Diablo 3 countdown timer?

50°
327w ago - Our friends at Blizzplanet sent along a mysterious little tip. Diablo3.com is not actually a Blizzard site (at least currently) – it appears to be somehow affiliated with Blizzplanet's network (there are also links to WoW Radio, so we're checking with them to see what's up as well).

But on both Diablo3.com and Blizzplanet, there is now a countdown leading up to thirteen days from now, which lands us squarely on May 1st. On Blizzplanet, there is a note that says "The Church of the Triune will be shaken in..." On Diablo3.com, the message is much more practical: "The number of days until half the web links to Diablo3.com. But why???"

So what's happening on May 1st? Best case scenario, of course, is the official announcement of a third title in the Diablo series. I wouldn't hold your breath on that one, however – while it has been rumored for a long time, it seems unlikely that Blizzard would break the news on an unofficial site.

But then again, maybe it won't be an unofficial site by then – if diablo3.com was sold to or otherwise obtained by Blizzard (they obviously own the trademark), and is switching over on May 1st, that would definitely be enough reason for "half the Web" to link to it, even without an official announcement of the game.

Either way,...

327w ago - BioWare has announced that Bring Down the Sky, the first piece of downloadable content for the hit video game Mass Effect, will be available for PC gamers to download free of charge when the game launches on May 28 in North America and June 6 across Europe.

In Bring Down the Sky it's up to Commander Shepard and the crew of the Normandy to save the day after a Batarian extremist group hijacks a mobile asteroid station in the Asgard system, setting it on a collision course with the nearby colony world of Terra Nova.

The "fully optimized for the PC" Bring Down the Sky is the first in a series of planned DLC that will expand the Mass Effect story and universe.

In order to access the DLC PC Mass Effect players will need to register on the BioWare community.

50°
327w ago - According to the NPD figures which were released today, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has officially sold over 9 Million copies worldwide since it's release!

In addition, the Variety Map Pack we recently released on Xbox Live and soon to be released on PS3 in a week; has broke Xbox Live Marketplace records pulling down over 1 Million downloads within it's first 9 days. Not to mention pulling down Xbox Live Marketplace in the process when it launched.

Some cool numbers we pulled recently to see just how much gameplay that actually is, shows that Xbox LIVE members played more than 30 million sessions and logged over 30 million hours of gameplay!! We're talking 1.9 billion minutes logged in the first 9 days!!

If you don't have the Variety Map Pack yet it's currently available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 MS Points and will be hitting the PSN store starting April 24th (US) or May 4th (EU) for $9.99 and includes four new multiplayer maps.

I knew we had a huge loyal community and it's always cool to pull specific numbers to quantify just HOW large it actually is. Also, don't forget tomorrow night is the Xbox LIVE Fire Weekend for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare where you can play with the team here at Infinity Ward and myself from 3 - 6 pm PST (6 - 9 pm EST) as well...
