Last night’s launch event for Diablo III has been ten years in the making and it shows in 2 million pre-orders worldwide, according to Blizzard. Sam Clay talked to some of those waiting in line for the game.

Blizzard held the main UK launch event for Diablo III in HMV Oxford Street last night. We kicked Sam out of his house to interview some people in the queue.

Watch as people spill about their anticipation, which class they’re going to play as and the all-important question: are they going to pull an all-nighter?

Watch near the end for the dude who exudes Diablo III passion, and is no doubt still playing now 15 hours after the game launched. We salute you, sir.

Get it above. Despite massive teething troubles, Blizzard announced this morning 8,000 worldwide events were held last night to celebrate the release of D3, which has seen 2 million pre-orders worldwide.
