Fans of the popular dark fantasy/horror-themed role playing game, Diablo, made a beeline for Funan DigitalLife mall to queue for the latest instalment in the series. Some apparently started queuing as early as one day before the game's release.

"These pictures were taken near the entrance of Funan Digital Mall which is the mecca for IT enthusiasts and those who don't mind queuing up for new products as early as 5am.
"At 10am, I was at Funan mall to buy some batteries for my Apple mouse and also the Jambox for my iPad. To my surprise, I saw a big crowd all queuing up to buy the latest game called Diablo 3 which is launched today.
"Diablo 3 is a game which features elements of the hack and slash and dungeon crawl genres. It was first launched in 2008. Diablo 3 is officially launched on may 15 at Funan Digital Mall. This game broke presale records and became the most popular PC game of all time for the teenagers.
"I wonder why people bother to queue up for six hours just to buy a copy of the popular game, Diablo 3."
Another STOMPer, ZZJ who sent in the photos wrote:
"This is total madness! The queue for Diablo 3 is much worse than that of iPad/iPhone launch!
"I heard that long lines were already formed outside Funan since yesterday, can't believe that people actually queued for the game for more than 24 hours!
"But the long queue for the game was expected since guys are so obsessed with Diablo that one even created a personal hell on earth right in his own room.
"However, please be warned that Diablo 3 could destroy sex life and relationships!"

"This is the launch of Diablo 3 at Funan. The long-awaited Diablo 3 has attracted crowds from all ages.
"We should not belittle the impact of video games."
