Diablo 3 Announcement Speculation

    Over in the forums we're having a small discussion on the speculation of what is going to be announced at the World Wide Invitational this weekend. Feel free to join in on the fun!
    Of note I just recently made a post making my case for Diablo 3:
    Ron Pardo at the GDC this week:
    "So you want me to announce the game before our announcement?" he said.
    "No offense, but I think there's like 300 people here, and I'll be
    ripped apart by 8000 people there [at the Invitational] if I
    pre-announce it - but it's going to be really exciting. I think
    everybody here will be really excited about the announcement."
    This definitely says a new game will be announced at the event, so this
    certainly proves that this isn't just a WOTLK announcement coming.
    The purple monster:
    If you look at the makings of the Blizzard splash page inside and out
    you'll see a reference to a CSS file called master.css. It's located
    here: http://us.media.blizzard.com/232309/master.css
    Of note are images...
    All are part of names from Act V (the final Act of Diablo 2).
    All of these point to images (they're releaseing one per day)
    If you put them together it kind of resembles maybe a purple walrus... Which is a trademark image of Michael Dashow who worked extensively on Diablo 2.
    Also, the battle.net forums have hinted at Diablo 3 if you go to this link: http://www.battle.net/forums/board.a...ame=d3-general
    which would be the Diablo 3 general forums it says "forums are
    currently down" however if you go to any other made up name it gives a
    404 error. So that is a guess that the forums are there, and just not
    turned on yet to the public.
