Want A Job Purchasing Diablo III?

Popular video games and events always seem to bring out the creativeness of people. From designing worlds of wonder and magic, to figuring out how to cram dozens of people into a store without violating some sort of occupancy restriction, you can bet that you’ll see the power of human ingenuity in action. That’s why it’s not surprising to see that a company is hiring people to purchase copies of Diablo III when it’s released next week.

According to an article on Kotaku, a South Korean company ran a listing on a job site offering a “one day job” to buy copies of the Collector’s Edition of Diablo III. The listing offered to compensate any and all expenses, and with each copy of the game, the applicant can earn 50,000 won, which is equivalent to $43. What’s interesting is that the ad was published by an outsourcing company, which means the people who are actually hiring for the job don’t want their name being listed anywhere.

For anyone with half a brain, that likely means that this company, whoever it is, is probably trying to stock up on copies of the game, and sell them for an inflated price. As pre-orders for Diablo III have already been closed by some retailers in South Korea, it appears that the game will be hard to get, so it’s no wonder that a scheme such as this is going on. Of course, the outsourcing company is denying that somebody is trying to stock up, by claiming that the games were “for an event inside the company”. We’ll see about that.
