It's a term that refers to a "master copy" of the game being created from which regional copies are created and then mass produced.
Here's a couple of wiki links:
13/03/2012 19:20Posted by Kumoriok...next question, how should we know if it has gone gold or not? O.o
Sometimes developers announce it, but unless they do we have no idea. D3 could have gone gold last week for all we know. That Patch 14 would be the shipping patch is an indicator that that could be the case.
13/03/2012 19:02Posted by D3BETAI only see an EAN number, not anything about products being shipped. Strikes me as a little odd seeing as far as I'm aware the game hasn't gone gold yet.
Indeed. Not even a dodgy photoshopped pic of a pallet of boxes with a despatch label on it.
I doubt they would ship before announcing release date.
Edit: quoted wrong person :)
That they know the EAN number of Diablo 3.
The rest is just more speculation/rumour.
Maybe knowing German, and not going by GoogleTranslate would make a difference, but I see no "news" there.
i didnt know campanies ship games before they announce the release date, isnt that just a big risk for leakageness?
edit: i speako no englisho
It's clearly fake.
So thinking they have sent out the game isnt unheard of imo.
