Do I need to buy multiple games to be able to play Diablo 3 with my wife?
Do I need to own Diablo III to download and install the game?

My brother bought the disk version of Diablo 3 and dowloaded the game and can play online with all features it comes with. I made my own battlenet account so I can play on the same computer the disk dowloaded on but it asks to upgrade to full version of Diablo 3. Do I have to pay 60 bucks then dowload it again when its already downloaded by disk? Or just paying 60 bucks give me clearance to play online with all features it comes with as if buying and downloading Diablo 3 for the first time? Me and my brother are using the same computer to play Diablo 3.

I think your account is only a Diablo 3 trial account, so yeah you would have to pay to continue. You would not have to download it again or re install it, it is the same client –  Cresh Sep 25 '12 at 23:54
    
so i just pay to continue and will be as if i bought the game? –  PURPLEnerples Sep 25 '12 at 23:58
    
Yes, if you pay the price from blizzard, or buy a key from somewhere else and activate on battle.net –  Cresh Sep 26 '12 at 0:15
    
where could you buy a key? –  PURPLEnerples Sep 26 '12 at 2:00
    
Blizzard's battle.net has a online shop were you can buy it. Any cdkey from a Diablo 3 game from a store will do and you can probably find stores online that sell cd keys for Diablo 3. Also see the "Possible Duplicate" –  Cresh Sep 26 '12 at 14:47

Once installed (either from the disc or downloaded) you can play Diablo 3 with any Battle.Net account with Diablo 3 on it.

It sounds like you've got one of the "starter edition" codes to play with, which has limitations on how far you can get in the game, among other things. If you purchase the full version on your Battle.Net account, you can both play on the same computer without having to reinstall.
