Diablo III Will Launch Sans PvP

A recent blog post announced that Diablo III will launch without PvP. Blizzard's reasoning is that while PvE is just about done, PvP isn't up to the quality they want it to be. PvP will follow in a subsequent patch, and will bring tons of new arena maps and all that you're looking forward to. This is an interesting move for Blizzard, who has always been famed for never releasing an unfinished game. I may just not be remembering history, but could Diablo III be the first unfinished game Blizzard releases? It seems like the further along the developers get with the game, the more things they're leaving to add with patches. At least it doesn't look like Blizzard will be charging for the features they're adding on, but it's still saddening to see Blizzard launching a game without everything there.
