A recent post by Blizzard to the forums says that all lights are green on new systems for the game.more Diablo III info

Now that Global Play is live, players can create characters, set up friends lists, gather items, and use the gold-based auction house in every region where Diablo III is available. To access another region, simply click on the "Options" button from the login screen, select the "Account" tab, and then choose which region you want to play in from the "Regions" drop-down.

As a reminder: please note that once the real-money auction house is available, players will only be able to access it in their home region. This means that, for characters outside of your home region, items cannot be bought or sold in any real-money auction house. To provide an example, if your home region is the Americas, you will not be able to access the real-money auction house on characters you create in Europe or Asia.

The focus of Global Play is simply to give you the ability to play Diablo III together with your friends in any region.
                               

No real-money auctions just yet though and that it will be region locked. So you can play with anyone anywhere, you just can’t buy/sell worldwide. Seems like a bit of a double standard no? It’s all to prevent what they see as abuse of the system. So a company in say, China, can’t employ 200 people to gather items and then sell to the rest of the world. It could become a cottage industry, setting up accounts and auctions around the globe for profit...or not.
