Based on past releases, probably not until it puts out one or more expansions.

I agree, and I prefer that. The boardgame was obviously presented to us before StarCraft 2, and so it has pretense of being a StarCraft 1 boardgame. Secondly, there is the chance that some people won't like the sequel, so automatically incorporating the sequel into the base game will deter some. Third, splitting it up makes them more money =P

There are high-quality trailers at the official site. One is a cinematic trailer, the other shows art sprinkled with some gameplay vids.

I'm more excited about this than I was when I heard new Star Wars movies would be made, and thats saying a lot.

I've been waiting almost a decade for this. GO BLIZZARD!

The gameplay trailers on YouTube were pretty compelling. There was basically one long one in four parts and they showed some pretty impressive graphics.

Hopefully StarCraft 2 will be a LOT better than any of the Star Wars prequels. Yikes!

On topic, I hope this game will finally tax my $600 video card or I am throwing it against the wall.

I hope my poor old system will run it. Blizzard games always have had a "works great on older systems" theme with their other games, i'm hoping it's carried out with SC2.

The sad thing is that with blizzard, you'll have to wait another couple of years... its just like FGG on computer games...

Well, kinda like World of Starcraft. Now -that's- something I would rush to buy

Anyway, I hope Blizz/FFG don't rush it, even if it means a couple more months...or more >___<

"World of Starcraft"?

So, would the space-age economy be just like World of Warcraft in that a Mega Fusion Laser Blaster would cost less than the canvas bag used to carry the power cells in?
