I can't wait to see how much we get screwed over on Starcraft II.

The problem is crap like this only works in the short term....and most companies only care about the short term.
I wouldnt be surprised if MW3 sell less copies than MW2 (which IIRC is selling less than MW1) and so on till the company goes away. PC vs console is a cycle where one is on a sunset the other is on a sunrise. Right now we are in the console end of the cycle, but when it comes back to PC's....IW is screwed as PC gamers are hard core who WILL hold a grudge and other companies will come in to fill the void. THAT or you will see dedicated console developers and dedicated PC developers. Either is an acceptable outcome IMNSHO.

About $180 minimum, not taking into account collector's editions. Trilogy @ approx. $60 a pop. Blizzard preys on the dumb and the weak. Yes they make terrific quality games but I don't like their new business model ever since WoW was launched.


On the original subject of MW2, it's quite humorous to see all the 'previously enjoyed' copies of MW2 now sitting on EB store shelves. It goes to show just how great the game is for originality and replayability.

Funny you say that, I was thinking the same thing when I went last week to pick up some DS games for my daugther.
