    Blizzard has never made an FPS as far as I know. THis will be a good test for them.

    Something I notice on their site is that they'll specifically mention Linux on the trailer download page... perhaps they see Linux (Or *nix/BSD users in general) users as a potential market? One can only hope.

    Blizzard Entertainment has put up gameplay trailers for their upcoming console title...
    Yup -- just so long as by "upcoming" you mean well over a year from now. [] More likely two years, given Blizzard's track record on meeting projected shipping dates...

    i would argue that deadlines are easier to meet for console projects as (insert standardized hardware/os argument here). although as they are slated to release for all the nextgen consoles, that argument may be blown out of the water.

    my main issue is that i don't forsee many LAN parties featuring SC:G. while i'll piece together computers and build a LAN in my home office to play multiplayer PC games, i don't see myself going out and buying four (insert console here) and four TVs (or VGA adapters).


    although if they were going to port it to PC, the Xbox code might be a good place to start. heh.

    was i the only one that was deeply disappointed by WC3?

    Yes, of course we hate them; They're an evil company trying to take our rights away to create interoperability software.

    But, jesus, that game looks sexy. It's very VERY hard to keep up your morals when the companies do that to you; I hate blizzard, and I've sworn off Diablo, warcraft AND starcraft because of what they've done. But it's going to take every last drop of willpower left in my body to stop me from buying this game when it comes out, and there's a chance that it just won't be enough.

    apart from the cool cloaking effect and the fish-eye view, I see little or no revolutionary stuff. From what a trailer can tell, I'd put it in the oni/halo category, which happens to be a rather crowded one.

    It's been a while (since the doom3 trailers actually) since I've had a 'wow... this shit is awesome...' reaction, and SC-G doesn't trigger that for me.

    Then again, I might have played just a bit too much fps games to get wowed anymore. All I see in those trailers is cannon fodder :-)

    I've never heard of a game being released on *all three* consoles before. Is this new? And, do they really have the leverage to tell the console makers that they don't get an exclusive lock on the game? This seems pretty strange to me.

    All that being said, I'm looking forward to GTA4 on Oct 29 much more :)

    When I play this trailer I just get the 'key frames' with no motion in between...
    I downloaded and installed the latest DivX codec.
    Anyone else get this?
