StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty CE & Pricing

Blizzard announces the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty Collector's Edition, an enhanced version of the upcoming real-time strategy sequel. This announcement reveals the pricing structure for the standard edition as well as the CE, saying the game will be $59.99 USD, while the CE will be $99.99. The Collector's Edition will include a 176 page art-book, a behind-the-scenes DVD, a soundtrack CD, a StarCraft comic book prequel issue #0, a World of Warcraft mini Thor in-game pet, and exclusive Battle.net downloadable content. "We've been looking forward to revisiting the StarCraft universe with our players for over 10 years, and we wanted to offer an epic collector's edition that commemorated the occasion," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "This special version of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty -- easily our biggest collector's edition to date -- does just that, and we think StarCraft II gamers will really enjoy all of the exclusive contents." Some images come with the announcement, though it looks like our screenshots script processed them a bit oddly.

The Xbox360 and PS3 moved to this price point and people still buy the games. I doubt there's a significant difference between PC and console gamers that preclude PC gamers from dropping $60 for a video game that they want. And I'm sure many people play games on multiple systems. Why would they be OK spending that much money for a console game but not a PC game?

Regardless, it's another case of voting with your wallet. If you're not a huge Star Craft fan and the $60 price point irritates you, then wait. It'll find its way to the bargain bin. I say that as I patiently wait for Modern Warfare to drop to ~$20. =P
