StarCraft II Pre-Downloads

The Web Beta is now offering the opportunity to pre-download the digitally distributed edition of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, provided you plan to purchase the game directly from Blizzard, warning: "If you are planning to buy a boxed copy from a retail store, this is not for you!" This will allow players to begin playing more quickly when the game goes on sale on July 27. Blizzard has previously stated that digital distribution would come after the real-time strategy sequel appeared in stores, but it turns out they were splitting hairs, saying: "They’ll go on sale slightly later, on 07/27/2010 10:00 AM PDT in North America and Latin America." Thanks IncGamers.

I'm going to wait until a few weeks after launch to decide on buying this game unless it's offered on sale for $29.99. From everything I've read about this game I'm feeling that either they need to heavily discount it or I need to hear people playing it explaining why all this online BS is worth $50 of $60...LOL. (SP all online all the time, real ID needed to use many features online to play?, etc., at this point I want proof that this game isn't going to be tied down with a bunch of bloatware on the back end) down in flames after discounting their currency!
Kickstarter "Game Developer"!
