They have explained multiple times why they are doing what they are doing and I'm not going to repeat myself just so it sinks in. You don't want to hear an explanation, you want to make an assumption that something has changed because you disagree with the decision.
Presenting some hypothetical situation about Diablo 3 doesn't make that a reality either so I'm not going to indulge you there.
Just look at the Gamestop listings for both SCII and Diablo 3 for a prime example of ol Bobby and Activision's influence going forward. MW2? 59.99, Diablo 3 and SCII? You guessed it 59.99.
Buying some lame excuse at how great the sp is going to be just because its some blizzard dev saying it, is pretty rediculous to say the least. Enjoy paying 60x3 or in the very least 60 and 39.99 twice to get the full single player for SC2. Personally I'll be passing on it altogether as I refuse to reward the full blown cash grabbing thats happening with this title.
Its a shame too, I actually liked SC1 and Broodwar.
