You must have an active broadband Internet connection to play.

Ya don't say? Are people really that stupid that that has to be mentioned?

Wait, don't answer that...

... why won't Blizzard ship this game, as an updated image final install on a $10 8GB USB stick, along with a new $45-budget oriented Videocard, a $35 2GB memory module...etc.

That's a good idea (thinking 'out-of-the-box'), but then Blizz would have tons of freakin' noobs calling in trying to figure out why the video card won't go into the memory slot like their 10-year-old nephew said it should...

Really, hardware in a limited edition box could be something to look into. As stated, it would certainly raise the 'value' of the SE boxes. But with the literally infinite hardware combinations out there, it would be more of a shot in the dark than anything. Plus I can't see vid cards going that low (well, anything worth buying anyway). The RAM is another problem. You got DDR, DDR2, DDR3 (hell, some people might still have EDO RAM in their boat anchors for all we know!) ...

I guess another way would be to include a 'gift' certificate or voucher of some sort for the upgrades, maybe being sponsored by Wal-Mart or Best Buy or something like that. Then they could get what would suit their system...assuming they knew to begin with... *shrug*
