StarCraft II Details - No Co-op Campaign

An NDA for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty previews ends today, so here is the first information overload on the upcoming real-time strategy sequel.

New info: IncGamers reports on plans for DLC as well as trial versions of the game, which will be released after the game, not before, and they also report on DRM (even though Blizzard seems relatively unconcerned about piracy) saying the game will require a Battle.Net account and an online verification to install, but players will not need to be connected for solo play after that. Also, VG247 reports there will be no co-op campaign and that the game has a new logo. Finally, Shacknews discusses classic StarCraft units that will be making cameos in the sequel.

As for media, There's a new StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty story/gameplay movie on the YouTube (mirrored on ActionTrip and AtomicGamer) and a StarCraft II "Old Rivals" cinematic trailer on GameTrailers as well as StarCraft II screenshots on Computer and Video Games.

There's a Q&A with Blizzard’s Rob Pardo on VG247 and StarCraft II Developers Talk Single Player on IncGamers (highlights: Blizzard: PC Gaming Is NOT Dying! and Metzen Prefers StarCraft over WarCraft). There are also hands-on previews of the game on 1Up, BlizzPlanet, Destructoid, IncGamers, IGN, Shacknews, and VG247.

Finally, the LAN in Starcraft 2 Please Petition now contains over 100,000 signatures (thanks VG247).

You're being specific about a single territory, I'm speaking generally. Asia is not the only relevant region in the world when it comes to piracy.

No, you said:

it(piracy) certainly has never been as widespread as it is right now in every region.

And look at what I was saying before:
For Asia piracy has always been rampant.

I was never talking about countries outside of Asia, so again, why the fuck are you arguing with me?

Who can argue with an article from 2003 and a year to year comparison? Looks like plenty - There's all sorts of conflicting data and studies on piracy, like this example.

That is not conflicting data, because the data you quoted is from the Asia pacific region. Piracy is on the rise lead by countries like Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, which are incidently poor and do not have much broadband access.

According to recent Business Monitor International Ltd data, Bangladesh has a Broadband penetration of .7% . It doesn't even matter cuz the countries with the largest Blizzard fanbase are China and South Korea, and those piracy rates are going down.
