Blizzard Countdown

The countdown is underway on the Blizzard Entertainment Website (thanks Hanzo) where they started the clock ticking yesterday for their promised big announcement (story). Meanwhile, the mailbag here at the Blue Tower has been filling up with entries from folks excited to see the same countdown on www.starcraft2.com (thanks StarmiT) which would seem to be an indicator of what today's announcement from the Tokyo Game Show will center around. Just to clarify, while the announcement may well indeed be about plans for a StarCraft sequel to satisfy those eager for such a project, the countdown actually appears on other domains Blizzard owns currently pointed at the same server, so you will also see this dramatic countdown (at 7-some odd hours as of this writing) on warcraft.com, as well, so there's no reason to be certain the announcement relates to StarCraft.
