StarCraft II Pre-Downloads

The Battle.net 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.

Well that fine, but they lost my business. First off they broke the game into 3 parts. Secondly they removed local LAN; third they made the game look like a remake from the early 90's but with better graphics. They didn’t even bother to slim down the UI. All pretty pathetic!

So this is a lost sale to me.

Oh shut up. You're pathetic. You've been going on this "they lost my sale" business forever, yet you can't help but pop in SC2 comment threads. Every single time, you harp on every old debunked complaint with the same tired lines.

"More content than the original but SP story only about the marines! No sale!"
"I never played LAN, but obviously this shows they're evil! No sale!"
"Game plays like an updated Starcraft because 90% of fans wanted it that way? No sale!"
"Online activation like Steam! I wasn't going to buy it before, now I'm extra not going to buy it!"
"Letting people in South America rent if they can't buy outright? It's too weird, No Sale!"
"Digital prices the same as retail? The same as every single digital distribution source in the last 7 years? No sale!"

If you don't want it, why do you care so much?
