I hope Blizzard is going to let existing owners download the updated versions for free.
I'm cautiously optimistic on that side. On one hand it would be great fan service for the old school gamers who helped build the company into the giant it became. On the other hand, depending on the level of modernization, the conversions might not be that cheap.
Though I did end up getting a 'free' copy of Brood War when I registered the serial code from my original Starcraft v1.0 disc (from a Protoss box), so generosity is a possibility. But I would also be totally fine paying like $5 for an upgrade patch to my existing product.
I'm also wondering if the reason there's no early Warcraft and Diablo is because of the whole Blizzard / Blizzard North division or if they're just waiting to see the reception the bigger titles of the classic franchises receive.
