Gaming News: Starcraft 2 Trailler

If you've never heard of Starcraft then you're either not Korean or not a gamer. Starcraft is a Real Time Strategy (RTS) game for the PC and was released in 1998 by Blizzard. The same guys who created World of Warcraft.
If you're a gamer, then you'll already have seen tons and tons of coverage about Starcraft 2 which Blizzard just announced this last weekend in Korea (more specifically South Korea). Why Korea? In a country which boasts among the world's most technologically advanced and digitally-connected countries, Starcraft is huge.

Computer Games (PC) that sell over a million copies are considered a big success. Starcraft (as with almost all Blizzard games) have sold over 9.5 million worldwide. Korea accounts for 3.5 million of these sales. Needless to say that Blizzard has yet another huge hit on their hands and no one has even seen the game yet. How do I know? Let's just say that pre-orders for Starcraft 2 have already gone sky high and this game does not even have a release date yet.

People have waited over a decade for the sequel to Starcraft and it seems that their wait is almost over. I'm not a big RTS gamer myself, but I do recall that Starcraft held me spellbound for many an hour. And after watching the teaser trailer below, I'm adding this game to my must buy list. The only question on everyone's mind is ... will it be released in Winter 2007 or sometime in 2008.

Dude, I'm thinking more 2009... ;)

LOL. Yeah, if Blizzard holds true to their usual practices, 2009 sounds about right.

But we can always hope :)
