Fail

If Blizzard think they are big enough and loved enough to pull this shit, i have a feeling they might be in for a rude shock.

Of course, maybe there are some details we are not aware of, but its still a fail on the account of Blizzards
PR for the way it has been announced, the conclusions people will draw and the subsequent backlash that will follow.

If they halfed the amount of missions and released a game with all three races included, then releasing an expansion after with the rest of the content, i think thats a pill i could swallow.

They are going to have to make it pretty fucking special to keep me interested with one race over the course of 26-30 missions.

Not to mention here is Australia, each game will probably be somewhere around $100 each. Thats $300 for the entire experience.

That is some bullshit isn't it. Especially as you mention the prices we pay for a single game here, Down Under and other places like NZ etc. This could kill off the chances of me buying the game/series unless they start announcing something special to get my interest back.

It is bullshit, but you gotta figure that every person in South Korea is going to buy each copy. $$$

It is quite surprising that a move of this kind would come from Blizzard, but you have to remember that they have merged with Activision, so maybe it's the latter than wants them to split Starcraft III into parts.  The fact that they want to make more money isn't too far off either.

they ARE big enough, though.
