    He said they are going to have the beta for 6 months and they haven't brought it out yet. Didn't they say the game was going to be out by the end of the year?

    Jack... Even if that was true, though it's not, it would quite possibly be the most idiotic move that EA could possibly make... Revenues are going to peak around Winter Holiday and then probably crash. A lot of games will probably get canceled and most companies will either be bought out or close up... This is why none of the big 3 are releasing consoles right now or even planning on doing so. They need to get as much money to brace themselves for what's to come.

    As for SC2, Blizzard will be fine, they have WoW money to go through a near world ending Armageddon and still be making games. For them releasing games? I'm not complaining, hell I probably won't even buy SC2 until the entire trilogy comes out because I actually want to be able to play the entire game at once, not in small episodic bits... We already saw what happened when we did that with Half-Life, we get screwed and have to wait 6 years for the last episode...

    If anything, I would like to know if either that gameplay footage was sped up or if that's truly how fast the units move. Mainly because, in that footage it certainly looked like Zerg was heavily overbalanced again, just like it is in the first game. I'm sorry but a squad of Zergs should not be able to take out a squad of units plus two siege vehicles... Then again he said that Protoss were the weakest so far, so maybe it's just that they suck too much right now...

    I won't say much of this. I'm just telling u the i got a close relative (kinda) that work in this art with EA so he sent it to me in a msn conversation. So i figured that it'll be cool for everybody to know what's coming to u. For what i hear, I'm spoiling one of the biggest not so secrets of the gaming business.
