    That doesn't sound very good to me at all.

    As much as I want Starcraft 2, no way am I buying it 3 times. Guess I'll wait for the "complete" edition after the 3rd one is out or something... sigh.

    I guess it's ok if they price each part fairly based on its length. Paying £30 three times is a big outlay, so I'd expect each part to have as much content as all the campaigns of, say, a C&C or Warcraft game combined, and there had better be some originality and minimal "filler" missions. On the other hand, if it's £12-18 a pop (unlikely), they can get away with a more episodic length.

    I can only hope that they include all three races in the multiplayer section of every game and its only the campaign that gets split up. Otherwise what's the point of starcraft if you can't zerg rush? :p

    If it's pay for the first one and the rest are free then fine. Otherwise I'd rather have one giant install or download (D2D).

    Any other company and I may have reaised an Eyebrow, but Blizzard are a solid developer, so will be looking forward to it when it's out.

    Pfff, I dot' care how good this game is. As a StarCraft fan, I am disappointed. I'll guess I'll buy it, when they release all-in-one package.

    And I have a feeling that they will simply do the same after 3 years with the expansion packs. So you will have to wait 6 years before you get the full game. This means one thing: "We did not finish the game yet, and we want to cash in as soon as possible."

    If its priced reasonably then I'll still be buying it, I'd rather all the content spread across 3 releases than a half arsed hack of the three, of course I will be less than happy if the first release feels like an instalment and not a game in its own right, that will ultimately affect my decision for the future...

    I would imagine all 3 races will be in there of multiplayer. I think this is just a single player focus. I would not worry. They would not leave out 2 of the 3 main races in the game. Especially if there is a year between releases. They are not that dumb.

    Unless they sell teh 3 trilogy, and if you want to play Multilayer, you need to to buy a fourth one.

    So long as each part of the trilogy is as long as the entire 1st Starcraft or each part costs a third of the going price for a PC game im not fusses either way.

    Terrans: Wings of Liberty, 49.99
    Zerg: Heart of the Swarm, 39.99
    Protoss: Legacy of the Void, 39.99

    ... enjoy the price gouging. I guess this is what happens when you can't turn Starcraft into a monthly subscription style game -- just charge them *per race* and make them wait up to 2 years to get to play it all.

    Sorry, not gonna buy. And then companies ponder "Why do you crazy people pirate our games?!".
