    that's surprisingly high for a blizzard game. they normally make games for the lowest common denominator

    Now, time will tell whether that ADSL 1Mbit requirement is for some sort of online activation, or whether it's simply Blizzard saying that multiplayer is the way to go. Hopefully the single player campaign will be as good as the originals, though... or better! :D

    Geforce 7's would be around 4/5 years old by the time they release this? That's alright imo.

    I don't imagine the 1Mbit minimum internet connection will be required for single player - maybe you will need some kind of connection for activation or something, but that shouldn't need a minimum speed. Multiplayer will obviously need realtime bandwidth though.

    Agree with everybody stating it's higher than expected/normal for Blizzard but as I'm above recommended specs... I don't care. :D

    The min spec for the original Starcraft was 90Mhz.

    ... I ran it on my 75Mhz beast, because I'm that hardcore.

    Broadband in the min spec? I'll risk it and assume that the multiplayer will be big and receive lots of attention from blizzard.
    Can't wait for that potentially best game ever to be released (well, until the next c&c game comes:naughty:).

    im sure if you cut out all the fancy visuals they've implemented it will run fine on lower spec.....dont understand the complaining as the recomended spec looks to me to below current avg pc game spec. My laptop will be running this fine at 1980*1200 AND I CANT WAIT!!!!!!

    Hmmm... 3 MBit DSL is quite tough for rural areas...
    But as the main audience is in Korea ;-)

    Excuse me, but 3Mbit means 384kB/s... Is this so high for Western Countries? Here is something almost normal...

    when you say western do you meant the Americas?

    cause actually 384kB/s is kinda slow/average...for most people i know (ok except my parents they actually have a 18k connection....dial up, and the live in the boonies)

    many people run a DSL higher than that, or have a cable connection...alot higher than that.
