Blizzard Not Worried About StarCraft 2 Piracy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2657 days, 23 hours, 49 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 7:53:44 AM GMT
Michael Ryder, vice president and executive managing director for Blizzard’s international operations, seems to indicate that Blizzard isn't too worried about piracy. In fact, the company believes there's enough incentives in the just-released StarCraft II for would-be thieves to actually shell out cash for the new PC game. (more)

Blizzard now moderating 'inappropriate' StarCraft 2 maps

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2662 days, 21 hours, 47 minutes ago
Friday, August 06, 2010 9:56:08 AM GMT
Look out, all you naughty StarCraft 2 map makers out there, Blizzard is watching. A thread popped up on the StarCraft 2 community forum in which a user named Cyrileo complained of his map being removed from Battle.net. According to Cyrileo, the mapped was deemed "inappropriate" by Blizzard and subsequently deleted. Further on in the thread, as reported by our cohorts at Big Download, Blizzard community manager Lylirra noted that all maps are "subject to review to ensure that they promote a fun and safe...

Now You Really Can Drink Like A Murloc

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2693 days, 23 hours, 11 minutes ago
Tuesday, July 06, 2010 8:31:51 AM GMT
Drink mead, World of Warcraft fans? If you don't, you may want to start, then start drinking from one of these. It's a new entry in Taverncraft's line of steins and tankards (they've done Warhammer Online ones previously), and rather than go the dignified route and emblazon it with heraldry and heroic deeds, they've slapped some murlocs on the front and a rather fetching solid pewter murloc on the lid.

StarCraft 2 getting 3D support post-launch

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2695 days, 22 hours, 50 minutes ago
Sunday, July 04, 2010 8:53:05 AM GMT
While StarCraft 2 may benefit from a "robust new 3D graphics-rendering engine," we didn't know until recently that the game would be receiving a post-launch patch enabling that other kind of 3D (read: the "needs glasses" kind). In an interview with IGN at a South Korean media event -- where, no joke, a StarCraft 2 logo-emblazoned Korean Air plane was unveiled -- production director Chris Sagaty explained, "We will be releasing 3D in the first few months, for those Nvidia cards and screens that support it."

Freemium WoW is not something Blizzard is 'spending a lot of time thinking about'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2698 days, 23 hours, 24 minutes ago
Thursday, July 01, 2010 8:18:40 AM GMT
While you may think your friends at Joystiq are only on the prowl for the hottest gaming scoops, we want you to know that's not true ... we also monitor the fabric of the universe for any tears that might upset its delicate balance. Do not panic, but World of Warcraft's lead designer, Tom Chilton, mentioned to PC Gamer that "at some point, it may not make sense for us to have a subscription fee." Now, pause and savor the moment, because it's fleeting. (more)

StarCraft 2 free for WoW players in Korea, loses 18+ rating

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2699 days, 23 hours, 14 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 30, 2010 8:29:13 AM GMT
Blizzard is tweaking the business model for its upcoming StarCraft 2 release in Korea. IGN reports that the RTS will be free for Korean subscribers to World of Warcraft there, as Blizzard reportedly wants to bolster the MMO's player base overseas. Other players will be able to buy the game outright for the US equivalent of about $54, or pick up $8 monthly or even $1.60 daily passes for the game, so Blizzard will still make a googoojillion dollars on the long-awaited sequel in Korea. No word on if these ... (more)
