July 27, 2010. Another mark is going to be made in gamer history today with the global launch of Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty. This is a much anticipated game since the release of the original starcraft in 1998. There had been numerous times when the project production was delayed but as the marketing tagline says, Hell, It’s About Time.
There will be global launch parties but too bad there isn’t one in Manila. Nearest one will be in Funan Mall in Singapore.
The game goes on sale today in Metro Manila at Data Blitz, Neutral Grounds, and Digital Hub. The standard edition is priced at Php 3,500 while the Collector’s Edition is at Php 6,500 but I heard that’s already out-of-stock. If you have already pre-ordered, then good for you as it comes with a FREE T-Shirt and Dog Tag if you pre-ordered. I pre-ordered a copy as a gift for my brother but I’m still undecided if I should purchase one for myself. Php 3,500 is a steep price for a game but then again, it’s paying for a game from my childhood. Its a great game at that too.
Anyway, here are two great videos worth watching on Starcraft 2.
