FYI: StarCraft 2 Launches July 27, 2010 & Black Wii In Stores Soon

posted in: Game News | 0

blizzard-logoStarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty has a release date and it’s July 27, 2010. That means I need to get a new PC sooner rather than later. Or maybe not? Who knows? I may just tough it out and play it on my existing rigs. (As you can see, there’s virtually no desire for me to get a new PC at the moment).

I am pondering the notion of a new Wii though; a black Wii to be precise.

Starting May 9, 2010, folks can pick up Wii’s in either superior black or plain white. Both will come bundled with Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort and a Wii Motion Plus. The price will remain the same at $209.99.

And what do both of these news articles have in common? They’re both going to make a lot of money this year.
