    It'll be a worldwide nerdgasm in 3D. Wouldn't be surprised if they tacked on a fee to play the game in 3D, people would probably be dumb enough to buy it.

    An RTS in 3D? That's retarded. But so is 3D gaming at this point in time tech-wise.

    I want to see someone throw-up, because of this feature. It would make my day.

    Depending on what you mean by that, I agree or disagree. If you're talking about 3D input then yeah, it's ridiculous and gimmicky. If you're talking about gameplay then I gotta say that Homeworld was quite impressive. It's very different and very cool to really have to think about a 3D environment in a strategy game.

    Blizzard going for the cheap tricks. Way to go. I really hope that the 3D TV craze passes soon, it's funny in a sad way to see it pop up every 15 or so years.

    Maybe it'll be popular with some maps in the Galaxy Editor, considering it can deviate from an RTS like, totally.

    How precious. Blizzard becomes more and more like Bethesda with each passing day.

    i very interested to see this, i seen few FPS 3D stuff at my friends, some implementation was terrible, nothing but a gimmick and some where genius, really adding to the immersion and gameplay.

    but SC2 would be the first RTS to implement this feature, i would love to see if they manage to innovate.

    considering i havent seen any other RTS doing it and the succeed, it will be innovation...

    but if you dont like the word 'innovation' you may call whatever you call blizzard success to make diablo, starcraft and then WOW into world wide phenomena.

    I would guess the term is "stealing other people ideas and implementing them in their games". True, their titles are very popular, and with good reason, but after WoW kicked in, the company is going downhill.

    3D TV is a joke, so is watching it in the cinema is a major joke, I watched avatar, and wasn't impressed with the film or the effects, so we are now getting 3D TVs, which are selling for a bomb, but hardly anything supports it, we are still going through the high def craze, so yeah, a gimmick 100% don't see the point,

    The problem is that the current 3d movies are all mainstream tripe. I wouldn't mind playing a flightsim with some kind of goggle device on my head. I don't know about RTS games, will never play Starcraft so I don't really care.

    i thought that avatar was great in 3d and 3D TV's are no more a gimmick then HDTV's was few years back.

    you know the rule, no content no deal and no matter how amazing the next tech is (natural led now, no?) buy always the average cost one.

    we just had mass import of those natural led or something (who cares, very expensive shit) so all the regular LCD prices drooped, my friends and i just got our group buy new model of 52inch tv's for a RRRRidicules price, world cup never looked better 8-)

    They still have first to come out. Then we will see if the company is still worth cheering for, like in the past.
