    On the Blizz site they have a timer counting down....the timer is kind of like a cryptogram.

    At each minute it displays a number on the timer page....those letters have been decoded by some people at Warcraftiii.net

    The coded message is


    "Someone call for an exterminator?"

    That is the line that the Ghost units(Terran) say.

    Most likely SC2 will be annouced...or a FPS...though i feel its going to be SC2.

    Im still not sure though.

    Due to the announcement being at the Tokyo game show...which is all console based almost....we will see.

    Its obviously based in the SC world.

    Looks ver much like what was in that last stasis tube...

    In the Bonus BW level.

    So SC2 would have (perhaps) 2 new races? The Xel Naga and the new "Synthesis" race that's a bit Human, a bit Zerg and a bit Protoss?:eek:

    I guess I'll find out in the morning.:D :p ;) :cool: :rolleyes:

    Heh, I tried accessing Blizzard.com from my school, but it was blocked due to "adult content."

    Heh.

    starcraft2.com has been around since the first Starcraft, "just in case" I would be psyched if it was Starcraft 2 :D

    Wow... if Blizzard registered www.starcraftghost.com and starcraft2.com points now to the countdown...

    Its coming, folks! SC2 on the way!

    Probably subtitle "Starcraft 2 - Ghost Squadron" or something like this, hmm?

    Not one hour to go! Stay on line!!!

    Well, Ive never seen Artanis in Person ;) but this armor of the shady character looks Protoss-like - but is this a human face!?!?

    Im sure about this. SC2 is here, and here in Germany its 1 a.m. and on 7 I will call a good friend and tell him exclusively :D

    Hmm, maybe not a Protoss. Look what happens when you turn the brightness and contrast up...

    Maybe this is one of the new species :D Looks human though... oh well!
    The end of WCIII hints at SC2.

    20 minutes and COUNTING!!!

    I guess they want to have it ready by christmas! And since Apple do coop with them, we should have a smultaneous launch of the Mac Version. Man, what a gaming heaven: SC2, UT2003...!

    It looks like an infested terran of some type. Ah well, we'll know soon enough. God, I hope it isn't a Starcraft console game though.

    Imagine a game like starcraft on a console... with a conrol pad? This would be pure madness. And Blizzard dont produce console games. They wouldnt even put a timer on their page for the release of a 4 year old game. They would NEVER be proud of something like that.

    12 Min!!!

    Edit: We are at -10 Min. and the Blizzard site is not available...! Message "Server too busy" ;) :D :D :D :D :D

    I saw a rumor of a Metal Gear solid style SC game for consoles earlier so I'm a bit wary.

    They put Starcraft on N64 but it was a utter flop.

    keep us posted !!!

    can someone keep up posted on what's going on with Blizzard's website. Im inbetween apts and dont have my broadband connection anymore... there is no way im going to be able to get onto the site.

    I hope they do something creative with Starcraft.... not just add heroes and stuff like they did with Warcraft III. (dont get me wrong, like Warcraft III, just would like to see something different done with SC)

    although i would NOT like to see a FPS.....

    you would think that blizzard would get the idea by now that thier games a very popular, and that they will draw a lot of attention........

    and that maybe they should prepare for it, but they make great games so I forgive em ;) ;)
