Blizzard Releases StarCraft II Demo (Yes, demo)

Not sure if this "StarCraft" thing is for you? Or were you a big fan of the original StarCraft but you're not so sure about this new game that uses such fancy things such as "polygons"? Well, you may be in luck.

Blizzard has released a playable demo for StarCraft II that contains the first three missions from the full game. Yes, it's been nearly half a year since the release of the retail game, but we're pretty sure that making a demo wasn't high on Blizzard's priority list when it already had millions of pre-orders.

Nevertheless, for those who were waiting for a chance to try it (but didn't have a friend who had a sharing code to give) can finally try StarCraft II for free.

Grab it here.

    Bringing demos back would be one of the most ethical and effective way to combat software piracy. Nobody could claim that they just pirate games to decide if they want to buy them, and software corporations could ethically pursue criminal charges against all pirates. Win-win.

    I wonder, how good or bad are the S2 sales, given how user/LAN party unfriendly it has become, compared to the S1 (where you not only were able to play off-line, but also could _officially_ play on LAN with up to 3 of your friends with only 1 copy of the game bought).
