Starcraft 2 does not have LAN

June 30, 2009


A blizzard rep has recently told Kotaku:

We don’t currently plan to support LAN play with StarCraft II, as we are building Battle.net to be the ideal destination for multiplayer gaming with StarCraft II and future Blizzard Entertainment games. While this was a difficult decision for us, we felt that moving away from LAN play and directing players to our upgraded Battle.net service was the best option to ensure a quality multiplayer experience with StarCraft II and safeguard against piracy.

Bad move I say. LAN has been with gamers for a long time and to suddenly remove it is like killing off co-op for games.

Ars Technica: Lower Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 prices in the fall

June 27, 2009

Ars Technica recently wrote up an article about how the playstation 3 and the xbox 360 will be cheaper this fall.

Apparently, the PS3 80GB versions will be constraint. Thus, will be phased out and replaced by 160GB PS3s. This means we can expect retailers to lower the prices of the 80GBs so they can clear out the inventory.

The XBOX 360 pros will be replaced with the Elite 120GB 360s as the standard. Therefore, we can expect deals and good bundles to surface and drive sales of the Pro systems.
