How much does the digital copy cost? I preordered at gamestop with $5 down, but I'd be tempted to just pick up an online copy if it's cheaper than the boxed copy.
I doubt it. They'll charge the full $60. This is the Activision-Blizzard that wants to take the fun out of games we're talking about here. Good old Blizzard is no more.

Ummm, Starcraft II is incredibly fun. If it's the full $60 it'll still be tons of fun and worth picking up. I was just hoping they'd knock $10 off for the digital copy since they don't have to box and ship it, but from their POV it's an extra $9.95 in their pockets ($0.05 for the bandwidth, which is probably overestimating )
Dang, its a shame that they finally opened the floodgates so close to the release. I'm sure there are lots of fans out there who wanted in and didn't get a chance (although they should have just preordered for their key if they really wanted it bad).
Arranged vs Random team is becoming a real pain in top tier >.>
Just lost 3 times in a row to the same freaking team with all random allies. Really annoying.
