    Well, we finally have a release date. That's something I guess.

    Awesome! Unexciting content for the game that was the same game as that ten year old game with slightly better graphics is coming out ages after launch! Will it come with an online marketplace and always-online DRM too? That would be AWESOME,

    You got to hand it to Blizzard, they have the psychology of their fanbase nailed squarely.

      Well you clearly never played BW.
      To say that they are the same game is a insult.

    Any word on a Collector's Edition?

      There is:

        Yeah, found it later in the day and placed my order. :D
