Price was ok.

MW2 was about 100AUD

SC2 was 69AUD.

Worth every penny IMO considering I'll get hundreds of hours out of this game. If you buy RTS games just for single player (and really, why?) then of course $60 is going to be a waste for you. And if you're not an RTS fan at all, of course this game is not going to alter your opinion. It was made for the fans of the first game and does little that would upset that massive fanbase.

Blizzard was charging $59.99 for PC games years before IW did it.

Is the SP that short that people are complaining about the price?

Just the terran campaign with a protos mini campaign in it.

The other stories will be expansions like they did for WC3 and SC1.

I really don't understand why people are complaining about it only having the one (but from what they say as long as the original 3 combined) story line with planned expansions. Blizzard said what it was going to be before launch, if you don't like it, don't buy it. Authors will split books into multiple parts to make each section better than trying to cram it into one book. If 1 game plus 2 expansions means each story line is better, I'm all for it.

I think the fact that it's only for the PC, gives it an advantage. Do RTS games sell well on consoles? I wouldn't have thought so myself.
