In the long run, most definatly Id say.
People were still playing SC1 when this was released, and that is a old ass game.
and at some point Id guess theyre all going to migrate.

codmw2 has the huge advantage of being on 2 big console systems, and any time you put console sales next to pc sales, the pc sales get dwarfed. I think down the road though, the world wide sales will inch sc2 past it, kind of like the way wow has.

Not a chance.

Starcraft took 11 years to sell 11 million copies. Modern Warfare 2 sold 20 million copies in a year and a half.

I see no way possible that this game outsells the first one by double, even if it were released on consoles the nature of the game would keep it from selling like MW2 did.

I think SC II will have sold alot more & Alot quicker than SC did, SC II will have built up a massive fan base over the years, Hell i was excited over it and ive never even once play the original SC.

Ive heard that SC is massive the the far east/asia.

Its like Bah! said though, COD has the advantage of being on console ... How did COD even get compared to this lol. Lets stay on topic guys.

That's true.

It goes without saying that SC2 will outsell the PC version of MW2...

Consoles are a big market because of the relatively easy games and "low" entry cost. Not to mention an RTS is always an absolute failure on a console. I have tried playing Halo Wars and it was absolutely horrible with a controller....

It is also good to remember that this is only first part of the trilogy, so the combined sell could be factor.

Is it me, or is SLI broken? FPS is not what I expected out of my setup, especially during cinematics.
I'm forcing 4xAA + AO if that helps.

Anything lower than a 480 takes a beating with AA enabled so that's probably your main problem.
