Check this out at @EBGamesNZ tweet: "Pre-Order StarCraft II from @EBGamesNZ to receive a beta key to join in the fun early."

I got mine ordered from Cashel St Mall branch, so hopefully I'll get a call next Wednesday for my beta key! W00t!!

I ordered from Mighty Ape two weeks ago and have asked them about beta keys. They're waiting for the supplier to get back to them.

Tomorrow... those that have their StarCraft 2 pre-ordered from EBGames should receive an email with StarCraft 2 beta key for early hands-on with the game! This is going to be EPIC!!

Mighty Ape have just sent out beta keys to their pre-order customers as well - got one like RIGHT NOW.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

Just had my first game (novice 1v1)... great graphics... best part? I lose *haha*

Been a long time, and terrible to play on laptop with using just touchpad! Eeek :-D

Anyhow, I'm not sure how you add friends on StarCraft 2 but I go by 'Spar.thefirstkel'

I played the beta a while back, got a beta key from Blizzard, not long after that i got another email with a "Invite a friend beta key" to give away so i gave it to a guy on GP forums that wanted to play SC2 so badly. He was a happy man. lol

As for me with SC2 it didn't impress me much as in gameplay its practically the same as SC1. Graphics wise it looks nice but i felt like I was playing an update of SC, i suppose if it works no need to change it.

I see in the near future 30 million Koreans playing SCII for the next 10 years.
