I saw love Mike Morhaime for saying the sweet words: Starcraft II Beta and Late February (which translates to: NOW !!!)

DJDarkstar5269d ago

Aye, It is coming soon definately, I like it :D

Cogo5269d ago

I wonder if it could be any truth to the rumours of starting with the Jace Hall show?

Maticus5268d ago

Yay, SCII is FINALLY on the way. How long has it been delayed by, a year??

kerriganss5269d ago

This day, shall be remembered forever!

Cogo5269d ago

Well, until the beta actually STARTS, and when the game is released ;)

Leord5269d ago

While the info is very cool, I think this day itself will likely be forgotten :P

For Adun, Tassadar Toridas my brethren.

Redrudy5269d ago

I tried listening to it live but it did my head in so thanks for the run down of it all.

Leord5269d ago

God damn there were many numbers!

Cogo5269d ago

God yeah! I mean, I think I have heard "million" and "percent" a million times now!

Thanks for this!

DJDarkstar5269d ago

Definately an interesting read, and good to see the how they are going financially hehe.

c0de5269d ago

Keep an eye out on Activision Blizzard!

I listened to it live - was pretty interesting to hear how they present the financial business stuff. Kind of made me want to invest in them.

Redrudy5269d ago

hah! someone else said the same thing to me earlier. I know of two people who bought shares in Blizzard years ago so they must be feeling very pleased with themselves. Wish I had had the sense to do that.

Leord5269d ago

Yeah me too. I think their stocks are still quite low in price. I got that interest myself.

How o I go about it? Never bought stocks before!

DJDarkstar5269d ago

Nor have I, but Blizzard would be the company I would invest in for sure hehe.

haqshot5269d ago

I have owned shares of Activision Blizzard for some time now, and my personal recommendation would be to buy now. The stock price is incredibly low now mainly due to weakness in the gaming industry overall. Individually, AB is still just as incredible as ever with fantastic future prospects.

Buy it up!

How do you handle your stocks? internet, Stock Broker, Ect?

haqshot5268d ago

I handle most of it online through E-Trade. It's very easy. It is always smart for ANYONE, especially younger people, to invest in stocks. I would strongly recommend it. Be sure to do your research though because it is just as easy to lose money. While I can personally recommend Activision Blizzard based on my research, most beginners would be safer by investing in an ETF of the S&P 500 index.
