StarCraft II' lives up to 11 years of hype

John Mix Meyer, Wired -- Few games live up to 11 years of anticipation, but "StarCraft II's" slick upgrades mean the sequel's got a shot.

At midnight July 27, Blizzard switched on the servers for "StarCraft II: Wings of LIberty." The original "StarCraft," released in 1998, became an overnight success, selling 1.5 million copies in its first year on the way to more than 11 million copies sold in its lifetime.
