    Bobby Kotick wants to rob gamers blind.

    He wants to strip SCII of the gameplay and sell us a 20-30 minute video for $20 to $30

    Hahahahano.

    Seriously, no. If they try this, it will fail on an epic scale. Anyone who really WANTS to watch all the cutscenes pasted together into a movie either a) has the technical know how to do so already or b) can find it on Youtube two days after the game is released.
    When asked about the role of women in video games, Samus Aran said, "..." - and then she blew up the planet. AGAIN.

    Alright, taken out of context.

    He's talking about making a SC movie. It says 'cutscenes' to use as an example, but they mean brand new videos.

    Or in other words, ever notice how when Blizz releases a cinematic and lots of people go "Omg they should make a movie!"? This is them making a movie.

    And it's not robbing if you don't have to give money.


    So again, it wouldn't be SC2 without gameplay, it would be a new movie. He used the current cutscenes as an example.

    Kotick is just an idiot when it comes to explaining, and Kotaku is biased and not thinking about what he means.

    Don't get me wrong, Kotick is a greedy bastard who only thinks of money, but damn, people act like everything he says is "I'M GONNA RAPE YOUR WALLET", when this is something people have actually been asking for -_-

    While I'm not a huge Kotick fan, I think a lot of what he says gets taken out of context and misinterpreted. If this is 100% accurate, then wtf. But I believe he means an actual starcraft movie, in which case
    1) yay

    Yep, there's people who've done even worser things to deserve the phrase "I'M GONNA RAPE YOUR WALLET", like Bernard Madoff, who thankfully is in jail now, and for good.

    For an actual movie with new content? I'd consider it? Splicing the cut-scenes together? lolno

    The stars sweep chill currents that make men shiver in the dark...

    The linked article is biased and is lacking information.
    (Please Note: I hate Bobby Kotick.)

    From what I gather they are planning to use the in-game engine(that is used to render cut-scenes) to make full length movies.

    NOT to be confused with duct taping existing in-game cinematic scenes to each other.

    -I don't care what the next expansion is about, as long as the story is dark and rich so I can refer to it as Chocolate WoW.

    Would I pay to watch a genuine StarCraft movie? Yes.
    Would I pay more than standard theater fare? No.
    Would I pay to see all of the in-game cut-scenes strung together? Absolutely not.

    Bobby Kotick and Mark Zuckerberg sitting in a tree:

    E-X-P-L-O-I-T-I-N-G

    First they take your name,

    Then they take your soul,

    Cause making more money is their only goal.

    ---EDIT---

    I retract my previous statements, I gave Activision-Blizz way too much credit.
