StarCraft 2 Collectors Edition Unboxing

Today is the day that millions of gamers around the world have been waiting for. StarCraft 2, the long anticipated, often speculated and delayed title has finally come home. After a series of Midnight launch events last night across Canada, I waltzed into the nearest Futureshop and picked myself up a copy of the Limited Edition and I must say that it’s a damn fine package.
