New Starcraft II Trailer to Air During Tonight’s NBA Finals


I know lots of gamers who are NBA fans, and several who are not. Regardless of your stance on the NBA, you may want to tune in to tonight’s Game 4 of the NBA finals between the Lakers and the Celtics.

It seems Blizzard wants to show some never-before-seen cinematic footage to those of you who are glued to the Finals, and they’re obviously willing to pay the premium advertising price that comes along with that airtime. The footage will also feature voice-overs from two well-known Starcraft characters.

This isn’t the first game advertising in a major sporting event. Everyone remembers the Dante’s Inferno Super Bowl ad, and that one appeared to have a very positive response.

So, if you’re a Starcraft fan, tune in tonight to see the latest trailer. You might also see some decent basketball, but that’s not likely in a NBA game.

Crap! Looks like I’ve got to pay attention to the commercials during the Finals. I just hope they show the whole thing unlike the drama that occurred with the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 trailer.
