StarCraft II continues the epic saga of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. These three distinct and powerful races will clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the legendary original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival. Featuring a unique single-player campaign that picks up where StarCraft: Brood War left off, StarCraft II will present a cast of new heroes and familiar faces in an edgy sci-fi story filled with adventure and intrigue. In addition, Blizzard will again offer unparalleled online play through, the company's world-renowned gaming service, with several enhancements and new features to make StarCraft II the ultimate competitive real-time strategy game.

128 MB VRAM - eh?
ATI Radeon X1600 or NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT - so outdated.

Btw, there already have been a post about this on SC2 Armory that those specs are simple copy-past of WoW's requirments. Just compare.

Yea, ****** off a lot of people too.

To be honest it did not bother me much. However I did find it odd that they even put it up at the time.. oh well...

Anyways.. if this is the "actual" specs then ( more open ) beta will be starting soon(tm? :P ) then the release ( prob anywhere from 4-8+ months from beta start )
