iPad will play StarCraft 2?

By on February 12, 2010


The topic of gaming on the new Apple iPad has been quite popular, with speculation of all kinds of ports to the new gaming tool. Speculation has been added by PopCap co-founder John Vechey:

“I think it will change gaming,” he added. “Here’s this new device that gets to more people with a really great e-commerce model attached to it. It’s really easy to buy on the iPhone – that’s part of what makes it successful.”

In particular, Vechey believes that the iPad will be ‘perfect’ for real-time strategy, saying that the experience may “actually be more fun than a lot of different game experiences you can get with a PC or console.” He also said that PopCap would be supporting the device, though he wasn’t sure which games would be ported to it.

Real-time-strategy Vechey says, well that quickly struck the thought – STARCRAFT II! The king of the RTS world. That is something I could get excited about; using a touch-screen to create Zerg hordes, to annihilate the Human & Protoss race! Will Blizzard and Apple team up to create this masterful duo? Only time will tell.
