I was playing along youtube and look what I've found, a gameplay footage from the original game Starcraft as it was released in 1984. From a user named octopus1138 and according to him, his uncle worked as an assistant programmer for Blizzard/Activision in the early 80's.

World of WarCraft on iPad??

I used to play World of Warcraft or DoTA during the weekends and this really kinda looks cool because WOW can now be played on your Apple's iPad. LOL! This made me think that Apple is now starting to conquer/compete the video gaming world . Here's a bit of information below:

The makers of a browser-based game streaming service have shown off World of Warcraft running on an Apple iPad. David Perry, co-founder of the Gakai streaming service, demonstrated the popular MMORPG running on an iPad to show off the cloud gaming service’s potential. It works by streaming footage of a game running directly to a browser, thereby cutting away the need for a traditional game install, and taking away much of the processing and data legwork from the device, or mobile, used.
