They will have brick and mortar copies, no one is "forcing" you to download.

I think he means that even with the brick and mortar copies, since you have to activate via Battle.net on install and, if I'm not mistaken, you can't play the game without this activation. Basically with something like SC2 you get all the drawbacks of physical copies (lost, damaged, etc.) and all the drawbacks of digital (active connection, servers online, etc.) with any benefits really.

At least I assume that is what he meant, Delphin please feel free to correct me.

All of the drawbacks or all of the benefits?

People that want to buy the physical copy so they have the box, can! If you happen to lose it or it gets damaged, you can easily redownload because it's registered.

+1 I bought my physical copy because of the nostalgia of actually getting a boxed copy of a game to hold and having the note pad, but I can re-download it at any time from battle.net.

Positive + positive = positive.

I simply bought a boxed copy of Starcraft II so that I could play early. The people who bought it via Battle.net had to wait until 10am, while I was playing at 1am after snagging it at the Best Buy midnight release.

OMG yes! This is exciting I have been waiting for news on Heart of the swarm. As long as the production values are as good as WoL was I'm in for another collectors edition.
