When BlizzCon comes back to Anaheim in October, it will be to the tune of $175 a ticket. Tickets to this Blizzard Entertainment Con are already hard to get. Now they're even more expensive.
Tickets for the October 21-22 convention will be available in two batches. The first will be on sale Saturday, May 21, at 10 a.m. The second will be out Wednesday, May 25 at 7 p.m.
If you can't get a ticket either way, you can also get a Virtual Ticket. For $40 you can get DirecTV and online
streaming access to live HD coverage from the con. That way, you don't even have to shower or wear deodorant.
All tickets will be sold through Blizzard's web site here. If you're loaded, feeling extra competitive and altruistic, you can log onto the site on Saturday, May 28 at 10
a.m. to try and get one of 200 tickets to the
BlizzCon Benefit Dinner. Proceeds go to Children's Hospital of
Orange County, plus you'll get to meet developers of Blizzard games. The catch? Tickets are
$500 a pop.
