The lights are on
As BlizzCon gets closer, Blizzard is offering a way for fans who can't make it to Anaheim, CA. The Virtual Ticket costs $39.99 and provides access to two days' worth of live HD content from the show.
Blizzard promises video coverage of developer panels, interviews with the developers of of the Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo series, the annual costume contest hosted by Jay Mohr, the closing ceremony, and on-demand replays of of BlizzCon content for up to two weeks after the show.
BlizzCon takes place on November 8 and 9. For more information on the Virtual Ticket, visit the official BlizzCon website.
Our Take:Blizzard says that real life tickets to BlizzCon sold out immediately so it's smart (and highly profitable) to sell remote access to the show to the millions of fans worldwide who missed out on tickets or can't make the trip. Plus, you can avoid all of those sweaty convention-goers!
