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!

Awesome. Definitely need to check into that.
lol 39,99 to learn on the internet that theyre making a new expansion for WoW
Wait so they are asking you for money to watch the things that almost every gaming site will be providing for free?
That seems like a lot of money just to watch it on the computer...
$40.............. holy fu.ck
You will be missed.
Yeesh! That price tag is something else, but I guess if you are that in to blizzard, and want to be among the first to see those panels and announcements, this would be a cool alternative to actually attending. If the price tag were smaller (like, maybe 10$,) I might have considered it. But, despite loving Diablo 3 on console, I can wait for GI to tell me about it. I hope they announce The D3 expansion release as day and date on all platforms.
