    yeah i was about to say something similar. i mean there's nothing blizzard can do about this but i think people trying to make a quick buck off of something like this is wrong. C'est la vie.

    Blizzard Underestimated their Popularity.
    Only pricks sell things for 6-7 times there price.

    Insane if you ask me, I can't believe the tickets would sell out that fast. This could mean Blizzard has a lot more to live up to this year, if the interest has risen this much.

    Holy cow...

    How many tickets exactly did Bilzzard actually make? If it was in the tens of thousands and it sold out in 15mins...whooo damnnn.

    Now this just makes me sad, I just went to check ebay and there are 4 tickets being sold for $2,000 altogether. That is just so wrong...

    15... minutes... thats faster then like rolling stones or iron maiden, metallica and all that shit lol.


    I sense great news within a near future for the game called diablo III, hell, jesus, piss and christ this is good news, blizzard will realise how deadly fans want this game and that will force them to make even harder, to make the game of the millenia, the game that will blow world of warcraft and all other MMO's out of the water, the semi-3d hack'n'slash diablo3 <3

    p.s. I don't hate wow d.s.
    Diablo is my oxid

    I don't know why Blizzard don't have a lottery system for their tickets, i.e. everyone who wants a ticket indicates so in the blizz account. That way they:

    1) Won't have refresh wars clogging up the system
    2) They'll have a good indication of how many people are interested so they can book enough space for the next event.
    3) It would also be good press relese fodder 'look how great our games are, x-thousand people want to go to our convention'.
    4) Tickets are tied to blizzard accounts/credit cards so there aren't ticket touts flogging their wares on ebay.

    Give everyone a week to pay, those who don't forfiet their spot and it goes back to the lottery.

    I'm sure there are some negatives to this, I just can't think of any at the moment.

    That is extremely fast for selling tickets.

    If it's thanks to Diablo3, i think they will have to reveal sth more than a screenshot at Blizzcon...

    WoW expansion knows for quite some time. SC2 also announced. Then along comes D3. Whamo! Speaks for itself.
    So we've got over the problem of colour in D3. Great. Now let's argue about everything else not yet set in stone and help make this game simply great! Game on.

    wow these next couple of years are going to be great for blizzard, not just the wow teams, but all of blizzard as a whole......record profits anyone?

    bet they are gonna announce starcraft universe - its not yet time for another rpg type mmo, wow is still at its peak and still going up

    that's freaking crazy.... I think the only thing that would've sold faster than that is tickets to go slap Kevin Federline.

    their new mmo is a new IP

    and no, it isn't too soon for something to replace WoW

    they only originally planned 3 expansions for WoW, guess what number Wrath is?

    also, blizzard and the WoW team aren't stupid, even if diablo 3 isn't a mmo it will still hurt WoW subs... The only people still playing will be the chinese who can't get a hold of M games w/o the consent of their overlords, and of course the same goes for the 12 year old petition kiddies

    so it is better to have a mmo in develpment for when everyone hits 99 and duping/mfing is the only thing left to do, so people will flock to World of Call of Duty or w/e the activision title blizzard is turning into a mmo

    I'm calling it: They're not announcing a new MMO at Blizzcon.

    I'm with you on that one. Three franchises is more than enough to go around for everyone.
