Starcraft? More StarCRASS

Gaming PC

How much would you pay to be able to play Starcraft 2 right now? It seems some enterprising individuals have decided to find out by selling the Starcraft 2 beta access codes they received at last year’s Blizzcon. The going rate seems to range between $200 and $300 each, which is far more than the price attendees paid for their tickets to Blizzcon in the first place. A 200% return on their investment in six months isn’t too shabby.

Personally, paying hundreds of dollars to play an unfinished product for a few months is a bit steep for me. But after anticipating the sequel to the original game for over a decade now, it seems like some people just can’t wait any longer.  I suppose there are worse routes to becoming a game tester, like going on that terrible new reality show, The Tester.

Here and there ...

  1. This being Blizzard we’re talking about, anyone who buys one of those is probably only getting a few days of playing before the banhammer hits.

  3. I was awfully close to actually paying $350 on an eBay auction for a key..

    Luckily some blog my friend linked me to on Facebook was giving out some invites. I thought it’d just be another scam, but I got an invite mailed to me in a couple of hours. Go figure…
