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.
