Can’t go to Blizzcon this year? Well Watch it Pay-Per-View style…

I recieved an email from one of our read­ers, Sco­tuskilmys­ter, and was real­ly shocked at what I found inside.

Now you can watch Bliz­zcon in the com­fort of your own home for the great price of $39.99, oh but wait there is more! You also get a exclu­sive World of War­craft pet Deathy the Mur­lock, access to an exclu­sive sale of Bliz­zcon mer­chan­dise, 4 live chan­nels of HD video pro­gram­ming that has video play­back and DVR fea­tures, and all the cov­er­age of every pan­el, tour­na­ment, and even the most epic of epic clos­ing cer­e­monies. Again this is all for the low price of $39.99, thats cheap­er than watch­ing a UFC or Wrestle­ma­nia! So instead of watch­ing  a bunch of sweaty men wres­tle each oth­er to the ground in com­plete non homo­pho­bic ways, you can watch how Bliz­zard takes a snails pace at mak­ing games, or watch some South Kore­an dom­i­nate every­one at the con­ven­tion in Star­Craft! 
Ok enough with the humor but is this real­ly what we are com­ing to? I can watch Comi­con, and E3 cov­er­age for free and I have to pay for this? I under­stand that Bliz­zard is now under the ter­ror reign that is Activi­sion, but when will com­pa­nies stop nick­el and dim­ing us? First Activi­sion wants us to pay to watch Star­Craft 2 cutscenes now we have to pay the price of a game just to watch some pan­els dis­cuss how the cre­ate the game and the deci­sions they made for that game. There is no way I am pay­ing for some­thing I can find lat­er on YouTube or any gam­ing site for that mat­ter. What do you guys think? This is thrown out to the gen­er­al pulic to see if this will catch on and I have no doubts that if enough peo­ple watch this, the price goes up next year with less con­tent, because that is Activi­sions oper­at­ing pro­ce­dure, hike up the price and give less con­tent.

    It is cool that they are offer­ing “exclu­sive” access and some dlc BUT I just can’t jus­ti­fy that price point! 10 or maybe even 20 bucks but thats push­ing it
    I am curi­ous as to how many peo­ple got dupt into fork­ing out the cash of this offer.…
