BlizzCon Tickets Available June 2 and 5

Blizzard announced via press release that ticket sales for BlizzCon 2010 will again be in two batches. This year, ticket sales are on Wednesday June 2 at 7:00 pm PDT and Saturday June 5 at 10:00 am PDT, the earlier of which is just two weeks away. As has been the case in previous years, tickets will be available on Blizzard’s online store, and prices have again been raised as they are now $150 each.

As in previous years, both a DIRECTV pay per view event and an internet stream will be available for $39.95, and all users who purchase either will get the yet to be named in-game item. Different from last year, the internet stream will have multiple channels so that users can switch between panels, getting whatever news they may be interested in. In another change, anyone who orders the DIRECTV pay per view event will receive the internet stream for no extra charge.

If you can’t afford either the flight to California plus tickets option or the online stream option, some of the events, including the opening ceremony, will have limited free streams available online.

As previously announced, BlizzCon will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center on October 22 and 23. If you still don’t have a account and are interested in tickets, make sure to register for one before tickets go on sale.

We’re looking forward to what Blizzard has to offer at this year’s BlizzCon, and hopefully we’ll see some of you there as well.


  1. Ahh well, at $150 each, the tickets can stay where they are.
    Wouldn’t matter too much to me anyways, as I live in the UK, and it would be WAY to expensive for me to go. Still I WOULD love to be there.
    I’m definitley looking forward to hearing what’s going on, but I also won’t be paying for the streaming, as it’ll soon be on the internet for free anyway.
    And why pay at all? Don’t Blizz make enough money from the subscribers as it is?
    ALSO, do my eyes deceive me here, but are Blizz selling a FREE in-game item? Buy the live-stream package, and get a free in-game item, which isn’t actually free, as you pay $39.95 for the live-feeds… Very sneaky.

    First off, fear not, we’ll be covering BlizzCon 2010 just like we did BlizzCon 2009 for that other place.

    Blizzard loses a ton of money on the convention, since the very first one. Each con has become progressively larger, and thus more expensive, which explains why the tickets keep jumping ($25 each year the last two years). I’m not exactly sure how much it would have to cost to get people to STOP buying them. I imagine it would be pretty high.

    I’m already attempting to queue up for ticket purchases :p
