    Default BlizzCon tickets sale announcement - June 2nd and June 5th!

    Exclusive coverage of Blizzard Entertainment's gaming convention available through DIRECTV satellite TV service and enhanced multi-channel Internet stream

    IRVINE, Calif., May 18, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that tickets for its fifth BlizzCon gaming convention will go on sale in two batches on Wednesday, June 2 and Saturday, June 5, 2010. BlizzCon is a celebration of the global player communities surrounding Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft game universes. The event will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California on October 22 and 23. Live coverage of the event will be available as a DIRECTV Pay Per View package and as a multi-channel Internet stream, allowing viewers online to switch between coverage of multiple panels and activities during the show.

    "BlizzCon is a unique opportunity for our players to meet one another, strengthen the friendships they've formed online, and have a great time celebrating a shared passion for gaming together with Blizzard employees," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "For those who can't attend, we're pleased to be providing an unprecedented level of access to the activities and attractions that BlizzCon has to offer."

    In addition to serving as a gathering place for the different Blizzard Entertainment gaming communities, BlizzCon will have an array of activities, including discussion panels, competitive and casual tournaments, contests, hands-on playtime with current and upcoming Blizzard Entertainment games, and more.

    Tickets to the convention will be priced at $150 USD each and will be available for purchase from the official BlizzCon website at http://www.blizzcon.com. Tickets will be released in two separate batches on June 2 at 7 p.m. Pacific time and on June 5 at 10 a.m. Pacific time. Those interested in attending BlizzCon can simplify the purchase process by registering a Battle.net account at http://www.battle.net before ticket sales begin.

    The popular DIRECTV BlizzCon Pay Per View event will return in 2010, available to existing DIRECTV customers in the United States for $39.95 USD. The event will again deliver comprehensive live HD coverage from the show floor on each day of the convention, including exclusive interviews, demos, and more.

    Gamers around the world will also have the option to purchase the Pay Per View event as a multi-channel Internet stream, also priced at $39.95 USD (pricing may vary by region). For the first time, anyone who purchases the Internet stream will be able to switch freely between multiple channels of coverage dedicated to different areas of BlizzCon, allowing online viewers expanded access to the panels and events they're most interested in. DIRECTV customers who order the televised event will receive this Internet stream at no extra charge, allowing them to watch in the format of their choice. Those who order the event will also receive this year's BlizzCon-exclusive World of Warcraft in-game item (availability may vary by region), to be revealed at a later date. Limited streaming coverage of the BlizzCon opening ceremony and certain BlizzCon tournaments will be available via the Internet for free.

    As BlizzCon draws closer, further details about the show, including ordering and programming information for the DIRECTV BlizzCon Pay Per View event and multi-channel Internet stream, will be announced at http://www.blizzcon.com.

    To keep pace with the continued growth of World of Warcraft as well as development on other Blizzard Entertainment games, the company is currently hiring for numerous open positions. More information on available career opportunities can be found at http://www.blizzard.com/jobs.
    Hmm...Looks like we're going to have to buy them by getting in line like last time, and not via the Blizzard Store like they said they'd sell them. Oh well, consider me first there!
    And sorry, didn't know where to post this exactly. I thought it was acceptable in here because it is a SC2 (and WoW/D3) event after all. Plus, it'll probably catch more people's attention here.

    As exciting as that would be, I think that 3 months from the game's release is a little premature for expansion info .

    Nah, just too soon. I mean the first game ain't released yet... I think kerrigan is in there because the picture is about the bad guys in the 3 games: Deathwing, Kerrigan, and...Diablo????
    Waiting...

    The Kerrigan in the header art just doesn't look quite right . . .

    Anyway, I'd love to go to this one. It would be my first Blizzcon (heck, first Blizzard event whatsoever), plus they would be having some of the first post-release SC2 tournaments there. I hope I can get a ticket or two.
