BlizzCon 2013 'Virtual Ticket' goes on sale for $40

Tickets to BlizzCon 2013 are sold out. But, thanks to the magic of the Internet, you'll be able to partake in the festivities from the comfort of your keyboard. And isn't that what being a Blizzard fan is all about?

With the BlizzCon 'Virtual Ticket,' you'll be able to access live HD streams of the convention, taking place on November 8th and 9th. You'll be able to watch developer panels, interviews, the costume contest, and the closing ceremony.

Of course, there's loot for you to grab as well. The Virtual Ticket includes access to exclusive in-game items for World of Warcraft, StarCraft 2, Diablo 3, and Hearthstone. You'll also get access to a limited-time online sale of commemorative items to prove you were virtually there!

The Virtual Ticket is $40 and can be purchased here. Additionally, DirecTV customers will be able to watch the event via Pay Per View for $50 (which includes access to all other Virtual Ticket goodies as well). However, if you're feeling thrifty, there's still free stuff to stream. You'll be able to watch coverage of the BlizzCon opening ceremony and this year's BlizzCon eSports tournaments for free on the official World Championship Series website.
