    My personal suspect that Blizzard will release right after BlizzCon but the people that went will get a free reg addtion. (because I figured 150.00 was WAY too much for just a ticket). I wondered if they would get to play for a week prior to a Tuesday release. But maybe a sunday night relase after Blizzcon would be great because those that went to Blizzcon would already have it. Again this is just a guess.

      That would be a sweet deal for those that shelled out the cash. Plus it would get Cataclysm in our hands earlier than I suspect, so I hope you’re right! I completely agree that $150.00 is too steep, but I think they’re just pushing the envelope too see how much they can charge. Who knows, maybe the Convention Center increased their rate. At any “rate”, they’re going to increase revenue by $2,000,000 this year from ticket sales alone. That’s a 45% increase from BlizzCon 2009!
