First Batch of BlizzCon 2010 Tickets Sell Out in Just 23 Minutes

If you were gunning to get tickets to this year’s BlizzCon, the odds are pretty good that tonight was not your lucky night: The first batch of tickets for Blizzard Entertainment‘s eagerly anticipated two-day event were snapped up almost as soon as they were let out of the gates at 10pm EDT / 7pm PDT, with a ticket queue of 10,000 already formed just moments after they went on sale. reports that as of 10:23pm EDT, all of the $150 tickets had already sold out.

A healthy secondary market for BlizzCon tickets has already formed on eBay, where the cheapest ‘buy it now’ offer we could find clocked in at $275.00 for a badge/ticket only (no goodie bag), and $500.00 for a ticket + goodie bag was not uncommon.

If you would prefer to keep your arm and a leg (the better to buy sparkle ponies with), you can try again at getting a BlizzCon ticket on Saturday, June 5th at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT. But if tonight’s sale or past sales are any indication, you’d best have lightning reflexes.
