    They stated that at the previous price they were losing around 20,000 dollars to host the event. Blizzard is not being greedy or selling out. They are trying to break even.
    don't u think they are making enough money besides blizzcon to offer a fair price ?
    they prob make 20k every minute.

    I don't mean to be rude, but where are you getting your flight prices?

    I just typed in a search at priceline.com for Dulles to SNA (the airport you would want to fly into - santa ana) round trip and there are a bunch of deals for < $500 per person. Of course if you factor in hotel & rental car price will probably jump up, but I could easily see you guys staying under $1500 total for flight, hotel & rental car and food if you find a good package deal @priceline/kayak/expedia and don't eat $50 dinners each night.

    People pay $400+ to see 1 lady gaga concert

    Lakers game 1 of the playoffs next week is already 90% sold out, only tickets left are $215 for crappy seats.

    $175 for 2 full days with demo play and tons of presentations is not bad at all when you look at other high profile events. Really not bad at all, especially if you're excited for D3 and there's a speculated chance at getting into beta with your ticket =P
