    Get something for free - sell it for money. I can see some logic behind it.

    Of course they are... C'mon Romire. This isn't new. Happened with Hearthstone too. It happens all over the place. People go into an event and get swag they don't necessarily want, or they decide to sell the swag because they may get something more later on. Anyway... It's not terrible. You want to place blame? Blame those who are buying them on eBay. If no one buys them... They won't be sold.

    This is rather far from being a new phenomenon. In other words, this has happened with every Blizzard game (and many other companies' games as well) and is nothing new.

    Doesn't surprise me. Doesn't bother me either. I'd do the same.

    Been up since yesterday, been watching, a few have bids, and a few have been relisted and brought down in price a few times, and some have 0 bids at all. Honestly, if they want to sell them , thats up to them, they paid to go to PAX, they got the goodies for attending, what they do with them is their business.

    I bought one for 50 bucks and sold it for 175. It's good, easy money.

    Normal... Legal...... Nothing new...

    There are - and it might come to a shock for some - indeed people who don't give a damn whether they have a beta invite.
    They couldn't care less, and just sell it.. Nothing wrong with it.

    Atleast now someone willing to spend upwards to 200$ for a beta can actually play it and maybe help out with the testing. Better to have someone who is actually interested in the game rather than have somone log in once and then never touch it again.

    some people dont want to ruin their experience before the game is launched by playing beta isnt it better for them to sell it to someone who will use it and find bugs on the beta instead of them keeping it and not playing it at all.

    Everyone who goes to Pax doesn't necessarily play WoW.

    Sure, but you had to stand in line for like 2 hours to get one. So the people selling these stood in line just to hit up ebay.

    If I had one I'd sell it in a heartbeat. Actually a few friends of mine would be pestering me to sell it to them...

    As would others I'm sure too. Honestly it's like giving motorcycle test drives out at a car convention, most people will take it because they actually want it, while others just because it is there.

    They should be forced to give blizzard their battle.net email when they attend events like Pax. Blizz gives them beta on their battle.net. Sorted.
    People would be less willing to sell their whole battle.net, and others would be less willing to have a separate account just for a beta access.

    I should just fly to the USA to get codes like this. Could make a profit. Damn. Who in their right mind would pay $180 for a month or two of access to a buggy version of a game.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    I'd pay...60$ bucks for a beta key. No more, no less. Too bad I can't do it without getting banned.

    I found a couple beta key reward cards at the very first Blizzcon on the side of the gaming rig I was using the check out the new content (AQ, as NEW content, crazy right?). Ended up selling 3 keys at 200 each. It was madness. I wish I knew how popular pets were gonna be. I still have a couple original murky codes around somewhere.
