Beta Keys For StarCraft 2 Selling For 400 Dollars
Others will take advantage of this. eBay houses many of these legal extortionists who deem it acceptable to charge excessive amounts of money for items that aren’t available elsewhere – I’m amazed that eBay allow this kind of thing to happen.
Kotaku reported about a recent situation where those lucky enough to get a hold of beta keys for Activision-Blizzard’s highly RTS game StarCraft II are charging obscene amounts for them on eBay. These beta keys seem to be the most coveted video game products on the internet at the moment – see for yourself just how much they are going for. The highest buy-it-now price I have found is a ridiculous $400 (£258).
Even if this is your most anticipated game ever, please don’t put that kind of money down for a beta, never mind the full game.
