There are many discussions around the World Wide Web on how much Wrath of the Lich King Beta Keys are selling for. Over at Yahoo! They're reporting about how one key went for $1,000. Are you surprised about this? I'm not. Then again, most are and think it's a crazy thing to pay that amount of money for a "simple" beta key.
Let's think about it for a moment shall we? We all have hobbies and interests and while some love to pay a lot for tickets to certain shows and what not – others pay to see things earlier. In this case we're talking about access to the beta of World of Warcraft's highly anticipated icy expansion, Wrath of the Lich King.
Now, the question is, how much would you be willing to pay for early access to WotLK? Apparently some will pay a lot. Others rather wait. I know of someone who sold her key for close to $800, so 1000 is very possible. I'm also sure the cards from Blizzard's World Wide Invitational go for even more, since you get a special pet in-game as well!
Lich King will be out sometime this year, most likely in November or December. Having a few months early access to the beta for a price isn't that strange to some, especially since many players feel they've used up all the content that WoW has to offer.
