Quote from: sublime on March 04, 2010, 06:31:52 PMreally bad time to buy IMO. Basic economics man, supply and demand. when beta first came out, $300+ was the going rate for keys. Some even went as high as $400 or more. Once the second wave hit (blizzcon attendees), the # of auctions on ebay jumped threefold. I remember once seeing 180 results for "starcraft 2 beta". The price was going for barely over 200 and some people were making off with it for under 200. everyone knows another wave of invites will hit in a matter of days, the supply on ebay will be outrageously high again and thus the price will fall again. i was thinking about picking a key up off of ebay as well but it just isn't worth it at the current price. If 10,000 invites go out tomorrow you are going to be hurtin when you see the avg closing price on ebay. Just check the box for completed listings on the ebay search to get an idea of the avg closing price.

Quote from: cr8tvty on March 04, 2010, 05:36:29 PMI am very very impatient. So I bought a beta key to Starcraft 2 on Ebay. Cost me $320...You all think I'm crazy right? Well, yes I am!
