Starcraft 2 Beta: Pre-Orders roll in | PencilGym.com

with the recent Starcraft 2 Beta promotion, people that pre-order the full game, will receive a beta key as a bonus, amongst other bonuses for pre-ordering.

and the numbers are showing already.. just last weekend, i saw no higher than 13000-15000 beta players on a friday night/saturday night, and this weekend, that number has doubled to over 25000.

many on the Starcraft 2 game forums are saying they’ve gone ahead to pre-order to get the beta key so they can play now…contributing to this sudden growth in the beta community.

if you do the math, that’s roughly around +10k players, we can assume such a big number because of pre-orders, that’s a lot of pre-orders already…and it’s only the first weekend.

the pre-order is a mere $5 , and with numbers like this, Blizzard is already banking in gold for a game that is just in beta form…pre-order will “upscale” to a further $50 or so when the game does launch.. since a pre-order secures the future product purchase.

looking awesome for Blizzard..yet again.
