San Diego Comic Con Tickets Sold Out in One Day

San Diego Comic Con Tickets Sold Out in One Day

If you forgot to set your alarm clock last Saturday at 9am, you missed out. All San Diego Comic Con badges are now sold out.

I’m not just talking about the four-day badges without the preview night. This also includes all the single-day passes.

This year is the fastest yet that the Comic Con badges have been sold out.  Two years ago, it took 6 months; the year after it took 4 months, and this year it broke all records and sold out the same day it went on sale.

If you’re still looking for a way in, you’ll need to wait for Comic Con officials to announce the sale of returned badges.

[Get your browsers ready] San Diego Comic Con Badges Go On Sale on Feb 5th

After 4 attempts to sell badges online, the hype and the popularity of the San Diego Comic Con is starting to grow.  Get your browsers ready, because on February 5th at 9 AM (Pacific), badges will be sold.  Will the ticket servers be able to handle the onslaught of the massive traffic? We’ll see.

It would be amazing if ticket sales become something like a Blizzcon ticket sale with tickets selling out in under a half-hour. As always, if you don’t get your badge? The Pixelated Geek crew will have the event covered for you.  Check out the montage we did from last year’s Comic Con here.

Comic Con 2011 tickets on sale now [Update]

It begins. Tickets are now on sale on the official Comic Con website.  Starting today you can buy your 4-day passes (without preview night) and single day passes.  All 4-day passes with preview night, which were sold during the end of the 2010 Comic Con have been sold out since then.   Back in 2009, 4-day passes sold out 4 months prior to the con with single days still available up until one week before the con.  For Comic Con 2010, 4-day passes and single day passes for  Thursday, Friday and Saturday sold out 4 months prior to the con.  Now, we wonder how fast tickets will go for 2011. Will they all be gone 9 months prior to the con?

Well, I know you don’t want to find out and be ticketless. So, do yourself a solid and get on this link now.

UPDATE: Holy carp.  Their servers are taking a beating. Good luck on getting a pass.

UPDATE x2: The registration servers are down. They will be back up on November 8th. (Thanks for letting us know, Brad.)

San Diego Comic Con International 2010 already sold out… except Sunday.

We are about 4 months away from the biggest comic and entertainment convention in the world and already it’s mostly sold out.  If you haven’t yet bought your 4day or even single day passes, consider yourself S.O.L. until next year.  That is unless you’re the type that just likes to walk around the exhibit hall and buy things that are still left on the tables. If so, then tickets for Sunday are still available.

If you’re not able to go because of tickets or not being able to fit it into your plans this year, no worries. We’ve got you and the convention covered. So stay tuned!

The 2010 San Diego Comic Con 4-day passes, with and without preview night, are gone. Sold out. Poof. If you didn’t get the jump on those passes, your next best option is to buy each day individually and pick them up on the second floor at the San Diego convention center every day of the con. Don’t lag on this because those Twilight moms and daughters might buy them all out in hopes of seeing Edward or Jacob.

As I am writing this, the indicator on the official San Diego International Comic Con website says there are about 25% 4 day passes (without preview night) left. Last year, comic con 4day passes sold out 4 months before the con.  Now they are on track to be sold out about 9 to 8 months before!

Snooze you lose

If you are planning to go to Comic Con, you only have two choices for days to go to as of now. Thursday, the official opening of the show floor and Sunday. Which is usually the day when no one wants to go because nothing much goes on on Sundays.

To get in on one of these days, go to http://www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_reg.php

First half of Blizzcon tickets sell out in 28 minutes

Posted by: |

Blizzcon 2009

At exactly 10am (pacific) Blizzard opens its server for the onslaught of Blizzard fans.  Even though Blizzard raised their ticket prices $25 dollars more, that still didn’t stop hordes of people buying tickets until sell out 28 minutes after the servers opened.  If you didn’t get tickets today because you forgot, overslept or just didn’t get into the queue in time, don’t QQ.  Next weekend, Blizzard will be selling the second half of the tickets.

And if you don’t get tickets then, well you have two choices. (1) Buy DirectTV and experience the con from the confort of your home, or (2) buy form a scalper. But those tickets are already up to a $810 bid on eBay.

Are you prepared for Blizzcon 2009 ticket sales?

Blizzcon 2009

Here’s a list of things you should get ready for tomorrow’s Blizzcon 2009 ticket sales.

  1. Set your alarm tonight at 8am (pst)
    This should give you enough time to to fully wake up and boot your computer. It also gives you enough time to make sure your internet is working properly.  If it isn’t, well, you have 2 hours to fix it.
  2. Don’t use a Wifi connection
    Last thing you need is to have your browser’s session interrupted because of some Wifi issue with your router.  Instead of using Wifi, hardline your laptop or desktop straight to your router.
  3. Create a Battle.net account and save your Credit Card information in the system
    You want to make sure you zip in and zip out of the check out process by having your information already in their system.  That way, it’s only a few clicks to get your precious ticket(s). You don’t want to be in the middle of entering your information then having your session somehow disconnect.
  4. Let others know what is happening, and have them help you out
    Tell your family members or roommates that you are trying to buy tickets to a very important event. If you need to go somewhere, have them help out by watching the computer for you while you’re AFK. If it becoes your turn to buy tickets, tell them to follow the prompts to buy the for you and how many of them.
  5. Don’t QQ
    If you don’t get tickets tomorrow, don’t QQ.  There is a second batch next weekend.

Good luck everyone! See you at Blizzcon!
