Blizzard’s April Fools Joke: Battle.net Neural Interface for World of Warcraft (Sold Out)
On the 1st April 2012 Blizzard announced the Battle.net Neural interface for WoW. Although the device is between the limit of credible and not, we should wait a few more years before this interface gets launched. According to yesterday’s Blizzard announcement the device will allow players to experience World of Warcraft in a way they never have before: through the mind!
With its £13,299 price tag the Neural Interface is clearly a joke, so have a good laugh and read the official information below, originally posted in the Blizzard store:
