    I have one of these sat at home... Kul Tiras server blade... its a rather nice item hehehe

    Can get them fairly cheap (got mine for £93 incl shipping) but they can take a while to arrive

    I guess that's one way to get around ROHS costs while drumming up some positive PR.

    Perhaps if the PR is good enough, they might need them back

    Sounds like a very good idea to me. Good PR for Blizzard, a fair amount of money for charity & a safe way of deposing of all the goods!


    Imagine Electronic Arts doing that...

    This reminds of a tape disposal company who used to hand out little cubes of shredded waste at shows, it did make me wonder is that was how they disposed of all of the tapes by giving them away to future customers.
