Blizzard pact continues with MMO pack-in.
South Park episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft" caused a stir amongst gamers when it aired last October, and while most agreed it was fantastically hilarious, there was a very vocal minority of World of Warcraft fans who got hung up on minor inconsistencies -- which really only served to make the whole thing funnier for the rest of us.
But Blizzard was in on the joke the whole time, assisting the producers with the creation of the machinima for the episode, which was recently nominated for an Emmy. Now that the DVD release of South Park: The Complete Tenth Season is on the horizon, Comedy Central will be repaying its debt of gratitude by including a World of Warcraft DVD-ROM with a 14-day trial in the set. How's that for corporate synergy?
The three-disc set (not including the WoW trial) contains all 14 episodes from the 10th season of South Park, including other favorites like "ManBearPig" and "Tsst," and mini-commentaries on every episode. South Park: The Complete Tenth Season will be available on August 21st at a suggested retail price of $49.99.
