In a few recent years they have offered a limited number of pre-sale tickets, but a) no guarantees of that happening for 2013 and b) in years when holiday pre-sales happened the info about those pre-sales was posted by the end of November.

If I recall correctly, I think a certificate was offered to give as poof of the gift tickets. If tickets don't go on sale by Christmas, make your own certificate. :D

I wouldn't expect ticket fulfillment to happen until summertime again, regardless of when they go on sale or if there's a pre-sale. Have patience, info should be coming soon.

I think that was successful against counterfeiters. And maybe against scalpers. Since those weren't big issues it's hard to say if the countermeasures were successful, or if they weren't issues. But, of course, having started on that road, it's hard to come back.

Some say the Gateway opens tomorrow 12/12/12 for what will happen on 21st Dec
Maybe tickets will be released to coincide with this? :)

Did you want to know about general ticket prices, or prices for low income tickets specifically? I was awarded a LI ticket in 2012, and I'd be able to tell you how much that was.
