Diablo 3 Gets Real Money Trading


Early this morning, at 12:01am, the embargo on Blizzard recent media day for Diablo 3 was lifted and a bombshell was dropped. Diablo 3 will feature an Auction House where you are able to sell in-game items for real money.

Naturally Blizzard will take a cut when or if you decide to cash out. Blizzard won’t be issuing you your money either, as you’ll be going through a currently unnamed provider to receive what you earned from your auctions. If you wish, you can keep the money in the system and use it to purchase items from Blizzard’s online store.

This announcement split the prospective Diablo III playerbase right down the middle, with some people saying they won’t buy the game now. Where do you stand?
