[PCG] Diablo 3 will let players buy and sell items for real money - Page 8

Exactly. Just because "it was already happening" doesn't mean it was a positive thing. Should the UN take over administering child slave labour because "it's already happening" ?

The culture change and hundreds of smaller game studios going "well Blizzard did it" is one of my biggest gripes.

Don't be fooled, this is nothing more than Bobby Kotick prostituting the heart and soul of Diablo gameplay for more shareholder profit.

Next time Blizzard should give gamers some fair warning so they can put some lipstick on; they like to look nice before they get f*cked.

Fact: There has never been an online rpg where you could not buy items/gold.

Now, if the items are generated SERVER SIDE, to prevent exploits and abuse at the real money auction house, how can you play offline?

you cant. So stop whining, the game is more secure and fair this way.

I can totally see myself playing this game like a madman to find some phat loot I can sell for $$$ and then eventually the game will end up paying for itself. Maybe even more than that. I bet people will be eager to spend their hard earned dollars for epix lewt.

It looks like Blizzard didn't learn their lesson from real world trade in WoW. Now Diablo 3 will be even more appealing to gold farmers. :facepalm:

The only difference I can see is now I won't have to go to various forums to sell my crap.

I don't know...I think this will just encourage 3rd party sales. It will be acceptable to buy items, but if you go through a 3rd party then you don't have to pay Blizzard their cut...meaning the same items should be cheaper there. Though I am assuming the built in fuction will have a scam protection system in place...hoever, if a place actually wants to sell stuff, they won't be scamming.

And don't get mad at the sellers...they are just answering the demand. Blame the buyers. They are the cause of all this. Heh...I made a lot of money off of Ultima Online in the day. I remember at one time a single piece of in game gold had a higher value than most real world currencies.

Blizzard will most likely make it a very small cut so people won't bother with third parties. At least I hope so.
