    it will prevent the asia farming and supports the "all-world-is-earning"

    And Botters will be happy. I think, that system will support Bot-Development alot. And even the "normal" Player will think about using one. Easy money. Atm you have to work with ebay and such crap which is too much work for most.
    With ingame shop, hell, even I would get a bot and i hate them.

    lmao

    So you think "free to play" means "free to buy" as well?

    People might sit here and talk shit and complain, but in the end, 90% of the people who complain will still buy the game and play the shit out of it for atleast 2-3 months, maybe even buy stuff from the $-AH.

    As Blizz and many others already pointed out, when items function the way they do in the Diablo universe where you can just give stuff away when ure done using it, these item shops will be all over the place with or without Blizzard's help.

    Awesome idea, a nerd like me will approve of this, making some real money by just geeking around all day, farming random crap.

    Because all Blizzard games are digital versions of keeping up with the Jones'. When they get access to another means to improve their character, you have to do it to, or you will fall behind (or you will have to work that much harder in game to not fall behind). Cause if you do fall behind, you will not be allowed access to certain things. Consider gear score's importance in wow for pug raiding or even heroics lol =-p

    You actually missed all the variables:
    1. Rent
    2. Electricity bills
    3. Food for workers
    4. Game copies: 1 per worker
    5. Computers: 1 per worker
    6. Internet bills
    7. Supervisors' checks
    8. CEO's huge check
    9. Huge check to finance guy to evade taxes or Small check to finance guy + taxes
    10. Huge competition

    Solve that in D3 RM AH. With listing fee, sale tax, cash-out fee and low prices due to high supply.

    it doesn't remain does it when the vast majority of players can be running around with the items in 2 seconds flat that I earned to get, this breaks that feel of the game, YES it was there before anyways by people selling it in 3rd party sites, but that stayed out of my way, now its right there. it makes you aware and it is kind of a kick in the face. they are business and they are i guess entitled to do what they want and have the right to earn money, but I can't help feel that everything is now going to the casual gamers favor and some quick quid in your pocket.

    The thing is, this crap is making people who haven't played Diablo 2 lose interest in getting to even try this new D3, like happened to me.
    Because it just sounds horribly cheap and saddens me.
    If you never played Diablo 2 you could not begin to understand how HORRIBLE the economy was in the Game. Seriously, EVERYONE purchased items. At least everyone who was "competitive". No one cares if you do not join us in Diablo 3 - to be completely honest I welcome less of the WoW community to NOT purchase Diablo 3. The game will do perfectly fine without you...

    It doesn't make anyone "Cool" I think it just gives them both sides of the story per say. You can compare how D2 was with the gameplay in WoW and see how different the two games are!

    Not gonna support this so i wont be buying the game.

    I much prefer knowing that it's illegal so I'm not even tempted to do it. The fact it's now legal and supported is what drives me nuts.

    Blizzard is a company bet on making money. They are making ways of making more money. The game fun remains, enjoy it and stop QQ.
    Yeah, never pay RL money, and neither you can play successively.

    I was trying to go through the thread to find answers to some of my questions, but after reading, cautiously, through the first 25 pages... I think I'm just gonna have to ask and try to find someone neutral on the situation to answer. now note, the most I've ever played the Diablo franchise is some 1, and some 2, solo on my computer because my friend gave me a cracked version of D2 - so at best I could only play it alone.

    1) When playing solo, are they setting it up so you will still be playing "on" a battle.net dedicated server?
    2) Has there been any indication for D3 that you -have- to group up (either with friends or strangers) to play this?
    3) in the older Diablos, could you trade (or sell) items you got in 'solo play' also, or were the items only... sellable when items dropped in a group or something?

    Newbish questions? Yes. I'm not entirely sure how to handle this announcement, but since I am not incredibly familiar with Diablo's playstyle I'm reserving judgement. If I still have the ability to boot it up, go through some random dunegons voodooing my way through it solo, then I really do not care. ...-and- if I can chuck a few things on the AH and make maybe 3, 4 extra bucks a month, that's a free month of wow in 3 months or so. I'm fine with that.

    It was never illegal in D2 to buy items from 3rd parties.

    No, but it means he can at least claim he knows what he's talking about, unlike so many others in this thread who are speaking like an authority about a game they haven't even experienced.

    Well on the other side I'm also happy, too, not to join a community that approves of this shit.
    And on a side note, I'm not part of the WoW community, but just this forum.

    So what was the need of implementing this at this point?
    I just don't get it now lol.

    By saturating the market with competition, you actually do discourage it. With the amount of players who will be using this system (and I assure you, there will be lots of them), the market will be too saturated for it to be a viable source of revenue. They'll still do it, but it'll be far less lucrative than it was before, and there won't nearly be as many.

    People had already bought and sold items in D2 through third-party websites; it was part of the endgame for a large chunk of the playerbase. I supposed they figured they'd do something with that. Regardless, it's more efficient and much safer for players who were planning on doing this anyways.

    Really don't understand what the uproar is about. Too many of you are focusing too much on the buying portion of these transactions, and not enough on the selling. You technically don't even have to spend any actual money to participate. Selling items in-game will put currency credit onto your B.Net account, which you can use to buy other items that players are selling. Nothing you physically own has to change hands.

    It functions similarly to gold, except it won't be subject to as much inflation as Gold would be, and you can exchange it for a tangible currency. I'd say it's a hell of a lot better than Gold.
