C'mon buddy, you're going a bit far here. Personally I don't really mind it, people were selling Diablo items like crazy on ebay anyway. Sure they could have somehow stopped that by making stuff soulbound, but I can understand why they would do it - money. Diablo 3 could turn into a golden cow for blizzard, they can do tons of money without subspriction just by taking a fee to sell the items.
Don't know, seems as if some of you are a bit overreacting sometimes, not everything that is new and unsual will automatically destroy the whole gaming world. If you don't like it that's fine, but don't assume everyone has the same opinion as yours.
I know many of you think Bioware giving in to respeccing your AC is killing your immersion, as a matter of fact I think the Bioware way on this isn't going far enough. I want to change my AC anytime I feel the need to, not just the first 10 lvl after choosing my AC. I think it's still ridiculous and I earnestly hope they'll change it to a WoW style respec. No, I don't stand alone with that opinion, tbh you guys are the only ones of the people I know of who actually dislike this idea. Everyone of my friends and guildmates think it's ridiculous. Sure that's our opinion, but please understand that you're not the only ones with an opinion.
Anyway... as I said before, I don't really mind it and I'll still play it, I won't buy items for money though.
At the end of the day its about choices. Some don't like RL cash micro-transactions and some revel in it. A friend of mine will spend a ton of RL cash on TINY TOWER GAME APP to buy bux (which is FAKE MONEY) to purchase items he needs to build his towers up. I've played it and would NEVER buy anything, for me it takes the fun out of it.
Micro-Transactions is nothing new and Blizzard is just adding to an already growing trend. Remember, companies are doing this because it works for a percentage of the population willing to spend money to enhance their entertainment experience. It also doesn't hurt to turn a profit in return.
I'd never do it but I understand it.
