You can earn real money with Diablo III, but Blizzard will retain 15%

You can earn real money with Diablo III, but Blizzard will retain 15%

Among the new Diablo III promises, there is one that has raised particular interest: the possibility that players generate money through the game through the auction house .

Blizzard introduces two types: the auction house gold (gold auction house) that will sell and buy gold items collected through the game and the auction house based in real money (Real-money auction house) which will allow users to obtain items through PayPal or using a credit card.

This could potentially attract many problems and farms, so Blizzard has decided to implement several limitations:
Blizzard se queda con un 15% de ganancias de la casa de subastas en Diablo III
    The items purchased with gold have a surcharge of 15%.
    The items purchased with real money will cost one dollar as transaction fee.
    Any amount of real money to be transferred to a PayPal account or bank account, will also be charged with 15%.
    The maximum amount that can be charged for an item is $ 250.
    There can be only 10 items per user at a time at auction.

Besides all this, the auction houses are divided by region: America (which for some reason, includes Australia), Europe and Asia, although the latter will not have the Real-Money Auction House, some governments like Korea South were concerned about this feature, so it was removed.

What do you think of this introduction? The Auction Houses in games and generally impose some sort of fee for selling items with play money, but the introduction of real money is something that may not appeal to many, especially in the PvP area where the sands are finally implemented. Is it fair to deal with someone who has bought all his gear with real money when another player farmeó his long hours? And do not think a 15% surcharge is too much?

It seems that Blizzard has found ways to continue making money with Diablo III , even if a scheme "pay once".
