I have a question about the in game Real Money Trading that is created by the game publisher.
We all know we can throw money at it indefinetely, but if the option to sell something for real world cash is available, can we take money out of the account?
That is to say, if the goal of publishers was to reduce illegal RMT by creating their own RMT shops, then shouldn't they also allow the player to make money off the game? Instead of endlessly spending money on the game for gems/pets/armor ad infitatum. Doesn't it seem a little one sided that the most you can do with the money in your account is buy more game time (or items from the shop)?
And that being said, does anyone else shiver with dread at the prospect of video game publishers becoming more like online banks with their services?
I have heard rumors about Diablo III allowing you to sell items for real world money, but this doesn't interest me if I can't then put that money into my real life bank account... (or atleast a paypal)
