How do you "run out" of something that's digitally made? That's like saying I can't copy that MP3 because I "ran out." It's just baffling.From a business model, you have something that can be in ENDLESS supply and you put a cap on it and choose not to sell it... even though people are willing to buy it.... is this the Eric Cartman business plan? /too obscure?

Oh, I forgot to mention that this means Blizzard put a cap on how much they're giving to charity.BLIZZARD: Sorry, charity. We can't give you any more. We ran out.CHARITY: Aren't they just digital items.BLIZZARD: YesCHARITY: Can't you just... keep making themBLIZZARD: Yes CHARITY: So technically you can never run out of themBLIZZARD: YesCHARITY: And you... ran out...BLIZZARD: Yes CHARITY: You guys suckBLIZZARD: Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays.

I was wondering the same thing, it's just a digital file. How do you run out?

Can we get a comment color even higher than blue for the charity conversation? I broke my uprate button trying...

I was thinking the same exact thing. It's obviously a retail tactic. People think that the next time they are available it'll be "limited in quantity" again and snatch them all up again. Blizzard will then eventually increase the price to $15 due to popular demand and lower the quantity of the pets...it's really pathetic and lame IMO.

BLIZZARD: Great news! Our Creative Recreational Azeroth Pet Dept(aka CRAP) created more Pandaren pets! However, they are still in limited supply, so we had to increase the cost to $20.00. Have a nice day!

Alternately "See how many people bought one? Why don't you buy one to and be part of the crowd!"
