There are no microteansactions in WoW or any other game. $15 for a pet is a transaction but there's nothing micro about it. The idea of a micro transaction was that you'd pay a little bit of money a lot of times so things that were worth something but not a lot could get paid for. Unfortunately the model doesn't work because bank fees make micro transactions a net loss so we essentially end up with either points systems where you buy a lot of points and the spend them in small amounts, or regular payments.Please stop pretending that selling an item for $15 even if that item is virtual is an economic sea change it's not.
