I am worried about what this could mean where all the best items are for cash only, but I also see that those evil gold-sellers in WoW could be removed potentially if WoW moved to a similar system.Another interesting facet is the ability to link the battle.net earnings in real dollars to a checking account or merely to use Diablo III farming to purchase WoW time or to fuel my obsession with vanity pets. I am wary of the extra cuts taken from 1) posting Diablo III items for cash 2) a cut from the sold items 3) the fee to transfer out of battle.net and 4) the bank's fee for a battle.net to bank account fee. All of these fees are not known yet but an item sold in Diablo III minus the fees could equate to -5%, -10%, -$0.50, and -$0.50. So an item sold for $5.00 could result in $3.25 cash-out after some reasonable estimates for fees. Maybe #3.25 is still worth the time, but it depends on how much time was invested.Another great feature is the lack of soulbound items, so in theory, an item could maintain its value over multiple characters or trades. Furthermore, the ability to sell characters could provide some kind of payoff for those gamers unlucky in the suffering job market.
