This is horrific and dangerous as hell, and opens MMOs in general and Blizzard in particular up to a whole lot of legal Do-Not-Want.If you want to compare this to an existing model, compare it to EVE's PLEX*. The major difference is that Diablo will have anywhere from ten times EVE's playerbase to astronomically more, and Diablo will have neither the size limiter of PLEX (i.e. the minimum amount of cash paid is equal to one month game-time and can always be exchanged for one month game-time) or the inherent value limiter of PLEX (once a PLEX is in-game, it cannot be re-converted back to cash except in the form of one month of game-time).* For those who don't know EVE, a person can pay the same amount as a monthly subscription for a month to get a one-month gametime code that can then be sold as an in-game item called a Pilot's License EXtension or PLEX for as long as desired, right up until the code is used to add a month's game-time to the then-current owner's account.
