Diablo III Real-Money Auction House is Finally Live

By
Posted on June 13, 2012 AT 07:08am

That’s right, after a rocky launch and more error messages than you can shake a stick at, Diablo III‘s Real-Money Auction House is finally live.

Before you quit your job to become a Diablo tycoon, be sure to read through all the various rules and regulations connected with the RMAH, especially the one about needing an authenticated account. Hopefully this launch will go smoothly and there won’t be any more hacking incidents to undermine the value of virtual goods.

I think that spending real-money on a virtual weapon is insane. However, Diablo II had a thriving economy in which items would sell for thousands of dollars–luckily the RMAH enforces a $250 cap–so the demand must be there, I just don’t see what there is to gain from it.

Will you be using the RMAH?

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
