Diablo Auction House info

Post by S7 mrmiller on Tue May 01, 2012 9:17 pm

Interesting stuff here. I honestly hope this is a failure on the real cash side (but do not think it will be) as I feel this is going to be a good cash grab for Blizzard and something that they can not pull off on consoles. Therefore if it is a success = no console port.

A console version could just have an in-game gold auction house rather than both. They are separate.

I know, but that would take out some of Blizzards revenue stream, thus why if the real money one is super successful, I doubt Blizzard would want to water down their pool of potential profits. IMO.

Well, for the consoles they could do a token thing like in Forza where you use Microsoft points on tokens and then use the tokens to buy cars. I think that this is actually a good idea though. I know people would use real money to purchase items from those sketchy websites that would end up stealing information and whatnot. This seems like a more safe way for those who don't want to earn their sh1t in the game and Blizzard puts more money in their pockets.

Not making a console port would cut down profit I would think. The real cash auction house is an additional revenue stream. Taking one piece out does not equal loss.

I know they will sell more titles, but that is not a continuing revenue stream like the auction house. If they predict they can make more money staying with the auction house over watering down the users on a one time purchase, I donít see them adding the port to any consoles. Again, just my opinion looking at the business side (remember- no matter what they say they donít make games for the fans but to make the company money).
