Just a quick note that the "Battle.net Balance" service that some of us will be using to buy and sell items in Diablo III has gone live. As it is not people can choose to add money into the service and then use that money to buy things like Blizzard games, game time etc. In the future we will use it in Diablo III.
This may mean that people can conceivably buy/sell items in Diablo III and use the real-world currency in their Battle.net Balance account to pay for World of Warcraft Expansions and more importantly World of Warcraft game time.
This is pretty huge. You could conceivably never have to pay for another month of game time ever if you're able to make enough money buying and selling Diablo III items. Interesting. Very interesting. Read the full official Blizzard blog post after the jump.
