Beware Diablo 3's RMAH, Gamer Loses $149 To Auction House Bug

"It really can't be stressed enough, the Real-Money Auction House in Diablo III is a dangerous place. The South Korean Government did not prohibit the RMAH and ban all virtual-item trades for real-life money just because they wanted to be stuck-up douche bags, they did it to protect gamers from Blizzard.

Consumer protection in the world of interactive entertainment is a laughable thing. No one cares because most people think, "Hey, it's a game. No harm, no foul." That is, until you lose $149.00 bidding on a glitched item in a Real-Money Auction House." (Activision Blizzard Inc., Blizzard, Diablo III, PC)

thats alot of money for a digital item. Do other things go for similar prices?

Actually a couple people payed over $200 for an item. There is another game called Entropia where someone spent 2.5 million on their virtual space.

I guess some people really do have more money than sense. Not me though (unfortunately).

I never had any intention on using the Real Money Auction House. But after playing the game and using the Gold Auction House, i would NEVER use the RMAH. It is far too buggy and laggy and items get lost in transactions far too often. They really need to patch the RMAH and optimize it, especially if people are going to be using real money in there.

God.....There are few things more screwed up on this planet than pretend items costing money. I'd rather have a freaking crow bar in real life than a 500 dps set of pixels.

Can't agree more

Sometimes, even crow bars take time to acquire.
