Today in an official forum post, Blizzard hinted at an out-of-game Auction House service coming soon, available via the Armory website as well as an iPhone App.
This will engross people even more in WoW than they already are while they're on the game itself - who knows what will be next.
Brain implants so players never have to disconnect?
1. Good way to find a server with a good economy. That is, if they let us see all servers AH. 2. When i stop playing WoW for months, i would make a trail account just to check the economy on my server to see if it was a good idea to return.
If you look closely, the blizzard rep mentions that this may be a premium service. I'd love to be able to use the auction house from my phone, but I think I'd pay maybe $10 once for it. Probably wouldn't pay monthly.
This is fantastic for travelling. I had a full, basically unplayable copy of WoW installed on my netbook, JUST so I could check auctions while on the road.
