And if you think for one instant that Vivendi (french owned company that owns and is running world of warcraft) doesnt have a micro payment model ready to go at a moments notice your uninformed. They are simply waiting to see what happens. WOW/Vivendi will be on the micro payment bandwagon soon enough.

If anything's going to kill WoW, it's going to be Vivendi stupidly sticking it's fingers into the pie.

So, you can buy gold. My only question is... can u sell it? If so, I just found my new career...

You can't buy or sell gold using station cash. The items on there so far are all no-trade and consist of XP potions (like the veteran reward ones), appearance armour sets and non-combat pets.

He's right that there's nothing game-breaking in there but I think reactions people have had to it are justified. I think the impression people are getting with this (especially after they kept trying to push LON at us) is that they're being milked for cash. It's a little unpleasant.

Vivendi does not own WoW.

Printing game characters is going to get popular in 2009. www.figureprints.com got this going. But there are others like www.jujups.com and www.shapeways.com already offering 3D print services. It is likely, most game characters will soon be printed out soon.
