As someone with a job and a persistent internet connection, I can say I'm looking forward to Diablo 3. If Blizzard has real money item vendors in the game, I will be pissed.
How is this different than someone buying gold in WoW and then using that gold to purchase a powerful item? I'd rather Blizzard get a cut, than a goddam botting gold farmer. Shame on them for wanting to make money on their game by taking advantage of a system that players are already using! Damn them to hell!
