I don't think thats what it shows. I think it shows that they could have done far far more sales if they had a little more sense about how they made the game.

Considering that they take 15% of RMAH proceeds and then another 15% when you withdraw your money, I suspect that without the RMAH, Diablo 3 would have been less profitable even with the increased sales.

I mean, how much money per game unit are they making a profit on anyway? Shall we say 20 bucks a unit and make it an absurdly high number? At that rate, for every 100 bucks that they make in the RMAH, they would have to sell 5 copies of D3 to compensate.

I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that the RMAH made more profit for Blizzard than the actual game did.
