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.
Only $20? Remember that a large number of copies are sold directly by blizzard where they can take almost all the profit except processing fees. At $60 a copy, I bet they are making at least $40. For US/europe anyway.

But yes, it wouldn't surprise me if the RMAH is a large percentage of their D3 income. Plus, its ONGOING. Kinda like subscriptions are for WoW. So over time it will undoubtedly be more.
