So I've been reading several blogs out there on the internet about the South Korean rating board raising a fuss as a result the company dropped the RMT auction house for the Korean version of D3. Most of the topics primarily focus on potentially violating the country's anti-gambling rules...What about games like Aion that are Korean based with North American mock ups that run real money stores on the main website? A prime example 5x Felicitous Socketing (Eternal) supplements for $9.99 that gives a "100%" chance to enhance SOME in game items for something that is otherwise an in game gamble. Paying real money to stack the house in your gambling favor for games which have Korean origin is OK? However paying real money VIA in game auction to enhance the experience in your favor is somehow forbidden?
I realize this doesn't affect a lot of us myself included... but the whole topic seems somewhat shady and worthy of acknowledgement.
I guess if you buy a digital item for X amount of money, It's fine.
But if you have to pay X amount of money (however small...) and possibly, in case nobody bids, get nothing in return - It's not okay.
At least that's how I understood it, haven't read up on it too much. Honestly It doesn't make any sense to me either, but I don't live there. Different country, different rules...
