I'm not sure what you're talking about. If I wanted to buy a +40 jillion sword of epic wanking for WoW, I could go to any number of sites, and pay cash for that. I could do it *right now*. I could buy Diablo 2 items *right now*.

It is true Blizzard sells pets and crap like that for cash, but it is not true that they are selling anything different now. They're providing a cash auction house where PLAYERS can sell stuff to OTHER PLAYERS for money. In short, they're targeting the third party sites that sell items. That's it.
