It seems like WoW players are getting another store mount.

I can understand Blizzard's stance on this... on one side, you have players who don't want real life money influencing their game.

On the other side, you have people with extra wealth lusting for a way to perk up in the virtual world. Blizzard can make only one of these groups happy but the latter gives you cash and the former doesn't. In a capitalist world guess whose voice is stronger?

In the end, these small perks don't benefit you in game, outside of prestige and as long as these kind of virtual purchases don't give people a +99 Visa Sword of Slaying I guess (almost) everybody wins.
