Blizzard Finally Sells Virtual Items In World of Warcraft
Blizzard finally offers virtual goods for purchase in its MMORPG World of Warcraft. The first wave of virtual items for sale are a pair of virtual pets that have no mechanical in-game purpose, but instead strike amusing poses while let out for display. Each pet costs $10, with 50% of the proceeds from one of the two pets going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation if it is purchased before December 31, 2009.
