Diablo 3's real-money trading (RMT) removed for South Korea

Real-money trading removed for South Korean's in Diablo 3

I started my news posting with some Diablo 3 news, and I'm near the end with some more Diablo 3 news. Let's face it, we are all going to love it. Well, it seems as though Diablo 3's auction house will allow real-money trading (RMT) for items found in the real world.

The fact that this lets you trade in items and then "cash-out" to make some money, minus Blizzard's cut, caused Diablo 3 to clash with South Korea's anti-gambling laws. Blizzard sent Diablo 3 for approval, were rejected, re-submitted the game with this feature removed and it has been accepted.

 

But, we all know what that loot does to us, we want to find more... more, more, more. Just like Agent Smith said in the Matrix Reloaded, we all want more of it. But, will South Korean's still have that same lust for loot, if the monetary value is absolutely worthless? Where they can read on the Internet that other people have made X amount of money from Y item? Wouldn't it make them mad, bro?
