Ultima’s Richard Garriott thinks all MMOs will implement bitcoins, and he hopes to be the first

The twitter Been waiting for something like this. Imagine if an MMO implemented an Auction house with bitcoins like that of D3 or a steam market with bitcoins cashing out on top. (Using bitcoins probably avoids much of the difficulty Blizzard had with D3 too) Maybe a Coin wars online MMO can be made :D Reddit's take

Soulbound Legendaries Part 2

via d3vative so previously there was revelation that end game items will be soulbound, from inc gamer Flux: To clarify, all legendaries are Account Bound now?

Diablo 3 endgame legendaries soulbound

Quick thoughts, if the high end d3 legends are soulbound, this would pretty much prevent any sort of trading at the end game, making obsolete the auction house substitutes such as d2jsp and forum gold.
