As promised, here's our full transcript of the round-table discussion AusGamers was a part of with game director, Jay Wilson, out at the recent Diablo III event in Irvine, California.
The roundtable Q&A was attended by several publications, however this transcription only includes our own specific questions and their resulting answers from Jay. But as you can see by the depth, we managed to get some substantial details out of him by ourselves.
Two particular stand-out answers explained why he doesn't think the new Real Money Auction House system for Diablo III would work for World of Warcraft, and whether they've been toying with getting Battle.net on consoles amidst their console development investigations.
"Is it possible that another game would use this system, yes" he said when asked about the system's viability in other Blizzard products. "But only if it was a system that catered to that game’s design. Is there a chance that we would take a current game like World of Warcraft and transfer this system over to it? Well in the case of World of Warcraft, I don’t see that happening - I actually think it would really destroy the game."
