Diablo 3

A rather controversial rumour sprung up over the weekend regarding microtransactions being slipped into Diablo III courtesy of its upcoming patch, but publisher Blizzard has since quelled the unrest, at least here in the West.

The aforementioned update, which will launch in the near future, was recently datamined, and it was suggested that it would add premium payment methods to the game. It turns out, however, that this may only apply to the Asian version of the release, and the company has "no plans" to bring such an addition overseas.

What do you make of microtransactions? Would you ever make use of them to save time in a title like Diablo III? Slowly close your wallet in the comments section below.
