Though I consider name changes and the like to be a lesser form of microtransactions, Blizzard has crossed into the real world of microtransactions by selling in-game pets. While donating half of the proceeds from the Pandaren Monk pet (and only that pet) is a nice gesture, it’s an obvious gimmick. $10 also seems a bit steep. I predict more than a few parents glaring angrily in the direction of Blizzard for that price tag when their kids beg them for the cute pets. More than anything, I’m looking forward to seeing player reactions.
