Diablo 3’s real-money auction house has netted one player a cool $10,000. WishboneTheDog has posted a ton of evidence on Reddit to back up his claim.

WishboneTheDog has posted up screen grabs of his Diablo 3 auction house transaction history and his personal PayPal account to show just how successful he has been in making money through Blizzard’s game.

There is even a Reddit AMA dedicated to his efforts, in which he discusses the state of the Diablo 3 economy, claims that it is rapidly slowing down and what his could mean for the future of online marketplaces in games.

He even claims that Diablo 3 players largely stop playing once they complete the game, resulting in a significant drop-off in auction house activity, but estimates that the economy should pick up once Diablo 3 PvP support is initialised by Blizzard.

What do you think about money-making potential in games? Is it a dangerous tool, or could it ever be the norm in years to come? Speak your mind below.
