The feature everyone wants to get their hands on for Diablo III has had some interesting information announced over the past few days.
The Real-Money Auction House is set to be limited to your region even though you can freely move between region when playing. Both Europe and the Americas will have access to their region Real-Money Auction House but there will not be one at launch for the Asian servers.
Most likely this is due to legal issues specific to China, needing time to iron out before it is implemented and needing to make sure that no international laws are violated via earning money externally. But now you have to decide, do you wish to play out of your region with friends that live overseas but have to give up the RMAH or simply play forever alone and earn yourself all that money.
The regions are open for all, but characters are region bound and you will need to level your hero once you decide to switch.
You may have your hero decided, but have you decided your region?
