2008 GDC: Pardo Nay-Says Micro-Transaction Model On WoW

Rob Pardo said to GamesIndustry.biz at 2008 GDC San Francisco that a micro-transaction system implemented to WoW would feel like a betrayal to fans.  It’s not remotely considered by Blizzard.  What may work for other games, won’t ever work for World of Warcraft.
