Blizzard has announced that the publisher would be donating the ill-gotten gold from the recent Diablo III real-money auction house to charity.
Production director John Hight on Battle.net, "We'll also be donating all proceeds from auctions conducted by the suspended or banned players — including all of their sale proceeds that we intercepted as well as our transaction fee — to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals."
Hight went on to note only a few players actually had the funds to take advantage of the exploit, and "only 415 of those players chose to use this exploit for personal gain." Said players were, of course, banned.
The real-money auction houses were re-activated on Friday.
