Gamer Buys Virtual Space Station for $100,000
I don’t know about you, but I can think of about a hundred thousand different things I would rather spend $100,000 on rather than a virtual space station, but in Project Entropia there is at least one person that would rather the virtual space station.
A virtual space resort being built in the online role-playing game, Project Entropia, has been snapped up for $100,000 (Â£56,200).
The space station is described as a “monumental project” in the “treacherous, but mineral rich” Paradise V Asteroid Belt and comes with mining and hunting taxation rights.
With the price tag also comes mall shopping booth and market stall owner deeds, a land management system, a billboard marketing system, and space station naming rights.
