Gamer Spent REAL $2 500 000 on a virtual property in a “free to play” MMO – the biggest online shopping spree ever?

Gamer Spent REAL $2 500 000 on a virtual property in a “free to play” MMO – the biggest online shopping spree ever?I guess we all already know that “free to play” games aren’t free at all and are built to lure people into spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on virtual good, but this guy took it on a whole new level. An anonymous player of Entropia Universe by Calipso Games (a total suckage of a game where ALL in-game items are sold for hard cash, i repeat that, ALL) had sealed a deal of spending $2,5 MILLIONS of REAL dollars on 25,000 virtual pieces of land, each sold for $100. Tell me about the biggest shopping spree ever. But, turns out, this may actually be a clever investment move (unless Calipso goes belly up in the nearest future). Could we be facing a beginning of a new era in banking and real estate?

The thing is, everyone who invested in Entropia Universe virtual property are eligible to receive a percentage of all financial operations going on in the game world. Annual turnover of Calipso Games is currently about $400 millions. So, that guy, who spend $2,5 millions on Entropia Universe virtual property, can now receive up to 27% of his investments per year. Which is a much, much bigger sum than he would make if he just deposited these money in some bank for a monthly percentage. Clever bastard, i say.

Entropia Universe Previously, virtual property was sold in other games like Second Life and in Entropia Universe itself a virtual space station was sold for $330,000 and a virtual resort for $635,000. But never there had been spent such a huge sum as $2,5 millions. I wonder, would it make real estate agents to look into virtual worlds? Virtual real estate agents… Somehow, it feels disturbing.
