Buzz Erik Lightyear O_O?
It's not so crazy, actually. People make major investments in games like Second Life and they do pay off. It's just as valid an investment as buying a share of a store or company.
o.o You have to be kidding me. There is so much other physical things you could buy which is worth the money.
'LMAO' is written all over his face.
The guy probably already has these, but wouldn't you much rather spend that $300,000 on each of the consoles, some new furniture, pay off some bills, etc?
Yeah, maybe the guy has satisfied himself, but I'd prefer to spend that kind of money on some real stuff.
Why blow your $300,000 on random stuff when you can invest it and get more cash? That's what he did. You may all be laughing at him now, but given time he'll have the last laugh. That $300,000 odds are will be more than that in time. The internet and MMORPGs may seem an odd way to invest money, but if a game is big enough (like Second Life or I'm going to assume whatever this game is), it's just as sound an investment as buying large amounts of stock in a company that's skyrocketing.
Exactly what I was thinking...
Probably his IGN.
I'd rather invest my money in some art, gold or just put it in a savings account. I wouldn't really consider an MMO as a long term investment. There'll be something else out to replace that game soon enough.
OMG! Are you serious? He actually.....Dude. That's a lot of money. Just imagined the server crashed, losing all data of the game with no backups.
i agree with guild*, the internet nowadays offers a lot of possibilities to earn money, and to invest that money in that virtual game object seems to be very idiotic in the first hand, but farther viewed it could be a goot tactical step to have percetages which brings cash, kinda virtual stocks', if you take a look at the success of mmorpg godfather' wow, which thousands of people play and invest money in, it would be probably lucrative to get a piece of this pot. that's the theory, but in the practice i would doubt to spend so much money because it seems to be too unsecure for myself:.
it depends on the success of the game he bought the item in, to tell the truth, never heard of this game
Wow, what a loser.
It's about as fool-hardy as thinking you actually own a house you spent that much money on. Even if you were to "pay it off," it's still in ownership of whoever can claim it for whatever recognized reasons.
well..i though the guy who wasted his life for a playstation 3 due to not paying the bills on his truck was bad....this is even crazier.
This is what i call the ultimate fiction of addiction in a theoretical correction.
....ok that was odd. i wonder if something bad will happen now
so in the game, who built and originally controlled this "Crystal Palace"? The game designers? In that case did they just make 300G pure profit?...
This would bring a new level to paid game content... kinda like DLC lol.
To infinity and beyond!
And look what I found...
what a fucking idiot. and any1 that pays real $ to buy virtual items for a stupid fucking game is also brain dead
Lol, he could have bought so many things with that amount of money, but... -_-
