Earlier this year, the Crystal Palace Space Station went onto virtual auction in the Entropia Universe massive multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG). Entropia Universe is well known for its “real cash economy,” where $1 can buy you 10 PEDs (Project Entropia dollars) in the virtual world. The Crystal Palace is a huge virtual space station that orbits the Planet Calypso.

Well the auction just ended, and one “lucky” man (Buzz “Erik” Lightyear) has just won the Crystal Palace for 3,300,000 PED. If you haven’t figured it already, that translates to $330,000 USD.


WTB Stormwind, one million dollars!

I honestly would love to know what WoW would be like if someone started spending hundreds of thousands like it was tip money.

Money would be better off going to people who need it.

Indeed, you could get a lot of Primordial Saronite for that.

Seems like the dude just made a high risk investment. Chances of earning it back (plus more) are apparently there.

Which is fairly cool, it has to be said.

Might check out this MMO!

I played it for a bit, it's purely made for Americans trying to make money of the PEDs Koreans farm.

the game looks shit and the guy is a complete idiot, pacman looks more interesting than that pile of cow dung.
