Say what you will about the insane things a gamer would buy. I still believe that buying the replica of Frostmourne is quite the bizarre use of spending your hard (or easy) earned money, but an MMO gamer showed the world last week that there were much more ways to spend cash on something so much more fleeting.
On November 21st, 2010, an unknown man who drove up to The Place in Bejing, a site in the city known for the place where “Everyone in Bejing looks up”, slapped down a folding chair, opened his notebook PC and started rocking the MMO gaming on 7500 square feet of screen for 10 minutes. Massively found out that the game of choice for this savvy gamer is Magic World Online 2. I would be laughing if this were a publicity stunt, but it looks like the guy had no affiliation with SDO, the game’s publisher.
“So how much DID this cost?” you wonder. Insiders, unsure if it people who know the details of the deed via the gamer or people who work with the LED sky screen at The Place, have disclosed that it would have cost him around $15,000 US to play for the duration. 15 thousand!
Fifteen Thou-No. I can’t do it. I’m going to go cry in the corner at my poorness. Here, here’s a video. Discuss amongst yourselves. *sob*
