Millions of people spend small amounts of money to obtain virtual items for their video game characters or avatars to wear and use proudly. But how many people do you know have spent a small fortune for one single video game item?
A Chinese man did just that, paying $16,000 for a one-of-a-kind sword in the upcoming martial arts MMO, Age of Wulin. The man won the honor of paying such a price for the virtual item through an auction put on by Snail Games, the maker of the title. Other notable acquisitions included two sheathes—one for the Hook of Departure and one for a Lordly Spear—which sold for $2,500 and $1,600.
In what can be considered to be quite the ambitious project, SEE Games has announced that they have partnered with Chinese online gaming company ZQGame to create a new MMO based on Columbia Pictures’ upcoming Total Recall remake starring Colin Farrell.
Th ambitious part comes in the promise that the MMO (massively multiplayer online) game will be free-to-play, and that it will be made on a specially designed engine allowing for a full-on 3D browser-based experience that’s able to present console-level graphics, characters, and environments with NO need for a client download.
