According to Eurogamer, an American gamer forked over $100 grand for a virtual space station in the online RPG Project Entropia. The space station sits in the Paradise V Asteroid Belt and includes mining and hunting tax rights, a mall, billboards and the right to name the space station whatever the hell he chooses.
Over 236,000 players are registered and swap real US dollars for fake Project Entropia dollars. This isn't the first piece of real estate to command big bucks. Last year, some dude bought a PE island for $26,500.
God, why do you have to give idiots all the money?
