Man Spends $16,000US On A Video Game Sword That Doesn’t Exist Yet

I like money. When the occasion demands, I also enjoy spending it. Apparently the above chap also likes spending money, having just shelled out $16,000 on a virtual video game sword, for a game that hasn’t even been released yet.

The game is Age of Wulin, an upcoming MMO from Snail Games set in ancient China.

It seems like utter insanity — why invest so heavily on an item that has no real world value, to be used in an MMO that may or may not succeed. The fact that this is the first I’ve heard of ‘Age of Wulin’ is telling. Will anyone be playing this game a year after its release?

Couldn’t he just have given me the money? I need that money for um… more games and tvs and stuff.
