Virtual Real Estate Sale Record Broken with $335,000 Purchase

It's possible to make real money in virtual worlds, as one user of the MMOG Entropia Universe recently experienced. He sold a set of virtual real estate properties for $335,000:

Jacobs, who goes by the in-game name of Neverdie, has made a number of high-profile transactions over the past few years, from the $25,000 sale of his in-game items, to his purchase of a virtual asteroid for $100,000. The purchase of the asteroid, in 2005, was believed to be the most expensive virtual item sale in history. That record was broken by the 2009 sale of the Crystal Palace Space Station for $330,000.

The recent sale, confirmed by Jacobs to the fansite, amounts to a value of $335,000. Jacobs sold a number of bio domes, a mall, stadium and a club to Kalun. via Geekologie | Image: MindArk

There are more people out there that have more money then they have sense. I had no idea this game was still running, and remember way back when it started. It's not the first sucess story I've heard from it though, but I'm sure a great deal of people have dumped money into it for very little gain.
