Man Drops $16,000 For Virtual Video Game Sword

virtual-sword.jpg

Seen here prior to (or possibly during) the inevitable onset of buyer's remorse, a Chinese man poses with the framed depiction of an in-game sword he purchased at auction for $16,000. The sword will exist in the yet-to-be-released martial arts themed MMORPG Age of Wulan, and will grant its owner mystical powers. Oooooooooor +5 against armored opponents. Will it be possible to kill his character online and claim the sword for yourself? At least one blogger plans to find out. I'm gonna sell that shit on eBay and buy a scooter!

This Guy Spent $16,000 On a Virtual Sword Before The Game Was Released [gizmodo]

Thanks to kirk, who bought online gold for World of Warcraft but never got it because he's a sucker. I TOOK YOUR MONEY AND RAN.

    The sweet look of ecstasy on his face.

    Makes you wonder: heck is he doin' with his right hand?

    Don't be ashamed of your morally and financially sound decisions, Chinese Playboy, I 'bate in front of inexcusably expensive and utterly useless virtual swords ALL THE TIME.

  • I wonder if they gifted him the outfit in the left photo along with his purchase.

  • I'm in the wrong business! I should start making virtual swords.

  • Rofl. With the way online game content is nerfed and better stuff added, he'll be crying very soon
