A property on Project Entropia, a massively multiplayer online game from Swedish developer MindArk, was sold for $100,000. Yes, it sold for real world dollars. The game is based on a real cash economy and the Project Entropia Dollar (PED) has a fixed exchange rate with the US dollar of 10 to 1. The property, a space resort above the fictional realm of Calypso, features a 1,000-unit apartment complex, a shopping mall, a stadium for sporting events, 10 hunting biodomes, a nightclub, and an amphitheater. Unfortunately, no mental health facility is included–crazy!
