Guy in China Spends $16,000 on a Virtual Sword

For $16,000 you can buy 2,285 cheesesteaks. That’s worth three season tickets to the Phils on the tarp. It’s the equivalent of 5,233 happy hour drafts at the Dandelion. Or, it’s equal to the value of one virtual sword in a role playing video game that hasn’t even been released yet. A man in China dropped $16K on a sword in “Age of Wulin,” an online RPG created by a California company that is set to be released this spring. [NBC Philadelphia]
