Worlds in Motion reports
that you can now buy game cards for MapleStory
and other Nexon
games at your local 7-Eleven convenience store.
The game cards -- which cost $10 or $25 -- can be used to purchase in-game items.
At first, this struck us as bizarre, but it actually makes some sense. A 7-Eleven representative is quoted in the Worlds in Motion
article saying that the cards are perfect for the "tweens and teens" who enjoy MapleStory
-- a demographic that also happens to frequent 7-Eleven. The representative calls it "the Slurpee-beverage crowd."
It's a strange world. Next thing you know we'll be buying EQ2
game-time cards at the gasoline pump!
