Quick, what's the most you've ever paid for an MMO microtransaction? If you said $16,000, you might be the guy in the photo above. The Escapist
reports that this unnamed gamer dropped a huge chunk of change for a virtual sword exclusive to Age of Wulin
, an upcoming free-to-play sandpark MMO from Snail Games
He wasn't alone in throwing large sums of money at an unreleased game, as the devs also auctioned off a spear sheath for $2,500 and something called a Hook of Departure for $1,600.
Age of Wulin is currently undergoing a Chinese beta test, and gPotato
has plans to bring the game to European audiences
sometime in the future.
