CardHere comes an interesting trend – buying real world goods with virtual money – “The first real product, an XFX GeForce graphics card, is selling for L$20,000 or about US$80 (approx. $L250 = US$1). Makes sense, upgrade your system from work within the virtual world you’re running. What next?…How about something simple that generates from the SL itself, like user-created t-shirts a la something like Threadless? What do you think would work? Gosh, virtual currency for virtual things is going to be sooooo passe soon.” Link.

  1. Sorry, Project Entropia has been selling their PE Gold Card (a physical card to make logging in more secure) for a while. Cost 200PED ($20)

  2. hmm, this is not just a physical game card to spend more virtual money – this prdouct is being solid by an in-world resident…and it’s something that you’d normally buy in a store….perhaps not first, but more more product-y than a game card.
