That's insane. If I had that much money, I'd settle on buying a little cottage somewhere and just relax.

I had no idea this game was still running!

Tried it in the early days. Didn't like it.

It could have been staged just to advertise the game.

They don't need to stage an advert like that, the game has been around since 2003 and is extremely successful.

Alot of people use the game as an investment just like in real life, It was probably a company that made this purchase.

In 2005 a guy bought an astroid in the game for $100k. He then built a club on it and made back more than $2m in the first year alone by selling memberships.

Hehe, your definition of extremely successfull is a bit stretched. I havent heard about the game for like two years now and Jdoki didnt even knew it was still running. Pretty unusual for something that successfull. The sale from 2005 could have been staged too. They need this kind of advertisement to attract kids and loosers who dont want to study or are too stupid to get a well paid job and think they can become rich through this game. Offcourse im not 100% sure they staged it but several years of watching people and running my own business teached me how things work in this world.
