David Story has bought the much coveted Virtual Egg on the game Planet Calypso. It was only available on a special task from Jon "NEVERDIE" Jacobs for $69,696.00 who originally bought the egg from its original owner for just $10,000.
The no lifers always surprise me lol
its his money he can spend it however he wants besides if he has this kind of money to throw on a virtual item im sure its not a big deal for him must be nice to be rich
If he has enough money to buy it then who's the idiot then? It's his money and you never know he could make it back his money IF you read the article.
who really has egg on his face? You or Him? ehehe EGG...on his face...no?
Man needs to get laid. In truth if he can spend that kind of cash on a V-egg then he probably has plenty of golddiggers lined up to get a piece of his nerdie. @BELOW I am sure he will. No way he is the only ubernerd on the internetz with money. jk
You never know, maybe this guys knows something we don't and made a huge profit off it.
A 3D sphere... or a new luxury car THE CHOICE IS YOURS
Dude im 15 years old. I have not made that kind of money because im still in school. Common sense?
Then dude, don't go around calling people a stupid idiot then
scr3w the stock market or real estate! this is real return on investment!
That was my first reaction. Then when I read the article, he seemed like a genius. The guy who sold the egg mortgaged his house to spend $100k on an asteroid, but now that asteroid is worth $1m... I find it funny the price they chose... 69xxx
Yeah, he can waste his money on whatever he wants, but that doesn't make him less of an idiot for buying a 70 thousand dollar video game item.
talk about a big spender
and in the end you must always ask....................why?
He mortgaged his house for a virtual asteroid. That's freaking stupid.
And now he's got a planet which has returned his investment and is now his income. Ballsy but its paid off and now he makes more than either you or me!
wah a douchebag
lol, I would not go as far as calling the guy an idiot. However what I would at least say, is that quite clearly the man has more money than sense.
There was a special on G4 over the summer about the guy who bought the asteroid and started the NEVERDIE night club or whatever. Crazy stuff.
I'm sure if he starts to lose his house, he'll be able to find someone to buy virtual land for multiple hundred thousands of dollars in a heartbeat. Imagine, a hobo with a piece of virtual property "Worth" 1 million dollars.
" its his money he can spend it however he wants besides if he has this kind of money to throw on a virtual item im sure its not a big deal for him must be nice to be rich " And yet we wonder how many suffer in this world because they lack the daily needs in their life.
He got a deal there. Great job whoever you are who bought the egg.
I can't make negative comments to this when I am selling exclusive xbox-live avatar items for $20+ on ebay.
Well shoot if he's got money to blow then that's a heck of a deal! All kidding aside I can't ever imagine spending that kind of money on anything in a virtual world. People will spend their hard earned cash on anything even if it's not real.
never heard of this Calypso thing, but, mortgaging your own house to buy a virtual asteroid???
My wife would KILL me.
she figured out how much profit you'd be making off of it
enjoy your egg lol
This is just insane. What can you do with that Virtual Egg? Anything besides even looking at it?
Something tells me this guy doesn't have a wife
anyone know what this game is like??could be fun.
Everyone should start calling this man Dr.Eggman!
I'm selling MY eggs, any takers?
i'll give you $50,000 for them. I'm kind of on a budget right now, otherwise I'd give $100,000!
I'd buy a dodge viper, or a corvette with that kinda money http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymot... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymot...
he could have AT LEAST spent that money satisfying thousands of poor people in this world today instead of spending it on a virtual egg to just simply look at
He must buy a Life
you are right Juan Roman.
Wow people who spend all this money on virtual games amaze me.
throwing away money on useless items that aren't real = idiot "He must buy a Life" lol impossible he could never afford it.
people spend much more money on that buying stock ( a piece of paper) then the stock goes down and you loose all your money. So in a way it's almost the same.
I suppose Krayzeebone has a bit of a point ha
Humanity never stops to surprise me.
just think how many people will be save from that money!!
anyone else notice the dollar amount, at least the guy has a sence of humor behind that fat wallet
"A fool and his money are soon parted"
i need to start hunting....
Whoever comments about something without knowing the reason behind it or simple understandings are the real idiots. I played this game for a while, I spent about $200 US playing it, and I'll go back eventually. But, I've made over $500 now and have some nice skills that if I put in $50 bucks, I'll make $200. I had a friend mining and he picked up a deposit worth $1,500. Yes, real money. Anyway, it's hard to get started, I wouldn't advise it unless you dig deep into the community and get some loans. -edit- Not to mention that one guy that sold two real life houses to buy a shopping mall in the game. He's now ROLLING in cash from every purchase and the rent from each stall in this mall. Over 200 people. He's making more than a doctor makes a month, by doing absolutely nothing. Hehehe, no maintenance fees, nothing.
Makes me reconsider having a day job. I've never heard anyone who actually knows people playing these games give their opinions on the matter. That does open things up a bit, in considering that perhaps there is some sort of logical explanation for his actions.
What I want to know is what's so special about Calypso???
suicide is a sad thought...
nah, that guy's totally sane.
what game is this?
The 'game' is Planet Calypso, part of the Entropia Universe collection (and only open planet). It's like one of those virtual world/economy games like Second Life and uses CRYEngine2.
To this guy this is an investment, the previous guy both it for 10k and sold it for 70k...the egg in question is about to hatch something...he's betting that whatever hatches will be worth more than 70k.
I wish I was rich enough to play this game. The guy who bought the Crystal palace moon is making like $15,000 a week on people visiting his moon. who says PC gaming is dead. Expensive but not dead.
this guy spent 69,000 bucks on a virtual egg. what more with a REAL egg? XD!!
best omelet ever
more people need that money.
Richest chronic masturbator EVER. Nah but seriously if he's rich then he can back earn his spending. If he is rich, then he needs to learn how to spend money on things that can have a more positive outcome than getting a news headline. Like maybe donating it perhaps?
LOL, f*g. I hope it hatches and a turd pops out.
guy needs a life
of an extreme version of avatar clothes on the 360!!
what a slap in the face to organizations like Help Haiti Now. guy decides to buy virtual egg instead.
Damn i need to join this game and start selling eggs and bread there lol
