The Planet Calypso Website has a follow-up on the auction of the Crystal Palace Space Station in Planet Calypso, saying this virtual real estate sold for a stunning $330,000 USD. Word is:

FPC congratulate avatar Buzz Erik Lightyear for acquiring the Crystal Palace Space Station for the amount of 3,300,000 PED (USD 330,000).

The price also surpasses the old world record for virtual property previously set with the purchase of Club Neverdie - The Virtual Space Resort and Nightclub, for 1,000,000 PED (USD 100,000).

Ruffiana has it. The majority of MMOs give you access to what you pay for, not the ownership of it.

Think of it more as "I lease my WoW toon" rather than "I own my wow toon". Just like the company that leases the car to person, if that person then uses it for ram raiding the car company can take back the car and refuse to give it back although the person has paid for it for the next month.

Then again you've got that nutter who tries to sue sony etc.. for loss of enjoyment when he gets himself banned. Ahh litigation is fun!
