Who Buys In-Game Property for $335,000? This Guy.

Angela West November 21 Gaming

Think you’re a hardcore gamer? It can be argued that nobody is more hardcore than the guy who spends enough for a decently sized house – on a video game.

Yan Panasjuk, a software engineer living in Boston, recently paid $335,000 real world dollars for a number of properties in the Entropia online gaming universe, including the popular destination Club Neverdie. This busts the previous record held, also within the same game, for a $330,000 purchase of the Crystal Palace Space Station.

Panasjuk intends to maximize his investment, much like a real-world investor, by devoting his time and energy to it almost exclusively. He will, in fact, be spending 40 to 60 hours a week on his new job as manager of the Club Neverdie. Keep in mind that real-world profits are there to be made in this game, so this time investment isn’t quite as ludicrous as it would appear at first blush.

However, what strikes an off note is how much he raves about the game. ““I always try to tell people about Entropia Universe and how much of an amazing and mind blowing experience it can be.” Draw your own conclusions from that one.
