This Guy Spent $16,000 On a Virtual Sword Before The Game Was Released

This man is holding an image of a sword that doesn’t exist in real life. In fact, it doesn’t even really exist on a virtual world—he paid $16,000 for a game sword that he can’t play yet.

He got the virtual sword at an auction to celebrate the launch of a highly anticipated game called Age of Wulin. Set in ancient China, the players would be able to ramble through a beautifully detailed world crouching the tiger and hiding the dragon. Other items sold include a sheath for Hook of Departure—sold for $1,600—and a Lordly Spear Sheath—sold for $2,500.

It’s going to be released in China soon, but it will not be available in English until Spring 2012, when all your base are belong to them.
