Discussion in 'Entropia Universe in the Press' started by EP-Newsbot, Dec 3, 2010.

  1. The largest virtual property sale ever offered begins soon

    GOTEBORG, Sweden, Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- First Planet Company, developer and publisher of Planet Calypso, the oldest planet in the Massively Multiplayer Online Game Entropia Universe, announced today the auction of the Medusa's Head islands on Planet Calypso. This huge sale will allow one player to acquire the deed to the largest virtual property ever sold and potentially one of the most lucrative in existence.
    Medusa's Head is the fourth major property opportunity offered on Planet Calypso. This property will be available for virtual viewing starting on December 7th to anyone playing the game and to all potential buyers that wish to visit for their first time. The auction will begin on December 13th and anyone with money in their account can bid on the property. There is no minimum and the normal 1% withdrawal fee will be waived for potential investors bidding over $50,000.00 USD. For more information on how to bid please go to www.planetcalypso.com/planet-calypso/medusa.
    The Medusa's Head islands encompass 8 different revenue generating land areas. There are three on the main island and five on surrounding smaller islands. The property will also come with 2 unique creatures which will be of interest to hunters from around the planet. Additionally there will be a number of other indigenous species, as well as mining, retail and residential assets. A teleportation system is included to make travel easy, although anyone can get there by air or boat.
    Planet Calypso recently saw a smaller asteroid with shops, hunting, mining and a nightclub sell for $635,000.00 USD; it was originally bought for $100,000.00 USD in 2005. Operating profitably from day one the resort recouped the $100,000.00 USD in mining/hunting rights alone in its first eight months and was previously in the Guinness World Records book as the most valuable virtual item. The auction of this attractive virtual property is expected to generate a high level of investment interest.

    can't say I'm surprised at this popping up. Not trying to be negative here but the one thing that jumped out at me was that the shops and apartments are going to be RENT FREE. Does this mean that FPC are going to take the rent off the other shops and apartments around Calypso? it should because otherwise its discriminating against the people that own shops around the rest of the planet.

    Kay Jones who?

    not necessarily. the missing rent would just be added to the sales price, i.e.
    - shop with rent: nk ped
    - shop without rent: nk ped + x years worth of rent
    or something like that

    Interesting point, but can you honestly see that happening? The rent goes to FPC (or is it MA?) so i can't see the landowner putting the cost of rent he/she doesn't get anyway on to the price...people simply won't buy them if they are overpriced...and we both know what the community is like with pricing.
  6. Kay Jones

    Kay Jones who?

    he may not get the rent, but the buyer wont have to pay it, that's the important part. not taking advantage of that would be stupid imo.

    how the community reacts to pricing, I have no idea. I'm not even 3 months old ;)
