GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN–(Marketwire - September 18, 2007) - Entropia Universe, the leading virtual worlds platform for interactive entertainment, community building and e-commerce using a real cash economy, boasts the Most Valuable Virtual Items and Real Estate of all the virtual worlds. The new 2008 Guinness World Records book features Club NEVERDIE, an asteroid space resort bought for $100,000 USD by famous gamer Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs as “The Most Expensive Virtual Object.” The asteroid space resort which boasts a nightclub, shopping mall, 1000 apartment complexes, commercial space ship docking, mega sports stadium, and hunting and mining biodomes is the highest grossing privately owned virtual event venue online, estimated to be worth in excess of $1 Million USD if ever placed back on the market.
“The inclusion of the space resort and Entropia Universe in the Guinness World Records book confirms the viability of our real cash economy,” says Marco Behrmann, Chief Information Officer at MindArk PE AB, the development company behind Entropia Universe. “Participants realized early on the enormous potential in Entropia Universe for real commerce. In fact, the space resort had recouped its initial acquisition cost and was operating at a profit after only 8 months, and remains one of the primary event locations in the Entropia Universe.”
