I just learned today that people are paying money for other people's accounts in online games such as EverQuest, EQ II, World of Warcraft, D&D Online, Final Fantasy XI, Lineage II, RF Online, etc. Some of the accounts I looked at for EverQuest II were selling for as much as $699. The cheapest account I saw was $143. Here is a company that buys and sells accounts: http://www.ige.com/ From http://www.ige.com/about : "It’s Big Business Analysts estimate the 2005 marketplace for virtual assets in MMOGs is approaching $900 million. Some experts believe that the market for virtual assets will overcome the primary market—projected to reach $7 billion by 2009—within the next few years." Has anyone here ever bought or sold an account in this fashion? Is it legitimate, and if so, can you tell me what you think/thought about the whole experience? Do you think that someone with a lot of time on their hands and a love of gaming could actually make a living off of this?
