Purchases in online games made a staggering $117 billion last year. In fact, the video games industry is bigger than movies and US sports combined. Not bad for a hobby that started out with a few kids at arcades!
But the obvious question remains: can the players take part in it?
Well, it turns out they can. Thanks to the magic of the internet, there’s plenty of ways for players to buy, sell, and trade all sorts of items and in-game currency they’ve earned in online games.
Let’s take a look at a few of them!
You can! There are plenty of sites out there that will let you trade in-game items with other players. What’s more, they’re rarely restricted to a single game.
That means you can often use the same site to trade sellable items in games ranging from Team Fortress 2 to Neverwinter to RuneScape. In fact, there are even sites that let you trade items from one game for stuff from another.
Any item you can trade in-game is usually on offer. Not only weapons and armor, but elixirs, skins, consumables and mounts can usually be found for trade.
Because, really, who wants to get a sword when you can get a cute new dog instead?
If you’d rather just get a leg-up in a new game, or don’t have anything you want to trade, you can always use real money. That’s pretty exciting, since it lets people turn the hours they’ve poured into their favorite games into real value!
After all, it’s not uncommon for dedicated gamers to pour hundreds of hours into their favorite MMOs. Why not get a tangible reward for all that effort?
But what if you don’t have any super-fancy sellable items? Or if you just want something a bit more flexible than a new greatsword or suit of armor?
Well, there are lots of sites that specialize in trading in-game currency. Actually, buying and selling game currency might be even more lucrative than trading items.
After all, why trade for an item when you could trade for the money to buy it?
That’s why there’s such a proliferation of sites that focus on selling in-game currency to dedicated players. And just like with those in-game items, the range of games on offer is incredibly vast. Offerings range from Final Fantasy XIV Gil to 2007 RS Gold for Sale.
Giving yourself a little boost by buying in-game currency can be an excellent way to earn a head start in a new MMO.
These days, people have less and less time to dedicate to their most beloved games. That’s why it can be so useful to save time by trading in-game currency and items. It lets people without time keep up, and those who have dedicated hundreds of hours to an MMO see some return on that investment.
