Story from the BBC entitled: Gamer buys $26,500 virtual land. Yes, you read that correctly - some guy has spent 13,700 on buying an island that only exists in a role playing game. He's going to make money by renting out lots to other gamers. Apparently economists have worked out that these really large online roleplaying games have a gross economic impact equivalent to the GDP of Namibia. Yes it's wierd, but it does point to an interesting new trend.
