Strange MMO and more

While browsing the internet at what games are out there, I came across Planet Calypso. This game looks weird, and has scam written all over it so I'm reluctant to check it out. Basically everything you do on the game is done with a real world economy, so you can buy more PEDs (in-game money) with real money, and you can also trade out PEDs for real money. So technically it's possible to make a real profit on this game and become rich.

Still, don't think I'll try it, the phrase "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is" comes to mind! If anybody has played it then please let me know, is it a fun game or will it just eat all my money?

Trailer for those interested: 



Also having been an Eve Online player for many years, they recently released a new (sort of) trailer which I thought was quite cool and so decided to share with you. Watch in HD for the oooo pretty factor.

That game does look pretty sketchy, but I like the concept of being able to trade real world dollars for game dollars. The only problem is I see the possibility of abusing the system or hackers taking advantage of it to an extreme degree...

sounds like second life to me. if the gameplay is good, making money of it is a potential.

Planet Calypso has been around for about 12 years.. It has had several names, the first was project entropia. Its graphics have also evolved as other games have come out. It used to look like shit. It is NOT a scam, I've played it since early release on and off. It is however a money sink hole. How can none of you of heard of it?.. oh wait, let me guess... you're all like 14 or something?
