I was just complaining about not having anything on which I wanted to spend Station Cash, and now Sony Computer Entertainment America sends me a note to remind me to… well… please spend some of the funds on my PlayStation 3 account.
Yes, I know, the PlayStation people actually use standard monetary units. But you cannot get it back out again, so your “funds” in whatever currency might as well be Play Station Doubloons.
It would be nice if the two piles of Sony funds were not segregated, but as we saw with DC Universe Online, SCEA wants to protect its users from any interaction with the unwashed PC masses.
I wonder how much unused virtual currency I have sitting around? SOE Station Cash, Play Station Network Funds, Turbine Points, World of Tanks gold, Need for Speed World Speed Boost, EA Play 4 Free Funds, Turbine Points, Runes of Magic Diamonds, Star Trek Online C-Store whatevers…
There might be a virtual fortune out there.
How about you? How much virtual currency do you have sitting around?
