Here's a colorful article from the weekly Cleveland Scene about a guy with what sounds like a very successful outfit — he sells video game goods to buyers in the real world.
"It's huge business," says Chris Kramer, a spokesman for Sony, which created the popular MMORPGs Everquest and Star Wars Galaxy."We've seen the secondary market grow from like a couple guys sellingtheir characters on eBay to what's become like a $200 million salesmarket."
I've read other articles about this trend in recent years, including this one by my friend Rick Marshall at Metroland in Albany. I've tried to find somebody doing this in Vermont, with no luck. Anybody got any examples?
