Sure, it means nothing to me, but someone out there may find it interesting that XBox One is due to launch a new game in which you will be able to upload a custom dragon then rent it out to fellow players. Great, now we’re giving gamers an excuse. I can hear it now, “See, Honey? You were wrong. I don’t need to get off the couch and get a job. I’m making money just sitting here.”
In my experience with online gaming this isn't all that unusual. With online based games its not uncommon to see craig's list adds for people buying and selling accounts to games such as World of Warcraft (WOW). To my knowledge this would be the first such instance of RENTING a character (unless you count people who sell their account and then reset the password to take it back). Its also more than likely the first time of any such transaction has taken place on a console, as selling an account or character in a game would mean having to sell your hard drive and also mostly defeat the purpose of playing the game in the first place.
My sparkly princess dragon is gonna cost you more than a dollar, @Roger Akers.
@3Y3speakL337 I've seen those ads on Craig's List, but this is the first I've heard of renting a character, too. We really are living in a renter's world. It seems like just about EVERYTHING is available for rent now!
