Scion steps into Second Life

Scion builds Scion City in the Second Life virtual world.

When your avatar's feet ache from all that virtual walking around in Second Life, head over to Scion City. At Scion's new promotional area, which launches today at 4:00 p.m. PST, you can buy a Scion xA, xB, or tC for $300 Linden dollars each. I don't play Second Life, and I couldn't find Linden dollars on any of the online currency converters, but it sounds cheap. Players of Second Life will be able to drive their Scions and customize them. At Scion City, players will be able to "experience the Scion lifestyle," according to the Scion press release. If you can run over other players, then it sure sounds like fun.
