A virtual club onboard an asteroid in the online game Entropia Universe has been sold by its owner for a cool $635,000, the BBC reports.

Jacobs made headlines back in 2005 when he purchased the then-unnamed resort for a honking great $100,000, a sale that broke the record for the most expensive virtual purchase ever. (The record keepers clearly never witnessed the under-the-table sale of our godlike World of Warcraft character.)
