Bigpoint have spoken about selling in-game items to their DarkOrbit MMO players that give them an advantage in the game if they can pay for it with real money, cutting out grinding time for immediate reward, optional, of course.

Makes sense if someone just wants to play it that way, but a new addition has taken that further, with the new rare, ?1000 space drone.  That?s right, pay real money and get it.  How successful was this, though?  2000 people bought it in four days, making the developers ?2 million richer.  Not a bad tactic to use if people are willing.
