A peek into the world of goldfarming

There's been no shortage of talk about "Goldfarming" in MMO's over the past year. The term refers to the practice of professionally playing an MMO, usually in an emerging market country like China, to develop characters & items for sale to other players in exchange for real world currency.

Anyhow, if you are like me and have trouble wrapping your head around the reality of it, check this out: A preview video clip from an upcoming documentary about Goldfarming, which includes interviews with the Chinese 'farmers' and the people that run the companies that employ them. Wow.

Via TerraNova.
