It never ceases to amaze me at the things people will spend real money on in the virtual world. I was miffed when my wife spent money to buy Farmville money but if she bought a pet for her virtual avatar, I'd be really mad.
Xbox 360 fans in the UK can now buy pets for their Xbox avatars. I really just don’t see the point, but I guess if you live for the virtual world and just have some money you don’t need, it might be the thing to do.
You can buy pets like: a cat, dog, horse, pug, snake, fish, or a monkey. If you could buy a Mini Me pet that might be cool. Each pet costs 240 Microsoft points.
