Yahoo! Games in the News
We've never been, but we're sure that being in prison is not something that anyone would like to experience. For inmates in a labor camp in China, their time in jail meant that they had to play the World of Warcraft, and for them, playing the massive multiplayer online role-playing game is more brutal than it sounds.
According to Mashable, the prisoners at the Jixi labor camp were forced to play the game in a moneymaking scheme, known as "gold farming." Inmates would go online and perform monotonous tasks in the virtual world to make money, which the guards then apparently hawked online for real cash.
It sounds like the perfect punishment for geeks everywhere - what better way to serve your sentence than play games all day? But actually, the task had to be done after a full day of physical toil, which included digging trenches.
Warcraft is a great game, but we'd rather play it in a more comfortable setting, like say, our living rooms, without guards harassing us to get more gold!
