New MMORPG.com Second Life Correspondent David Greene writes this look at land prices in Linden Labs' Second Life
Second Life is a pinnacle of social gaming today. In October of 2008 Linden Labs announced that they would be raising the prices of their privately owned virtual areas know as sims, or more specifically the sims known as Open-Space.
An OpenSpace is a type of private island that Linden Labs made available for light use countryside or ocean. The design team at Linden Labs figured that if Governor Linden can have ocean and green spaces, they should also let private estate owners do the same.
