RedCentric Compares Our Virtual to Our Real Worlds

Posted Mar 10, 2014 by Suzie Ford

RedCentric Compares Our Virtual to Our Real Worlds

RedCentric has an interesting new site for fans of the MMO genre. On it, readers can take a look at comparative stats between three of the biggest MMOs as compared to the real world. The team has gathered information about Second Life, EVE Online and World of Warcraft. 

For instance:

  • £1 in the real world is worth the equivalent of 50,822,466 ISK in EVE Online.

  • World of Warcraft uses 1.3 petabytes (1.3 million GB) of storage to maintain the game. That's 2,760 500GB hard drives, and similar to the storage occupied by every photo on Facebook (1.5PB).

  • Between 2006 and 2011, global internet usage doubled in growth - in the same timeframe, Second Life saw a 4000% increase in users.
