GOTEBORG, Sweden, December 3, 2010 - First Planet Company, developer and publisher of Planet Calypso, the
oldest planet in the Massively Multiplayer Online Game Entropia Universe,
announced today the auction of the Medusa's Head islands on Planet Calypso.
This huge sale will allow one player to acquire the deed to the largest
virtual property ever sold and potentially one of the most lucrative in
Medusa's Head is the fourth major property opportunity offered on Planet
Calypso. This property will be available for virtual viewing starting on
December 7th to anyone playing the game and to all potential buyers that wish
to visit for their first time. The auction will begin on December 13th and
anyone with money in their account can bid on the property. There is no

investors bidding over $50,000.00 USD. For more information on how to bid

The Medusa's Head islands encompass 8 different revenue generating land
areas. There are three on the main island and five on surrounding smaller
islands. The property will also come with 2 unique creatures which will be of
interest to hunters from around the planet. Additionally there will be a
number of other indigenous species, as well as mining, retail and residential
assets. A teleportation system is included to make travel easy, although
anyone can get there by air or boat.
Planet Calypso recently saw a smaller asteroid with shops, hunting,
mining and a nightclub sell for $635,000.00 USD; it was originally bought for
$100,000.00 USD in 2005. Operating profitably from day one the resort
recouped the $100,000.00 USD in mining/hunting rights alone in its first
eight months and was previously in the Guinness World Records book as the
most valuable virtual item. The auction of this attractive virtual property
is expected to generate a high level of investment interest.
