Previously, it was a $600 purple skirt that was causing us to question the sanity of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players. Now it turns out that $600 isn’t too crazy, when compared to the $1,670 one player spent on the “PLAYERUNKNOWN SET” in-game costume!
The purchase was made on September 1, as shown below.
The PLAYERUNKNOWN SET was first available as a pre-order bonus for PUBG‘s Deluxe Edition. It was stated in the pre-order description that the set would only be available through the Deluxe Edition: “These skins will only be obtainable by pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition. They can later be marketable on the Steam Community Market.”
The Deluxe Edition was priced at $39.99, a mere $10 more than the Standard Edition.
The insanity doesn’t stop there, for the price is actually trending upwards, with the two current sellers asking for above $1,700. Of course, they’ll have to find willing buyers, which could be tricky, as the highest offer is currently $1,257.36.
Those are some expensive in-game threads! What do you make of all this?
