Square Enix Cracks Down On Dragon Quest X Gold Sales


dragWhen you have a popular online game people are going to find a way to sell virtual money. The inevitable cat and mouse game has begun in Dragon Quest X and Square Enix’s first move is banning gold traders.


At the end of October, Square Enix did an investigation and identified accounts selling digital gold. These players had their accounts closed forever and their gold repossessed. Altogether, Square Enix stopped 19.2 million gold from being sold. Huh, I wonder if this is where King Slimes get their gold from…


Gold in Dragon Quest X can be used to purchase weapons and land. You can build your own house and invite friends over.
