IT USED TO BE A LIRA, BUT NOW IT’S JUST A DONG [Author: Lum the Mad]

Just in time for the UO3D release, Dell has a news story up about eBay and UO (thanks to Crashster for pointing it out). Normally not terribly newsworthy, except for the following quote:

This puts the exchange rate at around 15,000 to 25,000 Ultima Online gold units to the U.S. dollar, making a unit of Ultima gold nearly equal in value to the Vietnamese dong.

Words cannot express how ineffably cool this quote truly is.
