With version 0.56 and its summer events, Nexon released another NX item… with the potential to crash MapleStory’s economy: the Bronze Sack. Sold for 500 NX in the Cash Shop, the Bronze Sack contains 1 million mesos at the disposal of the buyer. Says Nexon:
Bronze Sack of Mesos(1million mesos) will be sold at Cash Shop for 2 weeks! (6/19 ~ 7/2) We will be testing out how it is affecting in-game economy and gather user feedbacks. Please feel free to give us feedback!!
Nexon may have truly meant it as an experiment, but during that 2-week period, a lot could happen. Most likely prices will inflate radically because of the extra availability of money, severely inconveniencing the majority of MapleStory’s players, who are non-NX’ers. This is probably one of the biggest benefits Nexon’s ever given to its paying community, and Nexon’s probably hoping to get more people hooked on NX. It may very well prove to be one of Nexon’s most profitable and most controversial commercial ventures.
