In-game commerce network PlaySpan will provide a player-to-player virtual goods marketplace for Outspark MMO Fiesta, aiming to give the game's players an "efficient and open market" for virtual goods. Fiesta was originally developed for the Korean market by Korean developer and publisher Ons On Soft. The title is free-to-play and already allows players to purchase premium in-game items like clothing, pets, power-ups and other accessories to customize their character from the publisher; now players are to be able to buy and sell virtual items from each other. There has been no announcement from Outspark on whether they will take a "cut" of proceeds in the way that a real-world trading site such as eBay does. “As a game portal, publisher and distributor, Outspark delivers a community- driven, online gaming destination for our nearly 3 million users,” said Susan Choe, Founder & CEO of Outspark. "PlaySpan’s in-game technology and player-to-player micro-transaction network provides an easy to use, secure experience that will make it possible for our users to enjoy an open market filled with the hundreds of unique virtual items available in Fiesta."
