BRITONS desperate to own homes are increasingly opting to live in Playstation games.
With consoles now offering virtual reality add-ons, first-time buyers are purchasing homes in magical realms for as little as 3,000 gold pieces.
Trainee solicitor Tom Logan said: Its hard to find a two-bedroom flat in London for less than £300k, so it made perfect sense to buy in the land of Nazgor, located in the Playstation 4 game Age of the Dragon Kings.
After doing basic quests like killing local bandits, wed earned enough gold pieces to buy a woodland hovel. Its pretty basic and doesnt have a toilet for some reason, but it does have plenty of storage space for weapons and armour.
Living in a Tolkienesque place does mean we spend a lot of time fending off the orcs and the undead, but it’s less dangerous than a lot of Zone 5 places.”
His partner Nikki Hollis, said: Facilities are excellent, with a tavern, an armourer and a magic potions shop all in close walking distance. However I am having a real struggle finding a decent patisserie or a hairdresser.
Hollis admitted that living in a fantasy role-playing game had its own pressures, such as finding time between quests to hold down a job in the real world to pay for electricity for the games console.
She added: If we have kids, there are plenty of places at the local Mages Guild, which is like a free school but less eccentric.”
