In the world of social gaming, if it don’t make dollars, then it don’t make sense. Sure, you’re having fun moving up the leaderboard. I mean who can resist the thrill of showing the competition why you’re the best there is, was, and ever will be? But lets face it, leveling up and battling are fun, but it’s all about making that paper. Doing shows in Platinum Life brings in a decent amount of green, but there are better ways to make a buck.
Along with the clothing and equipment subcategories in the Shopping tab, there’s the assets link. Similar to other games on the market, assets represent the piece of property that can be purchased in the game. Your first piece of property in the game will most likely be a pool hall. It’s not a prize by any stretch of the imagination. In fact it’s described in the game as “dirty, smoky, and probably a health hazard”.
So why would you want to spend money on something like that? Sure, it’s a little hole in the wall, but it’s also a money maker. The pool hall payouts start at $131. As you continue leveling up in your attempt to achieve music superstardom, you’ll also be able to access better assets. That have better payouts. For instance at level 63, you can purchase your own recording studio with a starting payout of $1236. To monitor how much money your newly acquired investments are bring in, click on the assets link under the Character tab.
To keep things interesting, many of the assets have a window of time where they can be profitable. Once an asset reaches it’s profitability expiration date, the overall payout decreases until reaches zero at which time it expires from your asset inventory and you can start the process of property owner all over again. In addition to a monetary payout, as you gain the ability to purchases some of the flashier pieces of property, there’s also a fame payout that can do wonders for your overall leveling.
The transition from mere hip-hop artist to outright media mogul isn’t easy. It’s a constant balancing act of artistry, business acumen, and just a little bit of luck. Think you have what it takes?Category: Social Gaming | Tags: assets, Platinum Life, Social Gaming
