NCsoft unveils new microtransaction system

NCsoft has unveiled NCcoin, a system that uses real-world money to purchase in-game items

NCsoft has unveiled a new micro-transaction system called NCcoin to allow customers to use real-world money to purchase in-game items and upgrades.

"NCsoft's goal is to bring more and more people into the online gaming market, and part of achieving that goal is to continue to diversify how customers can pay and play," said Chris Chung, NCsoft North America's president.

"This system will offer our customers much greater flexibility and convenience in paying for content. Micro-transactions are a growing part of the online gaming industry and NCcoin will allow us to support micro-transaction based games efficiently, allowing developers and players to quickly enjoy the benefits of those systems.

"We will soon be rolling out more contents that leverage the flexibility of NCcoin."

NCcoin will debut in Exteel and is expected to be incorporated globally into many of NCsoft's existing and upcoming games.

NCcoin is currently available in 100, 500, 1000 and 2000 denominations for USD 1, 5, 10 and 20 amounts, respectively.
