Kim Kardashian video game taking in big bucks

Would you spend real money to style a character in a video game? That’s what the makers of the new “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” game are  banking on.

The game has been out since since June 25th. It makes a profit of $700,000 a day!

It’s free to download, but players spend real money on virtual clothes, hairstyles, and energy boosts.

The makers say the more your character does, the more quickly you move from an E-list celebrity to an A-list celebrity, which is the purpose of the game.

If the trend in sales continues, the game will make about $200,000,000 in its first year.
