Team Fortress 2 gets $100 wedding rings

Team Fortress 2 diamonds

The Something Special for Someone Special item was in a secret update back in December, but you can now buy it. For a hundred dollars. “It’s ring-shaped, it’s gift-wrapped, it’s basically useless, and it’s really expensive,” say Valve. “In short, it’s the most accurate simulation of an actual Valentine’s Day gift ever made available to the public.”

The ring will let you “marry” another player in the middle of a fire fight. You have to gift the item to make a proposal. If they accept, a big trumpeting message will tell everyone that you’re in wuv, and you and your new partner will get matching diamond bands that you can “wear in the rain while you smooch up a storm.”

That sure is a lot of bucks for a virtual band, but isn’t the gift of a ring all about the gesture rather than the bling? Would you pay a hundred dollars for a TF2 item?
