Be honest, is anyone really still playing Pokémon GO? After my initial adventures led to a constant grind to reach the insanely high bar of entry to battle Pokémon Gyms, and when I discovered the real cost of all that grinding, I uninstalled the app from my phone. I kept running out of Pokéballs, and without the ability to directly battle my friends, the effort I was taking to go out and get more was all for naught.
If only I lived somewhere with more PokéStops nearby, like say in this rental property up in Queensland that boasts being within 60 metres of one.
Is this the future, where a location’s convenience in relation to augmented reality games is a top selling point ahead of proximity to shops, restaurants and public transport? Are competitive AR games going to turn into a literal class war, since where you live will play a crucial role?

The real shock from reading this for me was that $400 a week can get you a nice, three bedroom house in inner east Brisbane. We are getting shafted here in Melbourne…
