That is much better than I thought. Good gravy, the amount of energy expended to create that many. I wonder how much energy storage takes and how long they've managed to contain that many for.

That does mention how it's not feasible to store much antimatter using that technique.
Even its suggested method for storing neutral anti-particles works for mere seconds. Amazing of course, in the grand scheme of things, but not useful for gaming.
