    Default Look at these idiots selling 360 boxes.

    On ebay, these peoble sold empty Xbox 360 boxes for high prices. Either they are fake bidders or inexperienced bidders and not reading throughly. All I know is the whole concept is fucked up either way.

    As dumb as this is...the second auction isn't even for the box....it's for a picture of the box. Where do I sign up to get in on this racket.

    yeah.......i'm still here.

    I can't believe the amount of people paying obscene amounts of money for those things. There are a ton of production problems with them, and if you wait a few months, you'll be able to get one at list price.

    I hear ya on that, I work as a engineer for 7 years and my rule of thumb is wait on rev B.
    rev A always has problems.

    Are people really that stupid? Read the description!

    ****Shipping costs: US $0.99 -- Standard Flat Rate Shipping Service *****(Do you really think you could ship a game system, and an expensive one at that, for $.99?)

    He's covered his ass, tho: he never stated it was the actual syatem:

    ****The XBOX 360 is the hottest holiday item of the year. It is sold out in stores all across the US and the rest of the world. Do yourself a favor and bid for the photo pictured above of the XBOX 360 and accessories. Will ship as soon as possible once payment is recieved!
    This auction is for the photo only.
    Description (revised)

    Item Specifics - Posters
    Subject: Advertising Date of Creation: 1990-Now
    Style: Modern *********************************************

    Posters, people---POSTERS.

    I hope the winning bidder has fun playing with his poster.

    I was checking out some eBay auctions like this the first day the 360 was released. There was one guy that bid on and won about ten or twenty fake auctions. Either he was winning the auctions so no legitimate bidders would get scammed, or he was stupid. Probably the former. He would then leave negative feedback for all the sellers.

    Don't see anything wrong with the first one other than the high price.

    Shouldn't get something off Ebay without insurance.

    I can't believe somebody actually bought that second one. They are
    nuts if they actually pay for it.
