PS3 for 99 cents
Quote:
For those of you angered by people queuing up for the Playstation 3 and then selling it on for a profit I bring you a rather entertaining yarn.

It starts with a young man from Boston, who waited in his local BestBuy line for 40 hours to ensure he got hold of his Playstation 3 come release day. Once he secured his purchase he quickly ran home and jumped on eBay. So desperate was he to make his Playstation 3 stand out form the crowd on the auction floor he had also bought a whole host of games, an extra controller as well as a free 2 year warranty worth $100. The package he offered looked pretty tasty.

It really was looking good for ebayer kusakay - 26 positive feedbacks and the chance to earn an absolute fortune, all just for standing in a queue for 40 hours. However, kusakay made a mistake and instead of putting the Playstation 3 up for auction for $0.99 he clicked the 'buy it now' button. As would be imagined the kit, worth over $1,000, was swiftly snapped up by a buyer called geeqnastie. All for less than a measly dollar.

If this isn't a hoax then no doubt the Playstation 3 will actually end up 'stolen' before it can be posted when the fool realises his mistake. Either way it just highlights what stupidity/lack of sleep can actually do to you. You have been warned.

I wish I'd seen that, it would have been an instant click on the Buy It Now

He won't let it go for that price. Might as well just accept the neg feedback
