A desperate gamer purchased the rights to a pre-ordered Playstation 4 console for $9,999.99 via eBay with free shipping on Sunday, according to Hot Hardware.
lol, there are a lot of idiots in this world.
like the one who believe it actually happened
Or Misleading Headlines. Headline should be "PS4 goes for 10K to benefit charity." Not as trolling that way since the story is about a guy who is donating most of the money to Make A Wish and the rest for the "baby on the way."
At least he got free shipping.
"to benefit charity" my @55. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SON... "10% of the final sale price will support Make-A-Wish Foundation" 10%. "I also am donating a large percent to the make a wish foundation,." BS, 10% while you pocket 9k (that won't be paid, because it's very likely a 0 feedback buyer). Gotta love the BS sob story too: "MY WIFE AND I ARE GOING THROUGH A VERY TOUGH TIME AND NEED FINANCIAL HELP. WE HAVE OUR FIRST BABY ON THE WAY AND ARE VERY EXCITED BUT NEED HELP." I need so much financial help that I went out and paid $400 on an unnecessary item that I could pedal on eBay.
Its not far out there enough to say it likely didnt happen. Someone bought a copy Mass Effect 3 that BioWare hooked to balloons on ebay before release for $400 USD.... the sunday before release. People will pay a lot for the dumbest things. I can list countless examples lol.
Could be fake.
or rich people
Rich people aren't that smart sometimes.
I bet it's fake.
Either fake or a publicity stunt like the $5000 PS2 eBay sale.
I've actually seen a few of these on eBay it's hard to say if they are real or not I had them bookmarked but they don't work now. I really don't know why someone would pay that much they need to learn to be patient!
lel. pitiful humans you cant be THIS stupid.
Yeah sure enough, just had a look at the UK marketplace on Ebay and the prices are shafted pretty high but only by £100 or so. There is nothing ridiculous like this on there though..... If it is true would it really hurt that much to wait an extra month or so?
Wow, I'm pretty sure you can still preorder them from Best Buy
Or Wal-Mart. http://www.walmart.com/ip/P... Clearly states "The PS4 console will ship free on launch date this holiday."
......or they could've just waited for GameStop to e-mail them saying they have more pre-orders in for ps4
10K nice deal tbh bcoz the PS4 is a 13k high end gaming pc
What was his feedback score? Probably 0.
What a douche..
This is weird to find out from a Kpop related site. Just saying.
it boggles the mind when i read articles like these. i mean how can you purchase a 399 console for 10k when there a places that are still taking pre-orders edit: it comes with free shipping LOLZ
Well, the free shipping does make it more enticing /s
no matter how much income I get, I will never pay a ps4 for 10g. lucky I preorder it for $399.
He could have just withdrawn his bid for all we know
The auction might of ended at 10000 bur that doesn't mean it was paid for. Honestly I would find it funny if there are a few guys just bidding on ps4s to make them at prices no one will buy, forcing the scalpers to waste their time
What a moron, If they're sold out in US just pre-order from a UK retailer, wait an extra week to save over 9,500 dollars
Lol! People siece to amaze me. *i don't know if I spelt siece right.
It's 'cease' dude, and it should be 'never cease' when used in the context of your sentence. Apparently, according to the Urban dictionary siece means - 1. Siece A female member of a family that is taken in by her parent's parents permanently. "My niece is living with my mom and dad" "Oh. So what is she to you now?" "She's my Siece" Lol.
This HAS to be fake. What idiot would pay that much money for the PS4? Don't get the wrong idea, I'm not trying to diss the PS4, but the it gets released at $399 just months from now. Just freaking wait. Honestly...
I know! Like why would you pay that?!
What a moron!!
A few of these are selling less than the actual cost plus tax LOL
I still say fake.My guess is a couple of friends trying to make the PS4 into something someone has to have since Xbox One pre orders are sold out and PS4 are still available.Why would anyone pay $10,000 when walmart,amazon,best buy and a bunch of other retailers still have them for pre order?Yea sorry but this is a fail
Joke post of the year. hahaha!
Xbox pre orders are only sold out because they gave ridiculously low numbers to stores. My local gamestop only has 10 Xboxs, and since the PS4 pre order cap was lifted for a month, I'm sure there is a good 50+ PS4's. PS4 sold out at Gamestop before Xbox anyway.
I might just put my preorder up on ebay now, damn! Agreed though prob fake, or one very very sad man really likes video games.
a very misleading post...
