lol, there are a lot of idiots in this world.

Colzer011553d ago

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.

"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.

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.

Einhert1553d ago

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?
