Gamers all over the world have demonstrated their excitement and passion for all things Halo as the Konsoles for Kids charity auction for the "Halo 3" Xbox 360 console has seen bidding on eBay skyrocket to over $21,000.
Anything for kids.
I've bought a $500 signed skateboard from the same foundation.
If you can give then give.
If it helps out other people then these types of auctions are good things, unlike the scalpers who were trying to profit when the original 360 was released. They were only interested in helping themselves, whereas here people are trying to help others.
Another good thing about these auctions is that you get something unique that you can show off to people and which itself may go up in price in the long term, so it really is a win-win situation.
Stupid price to pay for 360 but great money for the charity! Good thing.
How pissed would the winner be if he got it home, turned it on and he got 3 flashing red lights??? Ha ha ha!
waiting for that
If you can afford to drop $21,000 on anything, then chances are that this person wouldn't need to set it up and use it. Obviously a collector's item.
BOOYAH?!?! Let battle commence.
-The system managed to work for longer then 3 months
My X360 died 2 weeks ago, and MS was going to charge me £85 for a repair! Stupid, especially seeing as it's there fault that it happens!!
I sent it away to someone else who charged me £50 and put extra fans inside to keep it cool! Sounds like an aeroplane, but it will work for a little while longer!
That's awesome; I didn't realize M$ actually did that for the kids. The sad thing is - fanboys will still find some smart arse comment to say;)
I think a chuck norris 360 would've sold for more. one side his face, the other side all the chuck norris facts, and signed by chuck norris.
That xbox breaking up is so old and used. Can't PS3 fangirls come up with anything better?
I still got my 2005 version of 360 and works like a charm, but hey I'm not a kid with short temper and a hammer.
Same with mine, got mine at launch and works fine
Launch Day 360 and Launch Day 360 Elite....all working just fine.
The only time I've seen red lights on any XBOX was my modded original XBOX, which happened after a Golden Retriever stepped on the disc drive. :(
360 is working fine.
That's what I though guys. Launch console, 2005 made, working like a dream until 2 weeks ago.
You think your invincible to the red lights, but your not. It happens when you least expect it! Watch out!
well same thing with your PS3, someday in the future it will break up
this aint even the real game ? Just ya all wait till the game itselt is released . IT will be the spiderman movie of the gaming world.
It was just xbox360 with custom Halo3 decoration. Hand painted.
but it was signed by the developers though. It will be an honor to have something like this in your room. Having one of the best dev team sign your console.
are getting old...quit it already, damn toddlers. red light this, red light that, I'm on my 4th Xbox this, and that, give it up.
This was for a good cause, and thats a good amount of money raised, which ever console that took part of.
Ok that's it.
My sentiment exactly.
Although there are people who have money to pay for items such as these lets not forget some people who have no lives purposley overbid then not pay just to be bastards with no lives. I remember seeing ps3 reaching 1 million on release date. Lets hope people recognize this is for charity and dont screw around.
We all know the PS3 couldn't make this much money even if it had a vigina (remember after the Holiday season when no one wanted the PS3) Oh wait its still like that.
if i recall an article was released about the only masarati red ps3 sellin for around £15,000 sterling.
My launch 360 works fine and it will be 2 years this november
And I purchase the 6 in 2005. I haven't had any problems and I get a lot of use out of them. Every weekend I have gaming sessions with family and friends. All nighters....Maybe I'm just lucky.
But once again. Who buys a 300 plus piece of electronics and doesn't get the extended warranty?
I do for my cam corder, HD dvd player, Ps3, HD tvs, 360's, Sterio equipment, speakers, ect....
Its common sense. And for 50 dollars you get a 2 year warranty on top of the 1 year warranty that comes with the 360. Thats 3 years your covered free of charge.
My xbox 360 worked fine until i sold it. I don't even like the console. It is the noisiest console ever. PS3 is not.
