ebay.com had Modern Warfare 3 for Xbox 360. Yesterday an auction was ended by the successful bidding of $1,725 US Dollars. Check the story!
And watch him get the game on release date...........LMFAO!
Pretty sad. You know how much Mickey D's you can buy with that kind of money?
well he can trade it in at gamestop for $30 if he doesn't like the game
Or $8 cash.
really? a mw3 torrent came out 2 days ago, should just pirate it if you really can't wait. pirating fines might be more than $1725 though, maybe. I wouldn't know cause I've never pirated a game/been caught.
crXss First time offenders get a warning, I believe you get 2-3 warnings by your ISP for downloading illegal stuff, and then they will charge you a fine.
I've seen many desperate fans do some stupid things but this is just ridiculous.
you mean like this: http://www.digitalbattle.co... Sometimes people will pay through the nose to be better than the next guy.
But then again everyone has their own thing.I don't blame him,if you have the money to blow,spend it however you like,it's YOUR money.
Just wait. one day some desperate fan will offer sex or something just so they can play the game before it comes out. lol
@cannon8800 Already been done (not quite with a video game though): http://news.cnet.com/8301-1...
He plays early... and gets his console banned.
He plays the multiplayer early. But then when he logs on he realises no one else is playing because no one else has the game
No, activision has been giving people copies of the game early.
Not if they used Fed Ex.....then he will get the game a day after release day and the disc will be damaged.
i know the seller is happy, he probably bought a few more copies of the game to see if any more other idiots will buy it around that price
Under no circumstances can Modern Warfare 3 be worth $1,725 or any other video game for that matter of fact. What makes this even more ridiculous is it's just 4 stinkin' days! I would've understood if this was for something rare and hard to find (like a brand new backwards compatible launch PS3 under $500). But this is only for a freaking 96 hour headstart? I'm sorry but that's just naive and DUMB. Within 4 days millions will have the same copy as his. 4 day headstart doesn't make it any special at all. People will rub it in his face that all they had to do was wait for 96 hours, and get the same copy for a whooping $1665 less!
Not only that... but is the mp even up yet? If so then good luck finding anyone else to play with. (i got U3 early 5 days early...along with many others, and was not able to find an mp game for the life of me.) And If not then I feel sorry he paid that much just for an early head start on what I expect to be not a great story. (i have personally disliked all the MW stories.)
@Spenok you do realize that you couldn't find a game was because people where playing the uncharted 3 MP, but they where playing the subway one
Wow. They'res another copy up. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cal...
$10,000 is the current bid?! WTF is wrong with people?! Seriously a case of more money than common sense!
I know its the bidder's money but that to me is just downright immoral. Imagine how many people in need he/she could help with those $ 10.000 and all for the sake of playing a game a few days early.
that would sooo hurt, getting the game a day after cuz of bad weather. lol....
lol, that be messed up! Who knows, that might actually happen.
Wow,talk about being desperate what does he win for having it early??I bet the seller is probably laughing his @$$ off at this retard he couldn't wait 4 more days for it.
the bragging rights for having it first and the claim to fame on the internet for everyone to poke fun at.
The two people who disagreed are either retarded or they have lost the sense of the ridiculous.
yep you've lost it for sure.
no it's actually the guy who bought it making many accounts because he realized he's an idiot.
4 day head start with nobody to play with/against.
MS gave the green light to early play. http://n4g.com/news/879689/...
That's not what I mean. How many people do you think are going to have this game before Monday? That's even assuming the package arrives before then.
Not anymore. http://n4g.com/news/880338/...
I usually get my games early and I haven't been banned, but all it takes is 1 game I guess so maybe I just won't log into my account this time. I'm sure the single player will keep me busy for a few days; don't really care for multiplayer anyway.
U forgot the ones that pirated it
Er... surely by the time it arrives it will be either the day of release or the day after release?
And if he is seen online with it by an admin he will loose his account.
MP servers just went online last night and I bought a legitimate copy from a retailer with active SKUs that shipped from Activision, ergo it's their fault the copies were sold, not mine or the retailer. There have been two 20 MB patches the last 2 days respectively (v1.02 now)
^Lucky, and I bet you didn't have to pay $1,725 for your copy either. Lol
And yes it didn't cost me $1700, only $57.06 w/ employee discount :) Activision was SO pissed at us they sent us another 120 copies since we sold all 80 wednesday. lol
What store do you work at?
@CBaoth Actually, if your store isn't careful they can receive punitive action such as fines and the like for breaking the street date.
This has got to be one of the greatest examples yet of really not giving a F**K what others think of you.
With that money, he could have bought a good PC (individual parts), an Xbox 360, a PS3, and 3 copies of MW3 for each of those platforms. Xbox 360 - $299.99 PS3 - $249.99 MW3 Hardened Edition, $80 x3 for each platform - $240 $935 left to buy a good gaming rig.
If the guy can afford this kind of money for a headstart, what makes you think he doesn't have all those already? Or maybe he's just an idiot, we will never know
I vote idiot. I can afford to spend that kind of money on a whim and I wouldn't notice at all, but if I chose to spend my money in such a foolish way then I would fully expect to be called an idiot or worse, and they would be right.
This isn't the craziest thing I've seen in the gaming community, people pay 10,000 dollars for jean pants just for 1 day events lol.
Ugh, I find those kind of people to be disgusting. It's really yucky.
what a loser
He could have gotten a gaming PC that can run any game on max
Might be EA trying to get some inside info. :P
To some people who has the money, all it matters is able to brag he's the 1st. Unless he's really good and keeps it up, head start doesn't mean much after a few days later.
Good for him.
I will lol hard if there's a problem with his package and he gets it until after release date xD
*Karma adjusts the sniper scope*
The seller has like 5 more copies up for sale, but he isn't looking for any realistic price.
Hell, he don't have to. Any "realistic price" or beyond has come from this dude alone. I seriously doubt that even he thought he could pull this off. Kudos to the seller.
Or pirate it (30$) and ban an xbox (200$), which is kinda cheaper.
Forget the moron that paid that much...lets applaud the seller for taking advantage of this dude
What a moron.
Damn I wish I was the seller, I would love that dumb ass so much. I`am gonna try to always get a copy early now and sell it on ebay.
Time's running out, better hurry!
What a idiot!!!!
If you have $1,725 to spend, don't blow it for MW3 just to have it ahead. I mean there are so many other games coming out and its MW3!?!?
That's it. I don't want to live in this planet anymore.
lets live in mars or something
Packing my bags right now.
I'm in. Going to pick up my dog, meet you at the launch.
So the lesson here is you dnt blow 1725 bucks on a game just to play it early.
