"I think this picture is self-explanatory. $10,200 just to get the game a couple of days early when it’s being released in three days." - FirstDropShow.com (Read full story to see picture)
"Free one-day shipping" Well it can't come tomorrow as it's a Sunday and Monday is when everyone else could get their copy as a lot of postal pre-orders appear a day early. Basically, they just wasted over $10k. With that they could have bought BF3 and an uber-powerful PC to play it on as well as several copies of MW3 and several consoles to play them on. Some people....
No amount of facempalm.jpegs can express my disdain for how stupidly wasteful this auction was. $10,200? I don't want to live on this planet any more.
Gotta be a troll ebay account bidding that up for laughs.
I'll just plug in my comment from the previous similar article. http://n4g.com/news/880226/...
Not everyone wants a BF3 and oh so powerful pc.
Wow, desperate much? There are people selling it here in NYC for $100 and you can get it today. No thanks I'll just wait till Tuesday. Enjoying BF3 right now anyway.
Interesting. Considering I live in NYC :D
Go on craigslist if you are looking for an early purchase :)
Pirating would cost a little bit less.
That's alot for a video game Can't wait a couple days? lol
Hope this is a joke with the owner putting fake bids with another account.
Of course. But it's COD, the playerbase will believe it.
Im sorry but i cant help but feel like these are set up by activison to build hype, $10,000 are you SERIOUS?! You could donate that to charity and make someones life better, you could buy a car, go on a holiday for god's sake! I dont care how rich you are, thats STUPID - I would admit right now, if i was "RICH" and had plenty of money i wouldnt mind spending..£120 pounds to get it a week early ($180 Ish) but it blows my mind people would spend that money on a game to get it a day early :/ @LorianGuy - I got an E-Mail from GAME (UK) that they are not shipping my game till monday but are giving me first class for free so it doesnt break street date, i hope your correct though!
Agreed. No way the few hours of early access are worth more than even $800 of the game, heck, not even $500. But if people are willing to spend this amount of money for such a pathetic reason/cause, then it's just sad and dumb. There's no justification. None.
lol what an idiot. whoever buys this game for that much should be put in special ed. anything more than MAYBE 200 is a total rip-off and even that is too much for a game coming out in less than a week
Over 10k for day early? hahahaa
i got it for 55€ with no need of shipping on that date. i know i should of bought a few...
This is stupid. One of my friends has three copies. The game got leaked early every where. I could buy one right now but I'm getting Skyrim EDIT: http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.... Did you think I was joking? I'm tired of shooters, all the *best* games this year were shooters. It's time for something new (I still have to get Arham City also)
well enjoy your boring game
can you get me a free one
Maybe he is rich. It's his money but I agree this is stupid since it's only gonna be 2 days
Even a multi-billionaire wouldn't do that. It's just a troll account
Obviously people making false bids just playing around.
he would pay 1000000$ for GTAV Pre Alpha !! Thats what happen when the money get in the wrong hand
pfft. those friggin 12 year olds..
what a moron. whos he gonna play it with?
Its his money he can do what he wants with it
Yes you're right. And you can also let people poop in your mouth too because it's your mouth and you can do whatever you want with it right?
My comment is true, it's an non disagreeable undeniable FACT. Even if it's a stupid thing to spend your money on it's still true, its his money and he can spend it on what ever he wants.
There was a bid on ebay that sold mw3 for 14k yesterday
meanwhile in Africa....
So not worth it. God which idiot does that? For a game and that too MW3?
I bet some 8 year old is going to grab his parents' credit card to buy it.
