Really who would pay so much for just something that is not real?

One the other hand if you own the PC version you can just torrent all the exclusive DLC that is going for so much on consoles. I know people are against that stuff respect that but its just DLC that was given away. Your not stealing the game.

Daily on e-bay i see pre-order codes go for insane prices! ie; back in May the average selling price for a GOW3 Dominus SKIN was $120 - i witnessed @ least 20 of these sell for $60/80ea. & 2 days ago it was announced that all PS+ subs. will soon be getting it for FREE:) Crazy world!

You prove a very good point the people that buy this really have a problem and do not know how to manage money, are greedy rich, or just plain dumb.

look at people who buy shitty games to boost their gamerscore....(/end faith in humanity)

How many of these bids result in actual sales? I sold the dlc code for Alan wake on eBay, buyer filed a dispute saying the code doesn't work. It's my word against his. Paypal took his side and I got screwed. Can't even leave a negative feedback as a seller.

That sucks for you.
Its riduculous what some people would pay for these non essential items, I really like the fact that Im playing the game without any cheat or help. It feels better that way.
I also played the Whole Demon's souls without reading a wiki. I only watched the reviews and read the manual/.

Indeed a cold & common practice on the-bay.

Seriously? I got the classic pack. You don't really get anything that aids you greatly in any of the DLC packs, other than the canteen with the classic pack, that helps with Hardcore Mode, but not by much.

KillerPwned2914d ago

What does the canteen do? As i am playing the game it tells me my guy takes a sip out of it.

Eiffel2914d ago (Edited 2914d ago )

It gives you a little amount of health with each sip, it's automatic so you can't use it by choice, you can drop it or store it, but it's an aid if your health is low and you can't find a place to rest or aid.

It's handy in dire situations. It's one of your biggest aids in Hardcore Mode.

More about it here.

Got to love the Fallout wiki.

Araceae2914d ago

Do you know where to find a canteen in the game? I didn't get that pre-order code, but am playing on Hardcore and would love to find it.

TANUKI2914d ago (Edited 2914d ago )

Don't most (if not all) of these get released eventually on PSN/Xbox Live? Especially, at a much lower price?

DaBadGuy2914d ago (Edited 2914d ago )

Lol I remember when Transformers were going for hundreds on eBay when War for Cybertron came out.

They were released on Live about a month after launch.

Look, I love Transformers. I've got the DVD seasons of G1, I've got Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee and Starscream busts on my computer desk, and other stuff like that, but man, people really need to chill out. A lot of people got ripped off and are probably pissed.

The argument that you got Demolishor before everyone else doesn't really matter when you got to make rent.

Same thing here people, just wait. Don't get ripped off. You don't need a Vault 13 canteen that badly.
