I have never before been privy to witness such a widespread epidemic of complete and utter stupidity as I have borne witness to in the last week on eBay.
People are actually stupid enough to pay close to double or higher than retail prices just to get an xbox 360 when they first come out. WTF are they smokin?! The highest I saw one go for was around $1,025.00. So do you think you got your money’s worth?
Not a chance.
This is a perfect example of the kind of lunacy that makes eBay a phenomenon. The fact that you can sell something for 2 or 3 times what you can get it for in the store defies common logic. It’s a gaming console. One that has issues too. For starters, it seems to be more unstable than Windows 95 running on an Acer laptop. There are dozens of reports all of the web about the xbox 360 crashing. There are also reports that the DVD player is not up to snuff – at least as far as it being HD capable.
The news isn’t all bad though, here is an excellent and thorough review of the console. I will still strongly consider purchasing one of these high-tech wonders of consumerism – just not tomorrow – or before the new year at all actually. I’m going to wait and see how it all shakes out – maybe, even though Sony seems to have completely mad, the PS3 will be the way to go.
Dunno. But in true Microsoft fashion – they ship another product seemingly before it is ready. Way to go Bill. I have to give them props though. They have built enough fervor and anticipation around this damn thing that people have lost complete control of their mental processes and seem to be throwing money at it. Lots of money. Just so little Billy, or big Billy for that matter, can be the first on their geek-laden block to plug it in and waste some baddies…
