Looks like someone has set up a load of fake accounts called bidder and is bidding all the wii prices thru the roof!

One was bid up to over a grand this morning.
Looks like a lot of people selling wii's on ebay are going to be mighty cheesed off today.:eek:

LOL.... Its a new eBay feature to stop bidders being spammed. User id is cloaked till the end of the auction.

It's a new eBay 'feature' that is supposed to protect peoples' identities. Once an item goes above a certain amount (£100, I think), it says "BidderN". Supposedly this is to stop the bidders being contacted by alternative sellers of the same item and doing a deal without an eBay listing.

Ah right, that's a new one on me. Some people are paying stupid prices for the wii at the moment.

Just been checking out eBay, and several Wii's failed to meet their reserve price, and overall price level seems to be down a bit. I guess as more stories emerge of stores having stock this weekend (TRU, etc.), prices might drop even further.

All the one's I've been 'watching' are going for around the £300 mark +- £25. That's for the £179 bundle...
