    ... like these people:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1573216152

    How much are they prepared to pay?? :eek: It's just plain pathetic that many people don't just use their head and do a quick search for a few online suppliers, most of whom would ship earlier than the release date anyway. For gawd's sake, it's released on 4/11/02!!!!!

    Might just have to start putting up my own pre-orders if there really are that many thick people around - no doubt I'll be competing with Juboy and Groundy if I do :p

    Why bother? We need people like that so we can make money :D They're also legally bound to their bid, so we shouldn't interfere ;)

    However, the seller is naughty as they state in their auction:

    when we all know it's available already - as Confucius has proven.

    i take it then the seller is simply going to buy this when it is released for about £15 then sell it for £31 to this complete muppet

    the bidder obviously has access to the internet, how can someone so stupid work out how to turn the computer on?

    Fawlty towers is also there currently for £23.99

    It is £17.99 from Play??????????????

    I think you could make a lot of money picking stuff up in the sales and selling it on ebay

    But of course ;) In fact, it's highly likely that they'll just order it from Play and stick the bidders address down so it gets sent directly to the bidder, thus saving a few pence on postage.

    so basically, you just look for big new releases.......write a bit that suggests you will get it early and it willbe tough to get, then sel it for an extortionate price to some melon head on ebay. I would feel quite bad doing that.......

    No - that's the beauty of it! It's an auction, so you just have to pick a starting price (say £5) and the morons do the rest themselves and push the price up to ridiculous levels! :D

    So no guilt involved - it's all entirely self-inflicted ;)
