    I thought I'd start a thread for all the really outlandish things found on the net that are Xbox 360 related (sales, miss quotes, stupid reviews, animations etc) :-

    Official Xbox 360 magazine Issue 1 on eBay here. Buy it now price = £27.50 :eek: It's still on sale in my local WHS at cover price!

    What else have you lot seen that made you gawk or chuckle?

    I sent this chancer a message via E-bay:

    Why is this magazine so expensive, and indeed how is it 'rare', given that this magazine is still in the newsagents at this very moment, and anyone with half a brain can buy it for a fiver rather than paying you an exorbitant amount?

    And here is his response:

    its worth a try it made you look
    Many Thanks Alan..

    --------------------------------------------

    To be honest I wouldn't call this guy a scum-bag - far from it - If anyone is stupid enough to buy that magazine at £30, it's hardly the seller's fault - I wouldn't have any sympathy for the buyer in that case, how else are they going to gain a bit of common sense but to be parted with their money in a foolish way. There is no huge trick or scam in selling that, and the response has a bit of charm about it - I have a picture of a young Del Boy with a Cockney accent, wheeling and dealing on E-Bay rather than from a yellow coloured 3 wheel 'van'! :D

    Unbelievable - there's one born every minute!!

    I've got an issues 1 - 12 of the Dreamcast mag DCUK - after seeing this nonesense it's almost worth sticking them on ebay to see what someone will pay fro them. :rolleyes:

    Actually just found the Special issue of Official Dreamcast Magazine (which came out before issue 1 in October '99) and it's in imaculate condition. Just been reading through some old dreamcast mags and i'd forgotten how good a quality they were!
