Not surprisingly, the combination of extremely limited supplies of Playstation 3s and eBay proved to be quite that volatile mix. How else would you explain gems like the guy who sold an empty, promotional PS3 box for a whopping $1,100? Moreover, there were 22 bids, and the winner even jumped the gun to leave positive feedback (auction #260054534684).
Another take on the matter was auction #160053311905, where some enterprising fella registered the email address "firstname.lastname@example.org" and put it up on the block for $199. Just the email address, nothing else. There were six bids with the winner raking home the prize for a bargain $265. But hey, at least shipping was free.
