XBox 360 and eBay

The XBox-360 is out in the States. Those of us in AU will have to wait until March to get it. A$499 for the non-HD version, or A$649 with it.

Meanwhile some sneaky people on eBay have been selling what appears at first glance to be an XBox 360, but upon closer examination is actually an email address on Hotmail/Yahoo mail. Pity the poor fools that have bid for them. (via Lex)

Okay, now why does an eBay AU listing have a “Report This Item” link, but the same auction on the US site doesn’t? Ah, turns out it’s being trialled in Australia, with the rest of the world hopefully getting it soon…ish.

    It’s such a shame that it seems that some people are unable to read item listings, isn’t it?

    It reminds me of an eBay auction here in the UK back in 2000 – someone sold a PS2 box. Someone brought it, and then complained to eBay when there was no PS2 inside the box. Read the bit past the hyphen again. Unsurprisingly, eBay took no action over it, as the seller made it clear that it was just for the box and not the console as well.
