XboX One Box

Just the box and only the box sold on Ebay for £155.00 with £8.29 P&P makes me quite frankly sick. Lookout folks.

Quote
The next generation Xbox One console special Day One FIFA Edition box and packaging, including an unused 14 day Day One Edition Xbox Live Gold trial.
Also includes the FIFA download card (slight tear, see pictures), which has already been redeemed, but included for prosperity.
Console not included.
Box and packaging will be sent in secure and safe packaging to ensure the safe arrival of your item.

Re: XboX One Box

People who have disposed of their console packaging have bought console packaging as it raises the resale value of their console.
However £155 does seem a little excessive.

Re: XboX One Box

Clearly someone believe that it included the console, and so did someone else to help the bid to get that high.

Re: XboX One Box

And out there there's someone that's daft enough to buy it.
Won't be me though, even I'm not that daft even if I had the 155 quid to spend, which I don't.

Re: XboX One Box

It's amazing what some people will pay for; some people really should be more careful reading the description.

That Is fair enough I guess but I don't think you are ' allowed ' to sell empty packaging on Ebay.  http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/prohibited-accessories.html

Re: XboX One Box

the con artisists flogging those boxes often write the "console not included" bit in red or green knowing some colour blind person will buy it for big money and then complain fruitlessly about having been ripped off ....

Re: XboX One Box

somewhat crazy but at least it is actually a console, I seem to recall one of the special edition halo consoles going for over 10k a few years ago, along with one of those racing ones (special case shaped like some sort of car) going for similarly stupid money although they purported to be one of 10 globally available....

Could understand that reasoning for an older system, but the xBox One hardly is?
A friend of mine got hold of one. Apparaently his wife was not happy about him spending the money so he put it on eBay. He'd like one, but isn't too bothered. So if his auction fetches enough profit he'll get rid, otherwise will keep for himself.
Not a bad system I think (the idea, not the xBox) Wink

If they don't read the small print, then they deserve everything they get, or in this case, don't get IMO.
I sympathize with the fact they can't see colours, but they should seek help before they click "Buy".
