Poor sod, that's a wounder.
Ouch...what an idiot
Meh, what are they going to do, leave negative feedback? eBay's rules are tilted to protect sellers (who pay eBay's bills) over buyers and since this was obviously a mistake I don't think the "Buyer" has any real chance of getting anything except his $.99 back.
there is no way on earth he'll hand it over. I almost hope he's ashamed of himself...!
thats what u get for jacking up MSRP for ur own personal fortune. im not saying its legally wrong... it is a valid way to make money... but jeez i hate those people.
I'm not a big fan of people who do this either (I'd put them about equal to ticket scalpers. However, if the buyer insists on the $0.99 price he / she is no better - maybe even worse - In my mind, preying on someone's mistake is worse than preying in their greed.
In the end I suspect Cthippo is correct so it's a moot point.
I'd refund the buyer his 99c, plus shipping and an extra few dollars for the trouble, then put the auction up again properly.
Gotta agree with this. He deserves to lose it for 99 cents - can't stand the greedy tossers who resell these things on the internet. Yes it's supply and demand, but it sucks for all the people who aren't crazy enough to spend 1k but would still like to get one of the things.
If I were him i'd retract it (and im damn sure alot of other people would!) from the auction - no way i'd sell it for $0.99 - the worst that can happen is a negative feedback, oh well who cares!!!
Gotta be an idiot if he hands it over!!
lol so funny thats what you get for being greedy lol
Serves him right tho, but yeah theres no way its getting sent anywhere for 99c
idiot. SLEEP AND POST not the other way around....
and thats why you double check EVERYTHING
I would force him to give it up for $.99. He was greedy, careless, and people like him hurt the market for people who actually want the console. I believe eBay should have banned the sale of PS3s until a long time after the release to prevent such greedy individuals from marking up and reselling PS3s.
Judging by the pictures this guy had 4 to sell, although I can't see if he's selling/sold them all on eBay or if they all went for $0.99, but still, some ridiculously optimistic bidder is going to be very disappointed in the form of canceled auction or an empty box.
