Modern Warfare 3 Early Copies Sell For Ludicrous Amounts, Apparently
Want Modern Warfare 3 early? It’s huge bank loan time!
Modern Warfare 3 is selling for silly money on eBay, if a collection of numbers I’m looking at on my screen right now are anything to go by.
Some lucky types got hold of mistakenly-released copies of the new Call Of Duty over in Americaland, and we’ve seen some copies pop up on eBay as a result. You’d expect that. You’d expect them to sell for a premium – and to be honest you’d be hard pressed to blame people for taking advantage of the situation.
But the numbers have gone this high:
That’s a bit silly. Just a smidge. That’s almost fifty thousand real dollars (and more than fifty thousand CANADA DOLLARS).
But I’d be willing to bet this isn’t the work of someone crazy enough to actually pay that much money. Well, I’d hope that’s the case. My gut instinct says it’s a case of joke/sabotage bids and nobody will actually pay this amount of money.
Bu then, if you’re one of the crazy bastards who has bought an early copy of MW3 for a stupid amount of money, and has actually paid that money, please get in touch. Play@imagine-publishing.co.uk. Really, do. We’d be interested to hear why you’re so mad in the head.
