PS3 eBayed for $ 10.00? (something’s rotten in Denmark)

You think ONE HUNDRED MEEEEEELION DOLLARS (mandatory Dr. Evil pinkie salute) for a PS3 is something? Try TEN DOLLARS (we dunno how we’re gonna salute this):

*Cough, cough* Ripoff! *Cough, cough*

We don’t think when iSuppli said that the PS3 “was a bargain”, they meant that. At the same time, we’d like to point out that something smells fishy about this. Spidey sense tingling very much. Note the portions of the screencap we’ve encircled. “The seller ended this listing early to sell to the high bidder(s) at current bid price.” And there was only ONE bid, and the auction was terminated afterwards. Come on, no one could be that desperate to get rid of a PS3… especially when you’ve paid for the 60GB SKU.

He could be trying to rip the buyer off – except that his eBay rep is good, albeit it’s not like he’s gotten many ratings from eBuyers. So is the buyer’s rep – same deal, same conditions. If there really is a PS3 in the deal, and this isn’t that kind of rip-off, then… Hmm… We have our theories, but we would be mean to air them out in this post.

Put it this way, however: eBay hasn’t cracked down on this concluded auction yet. Nor have we heard word on teh intarwebs about it. But, unless the seller’s a Good Samaritan of the first order, something still feels dodgy about this…
