Sensational Controller:

New gamers intuitively move the controller while playing, even though that movement has traditionally had no relation to what's going on in the game. Sony has picked up on this tendency and is using it to bring a new level of control into the PS3. Inside the controller is a high-precision six-axis sensing system that accurately detects fine movements in pitch, roll, and yaw, as well as three dimensions of movement, to control games. This means that future PS3 games will be controlled by the movements of your hands rather than just your thumbs. For example, you might be able to steer a car by holding the controller like a steering wheel.

This is only for information to buy a ps3, you will not actually receive a ps3 from winning/buying this auction, all you will recieve is information on where to obtain a $400.00 PS3.

In other words: you are not bidding $400 for an actual PlayStation 3. You are bidding on the secret information that this guy will give you once payment is secured on how to obtain a PlayStation 3... for another $400.

And if anyone considers this to be a wise investment, I have some beautiful ocean-front property in Wyoming to sell.

This remidns me of last year:

Thinking outside the XBox: $800 for empty container

Karen Frank planned on getting her son an XBox 360 for Christmas.

So did thousands of other shoppers. Stores have been selling out of the new Microsoft game console since it launched in November. Some retailers exhausted their supplies months before that, with waiting lists exceeding several shipments.

So Frank did what other desperate parents do when the holidays approach and shelves are empty. She turned to online auctioneer eBay and paid $810 for the game system - double the retail price. Frank won the auction, beating 30 other bids. The package also included the racing game "Need for Speed: Most Wanted."

"Did you realize that you were bidding on an empty box?" the informant asked. When her order arrived, she indeed found only an empty box. It was, as the Wisconsin-based seller later told her, exactly what the description said: a "new XBox 360 Premium box."


Back then I went over to ebay to look up these "empty box" auctions and there were alot of them! The sellers were quite open in their item descriptions about the item being nothing but an empty cardboard box! And they were selling! One woman had an auction with an empty box that she created herself! It wasnt an actual box from the manufacturer.

For some reason this ended up listing on the Harry Potter post instead of here...let's try that again, shall we?

"Disease with shoes, man, disease with shoes...

OH, and I really miss the good ol' days of REAL Sesame Street.

And congrats to you and the missus on the Anniversary!"

Hopefully this'll work.
