Ebay stupidity

A fool and his money are soon parted.

You've heard that old cliche, right? Phrases become cliches often because they're true. And this is never more beautifully demonstrated than on Ebay sometimes.

The video game Red Dead Redemption, a Western open-world game, came out on Tuesday. If you pre-ordered it on Amazon, you received a code for a downloadable "Golden Gun Weapon Pack" that you could outfit your character with. If you didn't pre-order it, you didn't get it.

According to Games Radar, somebody is selling that code on Ebay. And it's currently (as of the time of the Games Radar post, anyway) at $36!

$36 for something that you would get for free if you had pre-ordered the game? Just how stupid are these people? Would you pay for something like this if you missed the pre-order period? Or would you just say "oh well, I guess I missed it" and move on with your life?

I really don't get it.

What other weird Ebay sales have you seen? I'd love to know (mainly because I don't have time to find any more right now).

And don't forget to answer the poll question on the Games Radar page!


  1. Lol wow! That is pretty ridiculous. There's always a ton of crazy things going on on eBay. I think the best eBay listing I ever saw was a divorced man who was auctioning off his ex-wife's wedding dress. Just found the listing here lol:
