They have been available at every B&M(Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc.) I've walked into since Christmas. Yet sellers on Ebay are still saying they are hard to find.

Well, as some kind of defense for the first one, the X-Box he's selling is a collectible. I think it's crazy to pay that much but at least it's not just for a standard system.

The bidder has a rating of -2. For some reason, I'm inclined to believe his bid of over $120,000 is a joke.

Costco seems to be the easy place to get one in San Antonio. They have had a ton of Xbox and Gamcube bundles since before Christmas. The Bundles are actually a good deal too, but I don't like the two games that come with the Xbox personally. You could always sell them though. Its $419.94 or so for an Xbox, extra Controller, NFL Fever, and Oddworld.

The Fake "X" Box on eBay???

Speaking of stupid eBay-ers... did any of you see the dude who was selling an "X" Box on eBay? it was a cardboard box with a big ol' "X" written on it in black marker. He included the picture and a warning sayin that this is not a real X-Box, bid at your own risk... and people were bidding on it... this was the week before the X-Box was released. it was selling for over $500.

CRAZY!!!

Hmmmmm...........that one machine signed by Bill Gates, at least that's a unique item, though not worth to me, over $1000.

The other one, at $120, 000 or something like that, is just a joke bid. No one will pay that, even if they bid on it.

Plus this seller had that ridiculous amount as his minimum bid.

Actually, I don't believe this guy had any bids for his "Bill Gates" XBox. That was a crazy minimum bid amount!
