Probably means one of two things

1. Sellers aren't getting what they want and creating a new account to bid what they would like to get. Unfortunately for them, this is too high and no real bidder is biting.

2. Many new users are swarming Ebay because they can't find Xbox locally. That was the case last year with PS2, but I find it hard to believe this year since Xbox isn't nearly so hard to find.

When I looked last week, there were many XBox auctions ending within an hour or so, but none of them up to the reserve price the sellers had set.

probably 12-year-old fanboys just trying to cause a stir. I noticed it too.

They are just pissed their "investments" aren't paying off, so they try it again.

Microsoft is stocking the shelf each week with 120,000 XBoxes. Therefore people aren't going out to Ebay to purchase one at an inflated price.

There are always many new users who swarm to ebay looking for merchandise which is hard to find. I would say there are a few who do bid on their own merchandise to stimulate a sale but not many.

I recently sold two gamecube systems on ebay. Both winning bidders had 0 feeback (with the little sunglasses) and both payed for the auction via paypal within one hour of auction ending. I would think that most of the 0 feedback users are just new users who must go to ebay as a final solution for finding these consoles.

That's pretty common with "hard to find" items that have a large release and broad interest. It's the same on XBox and GC. All reasons stated above are probably a little correct.
