Haha. What is even funner is putting it on E-Bay and watching a bunch of pathetic wastes of human debris buying them for $1000+ dollars!

Overpriced is an understatement.

Listen all y'all, it's arbitrage.

You don't actually think the high-bidder is actually going to pay up, do you?

pathetic wastes of human debris? Now that's a mouthful of nothing.

Why did they smash it? I would have paid $600 for it!

The high bidder on the $15K Playstation auction indeed did not pay up. However, bearing in mind how eBay's bidding works, the final bid may mean that someone else was willing to pay almost that much.

As for why they smashed it... probably specifically to piss off people who would have paid $600 for it. It sounds as if they got $600 worth of fun out of it and the promotional value for their site was probably worth much more than that.

But then again, as they say : you will never overpay one single cent on anything you ever buy.
