Pay £115 for an X-box box

More bizarre happenings down at the ol' e-bay ranch

IT'S A WELL KNOWN fact that the mental state of your average hardcore gamer is far, far from stable. From the wackos who collect games leaflets to the sad gits who write erotic fiction about their favourite Super Mario bad guy, REAL gamers are an odd bunch.

Further evidence proving gamers to be nutjobs can be found at the e-home of the internet crazies, e-bay, where some loony is selling a limited crystal edition X-box box. Yes, just the box. For £115.

Right, it may well be rare (ish) and pretty-looking, but who in their right mind would pay £115 for a BOX. The answer is someone like echo910, who in the seller's feedback section complains about having just paid over 100 quid for the box. Well, those weren't his exact words. His exact words are "never buy anything from this f**king w**ker £120 for a box". Oh dear.

The seller claims that the box will make you the envy of geeks everywhere. Maybe he's on about lobotomised geeks (although you could argue those are the only ones who'd buy an X-box in the first place).µ
