Nope - a PS2 (w/games), currently at 100010[sic].

The thing that gets me is that there's been a bid. If eBay can trace that
person, he/she could be in trouble - presumably the bid constitutes a
legal contract.

I may have to go to a *caf at lunchtime... *evil cackle*

But looking at the bid history, it started off at normal prices - 300
reserve and it only got out of hand after 2000 (which is too much anyway).
It's broken out into a war between two people it seems!

100,010 for a PLAYSTATION 2???!!!!

You have GOT to be kidding me....

I mean, you will be able to buy them for 200 next year when the rush dies
down.  What a pair of loonies!

Then again, if these guys can afford 100,010 for ANYTHING then hey, why
not!

What makes you want a games console THAT badly?    They must know something
we don't!

Madness....

Maybe it has a super-duper built-in spectrum emulator? In which case I'll
take two.

Many eons ago,  in the dim, dark and distant past, h.maffin once waffled on
about:

I think if it was me, I'd not be holding out much hope of actually getting the
100K..

What, do you mean the *-coated controllers so you get a kick just out
of holding them? I thought the narcotic effects of the PS2 were well
documented!
