    The plot thickens...

    They've reduced the price to £10 and are apparently trying to reassure people with a change to the listing description, though I think they got it slightly wrong:

    :curious:
    Is there any way you can assure me that this is in fact the real deal? It just seems too good to be true to be honest.

    Thanks
    Well that's what I sent him as a message...so it seems I'm not the only one. But reducing the price is a dumb way of reassuring people...it just points to the fact they are stolen....

    I sent him a question last night asking if it's the UK (PAL) version he's selling. He hasn't come back to me. :beard:

    Andrew's theory is sound. The game might not be boxed.
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=180470322327

    Have a look Geoff....he's changed the version to PAL (UK Standard).

    And IIRC he's increased the quantity by 20.

    And to make it worse he's changed the P&P to 2nd class and 'Will usually dispatch within 5 working days of receiving cleared payment.' Which is like just after the auction ends...

    You're being sarcastic right? (the crack is part of the box art)

    Damn, I would have purchased one if I had saw that. £10 ain't gonna hurt.

    Still very shady though...

    I HAVE HAD A FEW QUESTIONS FROM BUYERS ASKING ME WHETHER THIS IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE AND I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT IT IS, I HAVE BEEN A SELLER ON EBAY FOR WELL OVER 6 MONTHS NOW AND HAVE A SELLER RATING OF OVER 50 AND PLEASE READ MY FEEDBACK TO CONFIRM THAT I AM GENUINE

    doesn't make me feel any better to be honest.. The dude is clearly a mobile phone dealer (where he get's them could be questioned also, as they are rather cheap) and not a video game dealer..

    Gone down to a £10 though.. I think my theory could be true. :holmes:

    It could be a demo... burnt on to disc perhaps? If there is a demo that is...

    If I was that guys friend, and I have x amount of free copies of Bioshock 2 (excluding how ridiculous that is anyway) I would sell them myself, not give them to someone else to sell!! Nobody is that selfless. If I was considering buying I'd ask for a real life photograph of the game first tbh.

    And he basically says in the description it's too good to be true! :teehee:

    Basically, what the guy is selling is these:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SOCOM-Confront...item3ca98b34aa

    It's the full game, but on a promo disc that Sony & people who work for them & review sites receive for them to try out.

    :holmes:

    Well, that's what im going with anyway. Seeing as they are going for about £7.99-£10 a game.

    I also messaged that eBay guy last night, asking when he would dispatch it as I was hoping to get it before I go away at the weekend. No response yet.
    If it is these promo discs, how the hell would someone get so many copies, and all still sealed (as he claims)? Unless he genuinely does has a friend who works for Sony and had got hold of these leftover promos?
    It also seems the items have been re-listed with 2nd class post, and more copies added, rather than the actual listing having been changed. There are still copies of MW2 available from the listing I bought from, but it's ended.

    II'm still completely unconvinced on this, I think - especially after his amendments to the listing. I got no reply to my question either, and I see that it's ended now, anyway. :nothing:


    ACII arrived today! :awesome:
