Early Copy of Modern Warfare 3 Sells for $1,725 on Ebay
Are you itching to get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 early? If you weren't one of the lucky few that managed to snag a copy from K-mart, there's still a way: Ebay. Just be prepared to spend quite a bit.
One of the latest auctions on Ebay for a early copy of Modern Warfare 3 ended with a winning bid of $1,725. That's quite a price for a game you might not be able to even play early, at least without risking your Xbox LIVE account. But I assume if you're crazy enough to spend that much on a game coming out in a few days, you're not worried about a potential Xbox ban. According to the bid history, there were 88 bids on the game.
I'm not necessarly as shocked with the final winning bid price as I am that the seller still felt the need to charge an extra $4 for USPS Priority Mail shipping. Must be the tough economy.
Don't worry, there are still other copies of Modern Warfare 3 floating around on the online auction house. As of right now there is one bid that still has 2 days left. The current Buy It Now price is set at $1,000, or best offer. How much are you willing to pay to receive the game a couple of days early?
