Welp, Someone Done Tried To Sell Their Kinect Beta Already

Microsoft had to figure this was going to happen: Someone put their Kinect beta hardware and their console for sale on eBay, hoping to get $US1200 for it. It was rather quickly de-listed, however.

I haven't seen the entire EULA for this hardware beta but something tells me Microsoft probably forbids selling the unit and might, like, want it back. Seller blueroomproject (100 per cent feedback rating!) took it down yesterday afternoon with zero bids. Or maybe Microsoft dropped a dime to eBay and told them to six it.

Again, he was selling the console, which one would assume would be necessary to use this unit during the beta. It's also probably got a whole crapload of identifying information that it sends back to Microsoft's servers, which they could sleuth out to find which one of their ungrateful beta participants sold the thing off. Probably best this thing was pulled back, no harm, no foul. Still, what was that guy thinking?

    MONEY MONEY MONEY!!! That's what he was thinking.

    Possibly thinking, after realizing the junk he stole from that house he broke into is some rare as hell shit at the moment, he could sell it and make a small fortune.

    (or she).

    Or they are just stupid beyond belief.

    lol gotta love stupid people


    Love how you would buy it and then plug it in to your 360 and then it is not compatible with the current firmware and the only way to update is for MS to target your gamertag for a D/L of the firmware.

      That's why he was selling the console with it :)

    I will bet he is still selling it. Just not on eBay.

    Who the hell's going to pay $1200 USD for a few months early KINECT play?

    "Oh man, this is so $1200 better than a Wii! Worth every penny!"
