Leaked Copy Of Modern Warfare 3 Sells For $1725 On eBay

There's only four days until you're officially allowed to buy Activision's latest blockbuster FPS. That's 96 hours. Yes, K-Mart in the US stuffed up and let some units slip out into the wild, where they've been spotted on eBay. But, you'd be playing such a copy at your own risk, at least if you don't want severe Xbox Live repercussions.

But that's not stopping one rabid CoD acolyte from shelling out more than $US1500 to get their sweaty paws on the military action threequel before the floodgates open next Tuesday. Apparently the purchase went down yesterday and, saddest of all, it might take three-to-four days for the game to get there if the delivery time quoted is to be believed. Which means you may not be getting the game that early after all. Maybe the winning bidder's just really into the singleplayer story?

    Estimated delivery is 3-4 days and its due for release in 4 days anyway.
    What a waste

    any reason this is under PC heading?

      I've read somewhere that multiplatform games are always reported under "PC" because that's the first tag that grabs it.

    its cheaper than what Activision is charging on steam for us :D

    I'm just amazed that the seller didn't throw in free shipping. $4? What a stingebag.

    Talk about buyer's remorse... Geez....

    Is there a link to the ended auction page? I know people can be downright stupid and all but really?

    That's got to be fake! Activision PR enters a new level of cheapness - like this cheap stab at the company:D

    Now the 2012 COD will be released is 3 stages

    $1000 - 1 month before
    $500 - 2 weeks before
    $109 - release day

    If anyone is going to monetize street dates it's Activision.


    I don't know whether to laugh at the buyer or to beat his head in with a cricket bat. Same goes for anyone else who bid past the $100 mark. If you are willing to waste that much on CoD, you don't deserve to have that much money in the first place.
