    According to the auction, it has DVD playback. By default this isn't a feature on the Wii, yet...

    So, has it been hacked or is the seller just being a numpty?

    Also, just to get it in, what does Paris Hilton have to say on the matter?

    Oh look, he's given his phone number too!

    There's a phone number in the listing. Anyone phoned it yet?

    And congratulations for shoe-horning a Denise Richards reference in there. We need more of those, please. And pictures. Yes.

    Gotta love whoever came up with the name for that console.

    Beyond that the kids got balls, and decent spelling, I think old Bill should throw some money his way.

    He can tell melinda he just bought some wiiiiii for her.

    I'm off . . . .

    I can see what you mean

    £10 postage is a rip off

    Brand New

    I love the fact that it's "Brand New" yet has "8 months warrenty with it as i bought it July this year" and "has only been used a handfull of times."

    Denise Richards - Showing your age arent you, she hasn't been any mans fantasy woman for at least 10 years!

    Cheap git...

    ...he isn't even throwing in free postage!

    Wendy Richards

    Even Wendy Richards was once eye-candy, maybe still even now for some...

    I thought the Way-aye was the first console from Newcastle.

    Reduced Price!

    Its only half a mill now.

    I agree with Craig tho, postage still a rip off

  17. Pete

    Now you've gone and done it

    He's obviously read some of the comments and had enough of the piss taking. He's now dropped the price to a more reasonable £500.000.00 :/

  18. Spleen

    I don't get it

    It's still better value than the Kindle or the iPhone. Why the sneering?

    Check again ...

    Looks like he's lowered his expectations ..... 500'000 now ...

    wow .. heh ... just wow

  20. DW

    Looks like there's a sale on.

    The price has since been slashed to a mere £500,000. What a bargain!

  21. Mark Broadhurst

    Letting the side down

    Letting poor old Paris down aren't we by having a Denise Richards angle instead!!!

  24. Adrian Jackson

    Don't call that number...

    ...unless you've got any 'quires'.

    He doesn't specify whether he means it in the sense of 1/20 of a ream of paper, or an archaic variation of 'choir', so you're probably good with either (though just to be on the safe side you might want to give each chorister a couple of dozen sheets of A4...)

    this price is so high as i've sold it outside of ebay so i dont want anyone to bid for it because i cant cancel it.

    Do not ring me!!!!!!!! <-- wonder how many calls he's had, dropped the price to a mere £1500 now

    Blooming Ridiculous

    Wanted to speak to him about it, been on ring back for hours but I suspect the phone is off the hook....

    Well annoyed as I was going to find out if he wanted to accept a higher offer.......

  27. Magilla

    Seems entirely reasonable...

    ...after all, he'd only need to sell three or four to afford the base model PS3...

    Tredegar ...nuff Said

    Hes a lad from tredegar in the Heart of the Welsh Vallies...They are easily confused by this kind of stuff up there....You knows it Clart!!!

  29. Stephen May

    1500 pounds now...

    He's dropped the price to 1,500GBP now, and said that it's been sold outside of Ebay. He also says that he can't cancel the auction, so please don't bid and please don't call him!

    No shortage

    Well there are piles and piles of the things here in the shops in Vienna. 250 EUR a throw and, apart from the plug, identical to the uk model. Unfortunately I only have space to ship one back and its spoken for (at cost, more fool me!).
