Guitar Hero III Auctioned on eBay for $9,000

The sale price alone is worth the story, but that's not the best part.  A Canadian dad, ebay username of k_lid, sold his son's Guitar Hero III game (for the Nintendo Wii) on eBay for $9,100.01 after catching him smoking pot in the backyard with two of his "delinquent" friends.

"I am now finding it hard to justify rewarding him with this gift after he so greatly disappointed me," writes the brooding parent on his eBay listing page. "I know smoking a joint isn't the end of the world, but if you can convince me that he deserves the gift, then I will end the auction."

Consequently, the $90 game sold for $9,100.01 to an Australian buyer. Apparently, the majority of people sided with the dad.

Our only worry about this: the seller's rating is only 92.1.  We would never buy from someone with such a low rating.  Hopefully the story about the son is not just a "story" and all will turn out well.

For that amount of money you could have gone to a lot of live concerts and had front row seats i just got t in the park tickets and while i dont have the best seats i'm going to have a great time regardless. Like being up high at a baseball game you just scream louder

I still don't understand why the guy would pay $9000 for a guitar hero. It just doesn't compute. I guess I understand taking away the game, though I disagree completely. I mean how many of us can honestly say that we never smoked a joint or two in our youths?

i still don't understand why anyone would pay that much to make sure a kid doesn't get a gift his father bought him that he no longer wanted to give to his son because he smoked pot.

 

just try to read that sentence...
