Good thing Ebay has buyer protection.
Why would you bother paying like $300 more? That's like what an extra controller and 4 more games? That's stupidity within itself.
And if the post on Ebay really did say "PHOTO" and not actually the console, well than it's really the buyers fault.. It's really not that hard to read a post and find out what you are buying, just be smart.
I got to thinking about this... I feel bad for the guy(absolutely Caveat Emptor. He should pay close attention when buying online.), but I'm curious. What is a four year-old doing with an Xbox One? Shouldn't be playing with Legos and stuffed animals and toys that require him to move about and be active instead? To each his own parenting techniques, I suppose.
Couldn't agree more, Garry. Wow, just wow. It's either really a present for Dad or this guy has his parenting priorities way out of sort.

Buyer's fault, kind of feel like eBay shouldn't have refunded him the money if it was clearly and accurately described in the description that it was just a photo. Plus he's an idiot for trying to buy a console for 1.5 times the actual worth anyways.
Slow the boat, fellas. I think it's way premature to make the jump that this is bad parenting. We have no idea what kinds of games the kid is allowed to play, and how much game time he would be getting, or that it could even come at the expense of other activities (like Legos) versus a replacement for watching TV. Let's also not forget that the Kinect allows for plenty of movement -- my buddy's athletic 11-year-old kid literally works up a heavy sweat whenever he comes over and hops on the Xbox 360 to play soccer in front of the Kinect. When I was a kid playing games, there was no exercise involved in playing Pong or Pac-Man.
To those commenting on why he paid so much, keep in mind he's in the U.K. Looking at Amazon over there, it appears he pretty much paid the going rate - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microsoft-7UV-00080-Xbox-One-Console/dp/B00BE4OUBG
Glad things worked out OK in the end, but honestly, if you a) have a 4-year-old child at age 19, and b) think dropping $735 on an XBox One is an appropriate gift for a kid that young, your decision-making skills are probably a little suspect anyway.
Got a girl pregnant at age 15, no surprise why he has trouble reading.
There should be no refund, he got what he deserved. Karma always gets you, having a kid at 15, and then "buying" an xbox for a 4-year old. How is that kid going to even navigate the controls at that age or even play the games? Children at that age can just bearly manage simple games on tablets.
Who the hell pays $735 for an XBOX.....seriously not even Nintendo cost that much when it came out for the first time
Fucking dumbass deserved it buying an xbone.
A 19 year old gamer.... Wanted to give it to his 4 year old son.... Sounds like PR to me! There is no way this expensive adult console was meant for a 4 year old when th dad is only 19!! It was clearly for the dad lol
Im not believing his story, bet he just brought it for himself then "O crap, i just got screwed" so he makes up this lie that its for his "4" year old son so he doesn't look as stupid or so people sympathize him.
I would assume that this was all him being idiotic and using other reasons to make himself look less idiotic
A lesson learn !!
