It looks like the seller took out both the buy it now and reserve(which upon further reading was $500) prices. I guess the bids weren't going up as fast as they had wanted.

I highly doubt what they do/did was legal.

Probably worked at a warehouse and stole them.

Some places break street date. The usual culprits are those mom and pop shops. Like all retailers get the games like 2-3 weeks before release date, and some of the smaller places or dumber places (like the Sears by Wolfe road Sunnyvale) sometimes sell the games earlier. That or like said above someone who works at a warehouse or a gamestop just took their copy early.

1) Its a pirated copy and its laced with a virus
2) Its not a real copy at all and its a straight-up virus
3) Straight up scam
4) The disks are legit - but there time locked and won't work without connecting to a central server first that tells them its X date.

Hey all,

With the US Election coming tomorrow (Tuesday the 6th), we the mods felt like it was important to make clear a couple of things regarding discussion of the election and political talk in general.

Primarily, please know that due to the high risk and commonality of flaming and arguments that result, HF's rules prohibit political discussion anyway on the site except the designated politics board. You can find that board here:

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/fo...ysprune=&f=160

The politics board has a somewhat more lax standard of moderation, allowing for flaming and more aggressive posting as long as it remains on-topic and steers away from gross offensiveness or racist/sexist/bigoted behaviour.

You will be allowed to post news links and updates on the election here in the OT thread, but only impartial, factual news (hard voting #s, projections, etc). It cannot be colored by editorializing or commentary from you or the source you are quoting.

Any attacks on other posters over political issues or attempts to hijack the thread with political commentary or partisan material will not be tolerated. We will hand out infractions and thread bans at our discretion if we feel it's necessary.

This post will be the only warning we give. We don't expect problems, but we wanted to make sure everyone knew the score.

Thanks,
The mods

With that said, have you ever had to post this warning when the Canadian elections are out, or is voting just a sham and the queen elects everyone?




Yes I know I just insulted myself now that I'm a Canadian in training

Careful with that kind of talk. You could get reported and the authorities would have no problem finding you out of the 50 other people living in that region
