i have seen a few auctions like this and always feel sorry for the bidder. they probably send the $ right away anticipating the arrival of their product and only get "a box". i always wonder what happens in a situation like this, but as always...buyer beware!!

I'd think there are a few people that get misled by the statement "This is the box only" and think it's the xbox box without controllers. Of course if they bid $300+ for an empty cardboard box without asking questions about more details then there's a class A sucker!! I'd say it's the cardboard box and packaging only and doesn't include the xbox itself. But that's just me.

yup HEHE.... he isnt lying since the box does have those specs.... however it fails to state that the actual box does nothing LOL..

im pretty sure the ppl that bought it/bid on it emailed the seller to confirm the auction contents.

Its a little strange with things like an xbox and electronics on ebay in general.

Thats why i like the feel of buying my stuff in stores LOL..... except for projectors and such which i rely on hidplanet members for.

The title says "Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium Edition System Box". No doubt seller knew what he was doing... hoping to get some idiots hooked... and succeeded.

Actually he lists these fetures under the heading:Additional Information about Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium Edition System, Game Console.. and also lists twice in the description that he is selling the box only .. so as e-bay rules go he could very well be selling just the cardboard box only.. Just remember on E bay---buyer beware!! His description, while deceptive, is actually accurate for just selling the box and he does list in bold print that it is the box only! Hopefully this was not the case but as PT Barnum said" there is a sucker born every minute"!!

Because they can make money that way. Legally the person who purchases the box cant do a thing about it since it says "Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium Edition System Box". Thats why you must read everything the seller puts very carefully before purchasing on Ebay.

or ask repeatedly like an illiterate buffoon LOL. Thats what i usually do, most of the time the stuff i buy is used and its really hard to get tricked on, like go kart calipers and such, the pics speak for themselves... I even had a guy mail me the plastic case of the brake since it was pictured... thats how honest some sellers are.

BUt i guess with the xbox 360 hype something like this would work.
