    The auction would likely get removed withiin a couple of hours of you putting up.
    Burned games are worth the cost of your blank DVD. Nothing more. Best not to even mention backups in the listing.
    If you then want to offer them to the winner of the auction, you can email them privately afterwards.

    With just the mods you may have been able to get by, but you also included pirated software, which is a big no on when it comes to selling.

    You may have a chance if you don't included pirated stuff.

    Don't list the pirated stuff. Just list your legit items and then say something like plus extras, email for details.

    700$ for a modded wii , a bunch of controllers and dvd-r... I think this is a scam

    anyway, selling burned games would most likely get your sale closed at the end of the first day

    yeah, auction would be removed. I don't think you can even sell a modchip on ebay. plus $700 is a ripoff for that.

    $700, you have to be joking surely. If you're adding in the value of burnt games then you shouldn't be. It cost you next to nothing, so you shouldn't be profiteering off it.

    Ebay will simply remove the listing, and if not you'd be hard pressed selling it for that amount anyway. It is second hand afterall..

    That could lead to a problem. Just put the plus extras email thing. Mentioning the games could be misleading.

    You're really putting yourself into a legal risk. Pirating it for yourself is one thing, but selling something with pirated games can get you into some serious shit.

    These items, minus the burned games, are worth under $450 NEW. You're really trying to make $250 for some burned dvd-rs? $250 for pirated software? Really? Nice. You're ripping off the game developers and the purchaser all in one. Two birds with one stone, right?

    Dick. If I see the auction, I'll report it myself.

    You want to totally rip people off by simply "not mentioning" that the games are pirated? Neat. Maybe you'll go to jail. You really don't see any problem with what you're doing? Needing money to buy a PS3 hardly gives you the right to rip people off.

    You want opinions? Here ya go: grow up, and don't fuck people over. Here's another one, for free: get a job. It's summer, so unless you're in summer school, you've got no excuse there. And if you ARE in summer school... study>games.

    1. Be honest about what you are selling. It's really scummy to mislead people into buying pirated copies by making them think they're original.
    2. Don't sell pirated games.
    3. If you want a PS3 or a 360 that badly sell the Wii and then get a job to make up the difference.
    4. It's summer--people need lawns cut. Charge $20 or so a lawn and you'll have that PS3/360 in no time.
    5. You aren't going to get Eleventy billion dollars for a second-hand modded (warranty voided and/or expired) Wii-- regardless of how uber 133t you think it is.
    6. Pictures are a MUST for an ebay auction.

    I love how people pirate games and then want $300 extra dollars cuz they ripped ninty off for free. Ebay will pull your listing as wellas craigslist, and asking $700 for that pack wont matter nobody will ever buy it. I charge my friends $5-$10 for a game. Or take it out in trade. I also hate when people say WII WITH 10 GAMES and come to find out theres 10 games in wii play and its really only one game.
