    So today i spoke with a person who claimed to have pre released games available for sale for half what they cost at retail, Iphone 5s and ps vitas and PS3 3d displays all for dirt cheap. and swears up and down they are not stolen, Has cod3 prestige edition for example.. and some others anyone ever hear tell of these types of things actually happening?

    It's obviously a scam, seeing as 2 of those things aren't even out yet...It's either:

    - Stolen.
    - Fake.
    - Not real (Seeing as the iPhone 5 and PS Vita aren't even out yet).
    - A front for something else, like [censored] or murder...You never know.

    Either you will get robbed, or you'll buy a PSP in a Vita case.....
    Iphone5 isn't out anywhere, ONE escaped into the wild but just one.

    Lol, probably not even that, just a box with "Vita" scribbled on it in Sharpie marker and nothing inside outside of maybe a weight or possibly a funny novelty jack-in-the-box that pops out of the box when you open it and punches you square in the face for being such an enormous retard.

    I could maybe see "someone" selling pre-released games maybe a week before they hit shelves (like they stole a bunch from a gaming store's stockroom before they hit shelves) but Vita units don't exist outside of demo units and I bet a fair share of games they'd advertise aren't even done in development.

    Uh, why for even a millisecond would you even contemplate that what your friend said was anything but a complete lie?

    Unless your friend is a time traveler, he hasn't got squat. If he did, he could be selling the things for thousands of dollars a piece.

    Go buy him a helmet and a lollipop and just laugh at anything he says, because he's retarded.
