I've had two idiots today email me asking if I'm selling just the box, or everything that was included.
It's right there in the title. If people are blindly clicking and bidding on stuff without reading first, that's their own fault. Am I right, or am I right?

Perhaps some people were unable to get the bundle because they were sold out,having to purchase the items separately, and are collectors who wanted to display the box proudly on their shelves. I personally do not care to do so, as it just takes up space.

so according to title you sell box only, so I assume there is nothing in right ? XD

Edit: Can't believe people bids on it.

a little bit, i think any auction that is for box only is misleading.
you should probably put box only in bold all caps in both the title and the description.
if you aren't extremely extremely clear paypal will refund the buyer no questions asked.

maybe even add a picture of the box being empty and add a big NOTHING INCLUDED.

yes it's misleading because who the fuck sells boxes ?
you need to put in big bright red letters "THIS IS JUST THE BOX, YES I AM SELLING A BOX AND NOT THE ACTUAL CONSOLE" otherwise you'll get people emailing you about it.

The same people who sell game cases and instruction manuals only? Some collectors try to frankenstein a complete package.

Let me state again, it is right there in the title. Before this thread, if any of you saw this on ebay, would you bid on it thinking it wasn't just the box?

You should add in the description that it does not contain smash bros, controller, or adapter
I have a feeling that people paying $30 for this think its a complete set

So the words "Box Only" aren't fair indication that it is...Only the Box?
And also there's the item descripton commenting on the condition of the box, but no mention of the condition of the game, controller or adapter.

You should probably put a dash or a comma before "Box only" cause it seems kind of like a run-on sentence lol

Honestly, if I wasn't selling just the box, I wouldn't have even bothered putting the words "Box Only" in the title. Are people really this stupid? :wtf:

Ofcouse people are going to ask. Are you really that dense. Who the fuck sells a box without making it crystal clear that it is only a box. Why would you even make a thread do you need verification or are you that desperate for attention.

I was seeking a general consensus. I figured by having Box Only in the title, that one would have to be retarded not to realize it's just the box. And frankly sir, you can take your shit, flamebaiting attitude and shove it, as it is not needed here. Good day.

When I was looking for my Xbox I noticed people bidding on ads that clearly state box only and the bids were over £200 wtf are people thinking. Its in the title!!

Don't agree with it at all mind as people do bid by mistake
