    So, this is my story: on December07 I jumped in and won a 360 auction on eBay that turned out to be a scam, then I bought a PS3 from BestBuy but I had to return it because of an emergency. THEN I won another PS3 auction on eBay that ended up being a scam too!

    I must be cursed by the next-gen gods!

    Yeah, the first time eBay was the one that warned me, I got a refund and all, the second time, well, same thing but I'm still waiting for the refund.

    I never buy expensive things like that on eBay, I think going by your experiences that you shouldn't in the future either.

    Just search for shops that have the best deals on the consoles and go and buy one.

    Well, both times their users were banished by eBay.

    And yes MC, I think I'm learning my lesson. BTW, my cousin is actually bribing me to get a 360 instead of a PS3, so far, she is offering me 75USD to get it, she is succeeding.

    I still haven't tried buying shit from an auction site like ebay because of what might happen.

    Retailers like CC and BB are offering 360s with two free games I think. Or this promotion is over I didn't know.

    I thought you already had a 360, saw you pop up once just recently.

    True, I'm hoping to get the second refund and get one. I sign on Live on every other weekend at the house of the husband of my uncle's sister (by law), LOL.
