eBayer offers 60GB PS3 for less than a dollar

Ticked the wrong box?

Want an 60GB Sony PlayStation 3, a pile of games, a Blu-ray Disc and an extra game controller for a mere 99 cents? or would you rather take pity on the poor eBay who - apparently - set his 'Buy Now' price to $0.99 rather than his starting price.

It's an easy mistake to make, we suppose. But then the seller should beware just as much as the emptor should caveat.

We were ready to cough up a buck from our own PayPal account until we spotted the seller's only willing to ship to the US - and P&P is free if the buyer happens to live in the Boston area. How long before this bargain is snapped up by an early-rising North American?

You'll be able to find out who it was here.

Thanks to Reg Hardware reader David for the tip.
