|Subject: Xbox 360 sells for...$3050!!! Sun Mar 21, 2010 12:45 pm|| |
As the price tag would suggest, this is not a normal Xbox 360 and as you may have guessed it's got a story behind it which could actually make it the first piece of political gaming memorabilia out there. The Xbox was auctioned off on eBay by the city of Baltimore and is the console that helped kick the then-mayor Sheila Dixon out of office.
The 360 was seized from Dixon's home in 2008 after allegations of embezzlement and it turned out that she actually bought the console with gift cards which were meant for the poor - what a saint. A jury later found her guilty and she resigned from office on 4th February this year and was ordered to carry out 500 hours of community service.
The $3,050 package included a controller and a copy of Need for Speed Carbon. All proceeds went to Youthworks of Baltimore.http://www.hustlegaming.com/topmenu/hustle-gaming-blog/10-03-20/Xbox_360_sells_for_3_050_on_eBay.aspx

LOL Somebody really loves the kids of Baltimore to buy a basic 360 for that much... I mean I understand she stole alot of money, but you can get that same 360 for like $98 on Ebay with a controller & everything..

$3,050 is insane, but I would've paid more if I had the money.
