We all know by now that the limited editions of Destiny were, well, LIMITED. Fans on every corner of the internet are letting everyone else know how they feel (most quite upset). When I first heard that they sold out quite fast, my first thought was how much they were going to sell on eBay, and sure enough way over sticker price ($150). I saw $300, $400, and even $450 with 2 days left to go and over 50 bids.

According to an article on Kotaku, an Xbox One Ghost Edition of Destiny was sold to someone with the winning bid of a staggering $1,025.00.

I don't know about you, but this seems slightly outrageous for what it is. But I guess if you have the money to burn why not? Or some poor guy will be missing out on a few mortgage payments.

Makes me want to put mine up on eBay...but I think I'll take the bragging rights instead:tongue:.

Thoughts, comments?

If people got money like that to spend then be my guest. IMO if I had the Ghost Edition for Xbox One and could sell it for anywhere near $1000 I definitely would. I'm not a collector or a fan of the extra stuff that comes with special editions of games unless it's a season pass. If I was the guy who sold the Ghost Edition for over $1000 that money would be going towards the regular edition of destiny then towards a gaming PC.

This is one of the first games to actually offer a truly limited edition while supplies last. Majority of developers continue to sell the highest tier edition of their game right up to the release day or sometimes even past the release day. I wish I could have bought the ghost edition only because Destiny will be an amazing game and I would have loved to show my support for Bungie and the start of their new game series. Congrats to the guy on ebay with that $875 profit.

Yeah, they actually stopped making them, so of course people are going to pay mad amounts of money. The dude made a hell of a profit off it.

This is really making me considering buying future special editions of games just to sell for a huge profit. This could also backfire if no one buys it lol.

I know it. Wonder how much they'll go for right before/after release for those impulse buyers.

Considering most developers continue to make their "limited" edition game versions up until the release day or until people stop pre-ordering them, your plan has a high possibility of backfiring. :frown: It is a really good idea though.

Ya that plan would be a hit or miss.

If you make Youtube videos on this game before it gets released then you can make some serious bank off this game and it would basically pay for itself.

You do understand that most of these are fake bids. Does this seem legit?

I missed out on the limited edition xbox one version unfortunately. I'll just wait for until someone forgets to pick their pre-ordered copy up at my GameStop then I'll snag it. More than likely I'll see the ghost itself selling on Ebay for $100 within a couple months of release. That's how I get most of my premium statues and stuff.
