Solid gold XBox360 faceplate for sale on eBay

Recommended Posts

$36,000!? I thought the Xbox 360 itself going for $12,000 on ebay was bad enough. On the plus side, you can at least melt the gold back to an ingot.

And if you read the whole listing, by doing so you'd end up losing at least $15K since that's the actual material worth of the gold (according to the listing). All the labor and craftsmanship costs melted away into a rectilinear slab...

No takers so far.

As far as I'm concerned; if his friend is so rich, why is he selling the item on eBay? If I was rich - and stupid enough to have it made - I'd keep it.

Lose $15k. A mere bag of shells.

But very true. But I was making the point in relation to the Xbox for $12,000. Unless that's also made out of gold, there is no way to recoop anything on it. It's a total investment loss. At least with the gold face plate you'd get a little less than half the money back.

Agreed, it doesn't make sense. If I was a skeptic, I'd say more like it was gold plated aluminum.
