1 question are the xbox360 on e-bay in anyway fake or broken today is my first day on e-bay and i dont want to get conned
I wouldn't be surprised if there are some out there. The best way to do it would be find a reputable dealer by finding one with a lot of Positive responces. However, E-Bay it a well run company and does have several ways of protecting you from bad purchases. Just becasue you are 12 I suggest you get your parents to shop with you. They would need to be the ones defening you to E-Bay if something went wrong.
ok thanks do people make new accounts to give themselves feedback
It would take people months if not an entire year to put a scam like that together. The people who have over 2000 rep are people who sell items through E-Bay to make extra cash. They are legitimate businessmen/women who are working an E-Bay store to suppliment their normal income. Unless it is a specialty item like Warhammer Army or a used video game I wouldn't buy from somebody with less then 2000 rep and less then 97% positive feedback. Its just a personal preference. Always read the negative feedback, make sure it is just people saying there package didn't get delivered on time. Pay attention for people posting about mercahdise being illegal copies. The advantage is E-Bay closes down counterfieters if a buyer turns them over and follows through with E-bay. I have turned over one guy who sold illegal copies of Anime. E-Bay shut him down quick.
Remember E-Bay is a business not just a community. If you don't shop there becasue you are unhappy then E-Bay doesn't get their cut of the $$.
do people put up bids in the last 10 seconds? and will i have a problem with a french xbox?
People will always try to put up bids in the last few seconds of an auction on eBay; it's the best time to "steal" the auction.
Be careful trying to buy things on eBay, though; read the descriptions very carefully. Many people will say "NEW XBOX 360, yadda yadda blah blah.." and in very fine print have "note: This is not an auction for an Xbox 360" or something similar to that.
A lot of the ones, especially the super cheap ones, will be like that, or just ways to maybe "win" one; not very likely. They are many a time just scams to get cash.
in the description what if it just talks about the 360 not what you are getting cause people are saying?
" the console comes with "
"you a bidding for"
p.s. and jakson what if people make accounts to give temselves rep?
is this a good buy

Nope. That is in fact, a terrible seller - one thing my mother always tells me, do your homework (as in shop around) before you go to buy something priced like that. The 360's there are priced up at around Â£399.99. You can get the full package (hard drive, wireless controllers etc) from GAME (www.game.uk.com) for Â£279.99 with a game added into the bundle (i'm not sure if this is only in stores, but if it is, just go to a store and buy one!) or amazon (www.amazon.co.uk) for Â£279.99. While the availability isn't amazingly promising, do you really want to waste another Â£120 on getting an xbox360 a few days earlier when it may not even play UK games? I'd say play it safe and buy from somewhere like GAME, i've never had trouble with them at all, and their prices are low - plus they will match the price of anything in their store if you find it for cheaper elsewhere.
