That’s Freakin’ Awesome!

I just read this story on Yahoo! news:

A father went out looking for the coolest game he could find for his 15-year-old son for Christmas and happened upon a copy of “Guitar Hero III” for the Wii. Apparently, the game is pretty hard to find for the Wii, so it was a big coup. The sad part is, the father came home a couple of weeks ago to find his son smoking pot in the backyard, got pissed off, and put the game up for sale on eBay.

Here’s the kicker: It sold for $9,000. That would be NINE-freakin’-THOUSAND DOLLARS (U.S.). Holy cow. Some cat in Australia bought it. Now, I know that “Guitar Hero” is one of the most popular games in the world at the moment, but are you serious? That’s a lot of money for a game that retails for about $90.

You have to read the Dad’s last quote in the original story, which can be found here.
