Early Rock Band demo auction back on eBay [update]
[Update: It turns out that the auction was pulled when the seller realized he had purchased a demo unit of Rock Band, which includes all the instruments and a limited song list. He has relisted the item (at $326 as of this update) with the appropriate description. Thanks to our crafty readers for figuring this out.]
The original headline to this story was something more along the lines of "Guy gets Rock Band early, eBays it." As you may have guessed, and as Joystiq speculated beforehand, it seems the auction was shut down by the mighty gilded hands of eBay. Still, there's something worth reporting here. That, of course, is that this lucky soul managed to procure a copy of Rock Band nearly three weeks before release. The game was purchased from a Marina, California Best Buy, where it was nestled among copies of Guitar Hero III. Seizing opportunity, he bought it posthaste.
Ah, the poor schlub. Now he's stuck with the grim task of trying to sell it locally, or worse, actually playing it.
