So. As some of you casual gamers may have already noticed, the game called “Flappy Bird” was removed from the App Store (and presumably Google Play) earlier.
The game was removed by its creator, probably due to being a fairly obvious ripoff of several similar games.
So… the weird shit starts. Ever since the game was removed, iOS and Android devices have been popping up on eBay at ludicrously increased price rates. Honestly, it’s a real thing and it’s even dumber than the Team Fortress hat economy.
As of writing, a few of the tablets and phones mentioned have actually sold – an iPhone 4 for £495, an iPhone 5 for £470… (yes, I’m aware thats even stupider..) oh, and, apparently, a Samsung S4 for £1200, although this one does say its relisted, so theres a good chance the buyer just did it for a joke and cancelled.
Theres still a chance for some of these to sell, so here’s a couple of highlights:
I think my personal favourite is the top auction – £153,4500, with 143 bids. Good luck getting that money and not getting charged £28k as an end fee..
