Yes. That is 500 rotten eggs. Not real rotten eggs, but rotten eggs as in totally fake not real rotten eggs , that you can then sell in the game for $1,000,000. The 500 rotten eggs can be obtained by duplication glitch trick that takes about 30 mins to do.

Thoughts?

All most pretty sure that it would be since its not really a glitch its just a game mechanic like that of bulders gate or diablo where you are able to save certain parts of a game outside the normal save such as equipment...ect So if your able to save equipment and items beyond the main game then it should work on the ps3 version.

If they can make money doing it then credit to them.

If idiots want to pay for something like this then I really don't have a problem with it. Why not a regular person profit from someone's laziness and stupidity, rather than see Capcom eventually sell in-game money as DLC (ie. The Godfather game)...though I don't honestly believe Capcom will do that.

Nope, but I can appreciate the entrepreneurial spirit when I see it. Gold farming in WoW is a bit different as there is a whole economy there that they're ruining, on the other hand it is giving people in deprived areas jobs.

In Resident Evil, there's no economy to affect and the guy is simply making money from people who are too lazy or stupid to do it themselves.

If there are people stupid enough to buy this crap then it's a good idea!

I think you just threw yourself into a hole with your WoW statement, thus proving PureRok's point, sir.

Back to the subject at hand. I've also seen this eBay auction. All I can say is that there are a lot of gullible and/or idiotic people in this world, but hey, whatever makes them happy, right? Another lesson learned.

And what was wrong about his WoW statement?  He's absolutely right.  Gold farming in countries like Korea is actually an incredible job for many to get, especially when their other options are child prostitution or slumming it hardcore.  The same goes for Wal-Mart sweatshops.  While many will frown upon both of these as taking advantage of underprivileged peoples, but you have to remember that "underprivileged" is in contrast to US, not them.  In Korea, working in a gold farm is a good job.

Now, in WoW, there WAS an economy that was being fucked up by all the gold selling.  However, now that it's easier than hell to make money in that game, gold selling isn't anywhere NEAR as big of a deal.

Therefore, I can not only agree and backup Steve's statement 100%, but I can easily state that a vast majority of WoW players never have the need to buy WoW gold...as it's basically worthless in the search for better gear.

You're also missing the point. But that's OK, keep talking.

If you ever buy any virtual items from eBay, I'm going to come to your house and beat you with a stick.

Do we actually have a rule for Ebay linking? The last thing I wanted to do was "advertise" this. If you have read this thread and are thrilled by the prospects of purchasing these 500 fake rotten eggs, I will personally torch your house.

...which is not an advertisement...
...unless you've screwed up in real estate and you...

...crap...
