I agree, if that guy can do that then we might as well all do that. LOL. Maybe the WMF should do this! FellowWiki Newsie 17:34, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

It would make a great donation to WMF. :) Pilotguy roger that 20:07, 18 December 2007 (UTC)


And for smoking pot you are sentenced to Barbie for Christmas. Heh, I was laughing my ass off when I read that bit. --Brian McNeil / talk 18:03, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Hilarious, good job dad![edit]

That'll teach a life long lesson about drugs, awesome. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:52, 18 December 2007 (UTC)


Why was the game auctioned so high? Please explain. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:29, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Funny thing is the game wont work on an australian wii. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:43, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Just a little odd[edit]

Doesn't it seem unusual to anyone that a man who clearly could have purchased the game at a much cheaper price after Christmas would spend such a heinous amount of money just to have it for the holiday?

This is just my opinion, but no videogame is worth $9,000 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:49, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

As the article notes, that was just the winning bid, it is unknown if the transaction was completed at that price. --SVTCobra 15:56, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

I don't buy it[edit]

You can go on e-bay and use buy it now and get the game for $125. Some of those buy it now auctions look a little old like they may have even been around when this supposedly happened... I think its made up...Zath42 18:46, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Seems doubtful, a search for completed listings in all categories for "guitar hero" gave results back to December 7th and highest price for a completed transaction was $1150 and that came bundled with a wii and a bunch of other games. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:32, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

lol too bad for the kid —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:57, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

dad sells game[edit]

hat really sucks for that kid!!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:46, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Issues with the article[edit]

This article has many mixed up facts. It states basically that a Canadian or Australian father sold the game for 9000, but then later in the article mentions him selling it for slightly more that that. I don't feel this article is fit for the main page of wikinews. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zachary (talkcontribs) 05:48, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

I love and support weed. I think the dad's a fucking dick head and douce bag. And i wouldn't buy the damn video game for $9000 i'd just buy a acual Gibson Les Paul for that price. Hey Mr. that's the dad of this article you can suck my dick.10:4

That is the fucking Gayiest article i've read.

a round of applause![edit]

There's not much I can say except the dad did the right thing by punishing his kid. Weed, hah! Pandacomics (talk) 04:35, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
