    To go allow with the guidelines:

    I am selling a Sony Playstation 3 60gb bundle
    This is bundled with 1 game (COD3 or Need for speed carbon), 1 10 foot HDMI cable, and an extra controller.

    Thanks,
    Jack

    First and foremost, there is a rather sizeable error.

    Your listing states free shipping, yet in the bidding/price area it says $50 for UPS Ground. Which one is it?

    Other than that, looks good to me at quick glance. Good luck with your sale ;)

    Sheesh, thanks for pointin that out.
    I simply used the same one from the previous sale, with changing some details, didnt see that one, thanks :)

    What do you think about the penny price? Do you think it makes it look like a scam?

    I start everything I sell off at .01, IMO would only look like a scam if your buy-it-now was .01 :p

    eBay has very strict guidelines, thinking back it more than likely got removed because he didn't have a receipt in the auction and he didn't have a sign with his seller ID in it. Those are specific requirements for PS3 auctions.

    Nope...

    If you have the PS3 in-hand you do not have to show the receipt that was for PRE-SALE orders only...

    I have seen plenty which show the pic of the PS3 in house and have been bid on and won...

    WOW...

    you REALLY need to go back and check all of your listings for eBay listingd for slyce Pc... and the slyce pc website as well..

    I found abut 10 errors... in only about 5 minutes of looking

    For starters... stop mentioning "memory" when speaking of storage.

    Double check for spelling errors... there is nothing worse than looking at a nice website, or eBay listing, which both do look pretty good, only to see typographical errors...

    also, I couldnt help but to laugh at auction for the PC for $10000 starting build?

    come on, you dont even have a 24" monitor... hell for that price you could build a monster water-cooled machine with dells new 30" widescreen.

    just my $.02...

    Thanks for your very un helpful information...
    Memory is not storage...
    People would get confused if i said this computer has 4gb of storage. they would be like, "wow, on ly for gb of hdd space?!?!?!"
    And obviously you don't have a sense of humor, the 10000 dollar pc, which costs 4000 to build is a joke... if someone wants to buy it, go ahead. Truth be told, i originally had it as a charity, where 50 percent goes to charity, but then ebay got all bitchy and said i had to use their ebay giving thing, and i had already paid the 5 dollars to list it, so why not?
    This thread is for my ps3, not my company, not my other listings.

    Riiiigghtt, and you know this because you have sold PS3's right? May want to fact check before you come out and say someone is wrong. Whenever you try to sell a PS3, you get this warning. Granted, I agree there are tons out there that don't meet the terms, but if they are reported they would be removed because they are in violation

    Well maybe you will get lucky, who knows.

    As Mlakrid said, there are tons out there that have been bidded on and sold. Those are just their guidelines and are only enforced if they catch you or if someone reports your listing because you don't have it.

    Alternatively, it may appear similar to the listing you had previously. I'd put something in there how this is a seperate unit. Most people who have more than one have to have a picture with the full quantity, which you can't do in your case.

    -edit-

    btw, mlakrid, I apologize if my previous post was a bit snippy - it wasn't intended to be that way ;)
