I can't believe how much this is selling for on eBay. I listed mine for xbox one and it sold within minutes.

My question is.. would anyone like to speculate on what the next collectors edition that will cause a hysteria over? Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector's Edition? This is fun!

EDIT: I just got a warning from Ebay from pre selling too early. See later post. It looks like they are still allowing the transaction though

How do you get around the pre-order policy? As in, you can sell an item that is more than 30 days away from release?

I actually didn't realize there was a policy until after I listed it. Basically I took an auction that already sold and did "sell similar" not realizing it put it in the video game memorabilia category. After it listed I noticed and tried to change to category games but it wouldn't let me. Then 10 minutes later it sold.

I am waiting until 30 days out to sell my PS4 copy though.

ebay allows presales
UPDATE I JUST GOT THIS EMAIL FROM EBAY:

After reviewing your eBay account, it appears that you haven't followed our Presale policy. A list of the items we're concerned about is available further down in this email.

We realize you may not have been aware of these guidelines, so we haven't removed any listings, or taken any other action on your account. Instead, we want to provide you with this information so you can thoroughly review your listings and make sure they follow our guidelines.
Listing presale items isn't allowed unless they meet the following requirements.
- The listing guarantees the item will be available for shipping within 30 days of the end of the auction or time of purchase.
- The listing states the item is a presale, and will be shipped within 30 days of the date the listing ends.

The presale listing requirements are designed to allow members to buy and sell items that aren't available yet and to protect members from a potentially bad transaction.

To learn more about eBay's presale policy, go to:
http://pages.ebay.com/help/polici...-sale.html

Please understand that you are selling "Fallout 4 Pip-Boy" game, which has a release date of November. As it's beyond the 30 days limit to ship the item from the purchase date, eBay fears that the transaction would be left without any protection and may lead to poor trading experience. Hence, we suggest you to sell this item only if you guarantee to ship it within 30 days of purchase date on eBay. We appreciate your co-operation.

You can relist this item after 14 october to meet eBay's guidelines.

Please don't feel that you're being treated differently, if you find other similar listings active on the site then we assure you to educate all our sellers on this policy as soon as possible. For quick action, we ask for your support by using the 'Report Item' link from the listing page.



We've observed that it's the first time you breached eBay policy.



Please make sure that your current and future listings follow these guidelines. If they don't, they'll be removed and your fees won't be refunded. It could also result in additional actions, including loss of buying and selling privileges on eBay.
