WSJ.com - Xbox Game 'Halo 2' Fetches $265 On eBay: "Advance copies of the aliens-versus-space marines video game 'Halo 2' have already fetched as much as $265 on Internet auction site eBay, days before the official launch.
The $50 Xbox game, Microsoft Corp.'s (MSFT) flagship title, doesn't officially go on sale until Tuesday.
But in one eBay auction, an in-hand copy of the $55 special edition 'Halo 2,' which includes special packaging and a bonus DVD, sold Thursday for $265.
In a statement, Microsoft would only say it has been 'working really hard to keep the 'Halo 2' plot twists a secret so everyone can have an equal opportunity to enjoy them. That will happen when the game officially goes on sale at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, November 9.'"
