Bad news...this is just a crude cardboard cut-out that somewhat resembles the Wii U GamePad. Good news...there's free shipping!

I'm assuming this is either for charity or a comment on the scruples of post-launch secondhand console sellers. Maybe both.

This isn't life this is make belief.

Well I least I would assume it'll came in a big box, since at least one could get some fun out of that.

Hhmmmm? Explain, please.

Basically, a bunch of trolls bid on a product for extremely high prices. Once the bidding is over, the user closes his account (hopefully a throwaway) and doesn't pay a dime to the seller.

Relax - it's a joke auction that's getting joke bids. The winner won't pay and the seller won't pay fees.

Make that over $80k. o_O

Just something to keep in mind, bidding does not equal paying on ebay. I've sold items and not received payment for them numerous times. Like a couple people said above, this is just people putting up phony bids for a laugh. I don't think legitimate buyers oubid themselves numerous times in succession like an number of bidders here have done.

DON'T BUY IT. It's actually an unofficial brand not made by Nintendo. I know it looks very deceiving, but Nintendo makes their's with quality cardboard.

So, hi. I am the user who put it up. I'm going from forum saying how this happened. I put it up as a joke at first, but then I noticed it was going up fast from its starting bid, 10 dollars. Two days later, It was at 2,000. I had no idea how, so I just watched. This morning it was at 25,000. Now it's at 90,500. I'm going to put up a video about it on my YouTube Channel, CheerioHD.

I'd be surprised if you actually receive payment for this. It seems like people are trolling you to me. Which is kind of fitting since you put it up as a joke anyways.

I love that, early on, one guy has 31 of the 76 bids and that he was bidding against himself! Talk about split personalities :D
