i thought this was pretty funny. phil harrison got up on stage at a rock concert and tried to auction off a ps3 but there werent any takers. he ended up getting only 1 bid for it and only cuz the rock band signed it. it went for 600 euros, the starting price and the same as the shops. the 'lucky' buyer was then seen cursing his decision and trying to get other people to bid above him.
all i have to say is phil doesnt know his audience. if he made this auction for ps3forum members, i think it could probably sold it for thousands of euros.
Paul Rose, a.k.a Edge magazine's "Mr. Biffo," recounts on his blog the somewhat embarrassing tale of a Harrison-led PS3 charity auction in the middle of a Marillion festival in Holland. Harrison, who's apparently a friend of the British rock band, reportedly took over the auctioneering duties from the band's keyboardist, raising the bidding price from just above €100 to the €600 retail price as he did.
What followed was a debacle that Rose calls "one of the most awful things I have ever witnessed." According to Rose, Harrison was only able to get one bid out of the awkwardly silent two-thousand-plus strong crowd. What's more, Harrison reportedly "became increasingly desperate as it grew clear that everyone just wanted him to go away, and nobody was going to indulge his tasteless attempt at publicity."
