Guitar Hero 3 Wii version sells for $9,100 on eBay

A Canadian man claims to have recently caught his 15 year-old son smoking pot in the backyard with two of his "delinquent friends." As penance for the boy's misdeeds, the father listed for sale what he called the "Holy Grail" of unopened Christmas gifts, Guitar Hero III for Wii.

"I am now finding it hard to justify rewarding him with this gift after he so greatly disappointed me," writes the brooding parent on his Ebay listing page. "I know smoking a joint isn't the end of the world, but if you can convince me that he deserves the gift, then I will end the auction."

Consequently, the $90 game sold for $9,100.01 to an Australian buyer. Apparently, the majority of people sided with the dad.

"I am still considering getting him a game for his Nintendo," adds k_lid, the seller. "Maybe something like Barbie as the Island Princess or Dancing With the Stars."

Highly profile Ebay auctions are often purchased for abnormally high prices by buyers seeking publicity.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
