Today’s Gaming Daily brings about more amiibo madness on eBay,
Okay, now this is just getting flat out insane. When the defective Samus amiibo sold for $2,500, we all chuckled warmly at the ridiculous sell, and continued on with our lives. But this latest gesture involving one of these NFC figurines is about at mind-blowing as it gets, thus making me wonder if I should try my hand at getting one of the defective figurines for myself before they’re discontinued.
Ebay user usmik_72rcplxb had the wherewithal to post his legless Princess Peach amiibo figure for sale, probably expecting results somewhere in the neighborhood as the aforementioned Samus figure. It ended up selling for over ten times more, with the final bid going for $25,100. What! Seriously, I can’t even more than any even can’t right now!
Microsoft now accepting Bitcoins for digital content.
Microsoft has come a long way from its old days of confusing Microsoft points. Boy, was discontinuing that crap the best thing they every did for Xbox Live. They took a huge leap forward in the world of digital currency today, adding Bitcoin to their list of accepted formats of payment. You can now transfer up to $1000 using Bitcoin per day, though there’s a $5000 maximum on each account. Keep in mind, once you transfer funds using the service, you cannot refund them, so be tactful about making use of this feature.
That about wraps it for Thursday’s Gaming Daily. Always keep it parked here on Nerdist for all of the juicy video game developments, and to chat about our beloved medium, I’m only one tweet away: @Malik4play.
