$2,000 Faked Copy Of No Man’s Sky Sold On Ebay

Oh well…

No Man's Sky

What do you do when you’ve got $2,000 you just absolutely have to get rid of? Well, if you don’t have a lighter handy, you could bid on a shady listing for an allegedly leaked copy of a game that only releases next month, with absolutely no way of certain that it’s the real deal.

Incredibly,  this is exactly what appears to have happened with an “early copy” of No Man’s Sky (thanks, Videogamer). Ebay seller walke-jim (who’s listing has since been taken down) apparently put up a purported early copy of No Man’s Sky for sale. The final bid hit $2,000, but it was sold. Subsequently, milkybar1983 over on Twitter pointed out that the copy is almost certainly a fake: The disk label misalignment meant that it was a printed label.

No Man’s Sky has been generating a frankly scary amount of hype as we approach its release date. What’s your take? Know any other ways to get rid of lots of money fast? Let us know!

    You know what would help? A picture of the disc!

    A misaligned label doesn’t always mean fake. Anytime a game that’s based on a physical copy leaks online it’s usually a misprinted copy that was thrown away and that misprint is the label 99.9% of the time. If the system detect the label off center it automatically gets sent off the production line to the trash.

    So without an image and more details on the auction there is no way to even guess if the copy was fake or not. Yes the linked site has it but…why dont you? EBay auctions are public so you are free to use any images.

    Was real and the “Gameplay” is laughable along with the damage control.
