Final Fantasy XIII Chocobo Codes Are Hot Commodities On eBay

Did you sign up to get the Final Fantasy XIII Chocobo avatar item from Microsoft? A code should be sitting in your e-mail inbox. Didn’t? Codes are already on eBay.

 

The chocobo avatar accessory, which Microsoft gave out for free, can cost up to $99.99. Shipping is free! Surprisingly, people are buying these. One code sold for $50.

 

Special thanks to Lendingo for the eBay research and tip!

    Wow…watch these things be normal marketplace items after a month or two. I can’t believe people are actually buying this. Unless you play FF XIII this doesn’t look like any chocobo I’ve ever seen, just looks like a flying chick. Needless to say I’m using mine currently.

    • Aoshi00

      Shameful people are selling free stuff, this isn’t even pre-order bonus.. Who in their right mind would actually pay $50 for avatar accessories? I don’t even feel like buying the 2010 glasses for 40 MS points (like 50 cents..) even though they are kind of neat. I actually used the code last night, checked e-mail before going to sleep and was happy to see this. But yeah, it doesn’t even look like the chocobo on Sazh’s head, cheap imitation.. so I went back to use the Christmas present one looks cooler.

    Wow. I haven’t used my code (still refuse to make use of the 360 Avatars), but I didn’t think it’d actually be worth anything. Really… wow.

    These scalper jackasses can go frak themselves.

      Why? They’re selling something that people want. It’s basic economics. More power to them. It’s the less-than-intelligent people buying them that have the real problem.

    Whoa, I kinda wish I’d thought to sell mine now!

  • Aoshi00

    BTW, I’m very excited my copy of XIII finally arrived on New Year’s Eve (along w/ Queen’s Blade lol), the box is shiny and beautiful, guess it’s like a late Christmas present. Going to sink my teeth in it this weekend. Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

    • Kris

      I expect full reviews of both! Happy new year to you too!

      • Aoshi00

        Will do, you’ll hear me ramble from time to time as I get further into them :) Finishing XIII is my priority for now.

    It amazes me how stupid can be a person…oh well, it does not surprise me at all LOL…

      I wonder how many actually didn’t know they can get these for free and others just want it NOW. Still, fifty to a hundred bucks…hey, more power to them. As much as I’m for digital stuff, no way I’m gonna use a fraction of my paycheck for a digital chicken unless it lays golden digital eggs!Supply and demand, I guess. How many opportunities I had to get something cool for free or cheap only to kick myself later when it reaches near $100?Ah, Treasure Figure Collection: Gunner…

  • bladesonata

    Wait, so if we just post over and over again until we hit the 100th (because people dont seem to be posting) is that cheating?!?!?

      There is no contest here for a chocobo code, I believe you’re looking for Destructoid which kindly linked to this story.
