On Nov. 17th, On Ounchs paid $1,700 for a 60 GB Sony PS3 console, two games ( Resistance: Fall of Man and Marvel Ultimate Alliance ), and an extra wireless controller. He hasn’t open it. He hasn’t played it. He plans to sell it on eBay. However, unlike all the other PS3 eBay sales, On plans to sell it for $1.00. Why is he doing this?
I am a nice guy and I want to make someone’s Christmas a little brighter this year.
I want to make history and, in the process, maybe make an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and other television talk shows. I was initially going to list this PS3 for $1 million, with 90 percent going to charity, but found others had already gone that route. I wanted to be unique and, quite possibly, give a PS3 to someone who might not be able to afford it otherwise.
To get a chance to bid on On’s PS3 auction, you have write an email to Santa and explain to him why you should be on his good list. So far, On has over 300 people on the list who will be able to bid on the PS3 at sometime before Christmas day. First bidder takes the PS3 for $1.00.
On’s giving has not gone unnoticed. Local Vernon TV station CHBC featured On during last night’s evening news. Here’s the video of that segment.
