    If black is too boring for you, try a white PS3

    So what happens when you have plenty of time on your hands along with a background in painting car bodies? You take a PlayStation 3, repaint it, and auction it off of course.

    Michal Birecki over at PS3center.net saw that the prices for PS3s have plummeted over at eBay (most of them are going for just a little over cost including taxes), so he decided to make his PS3 a little more "special" to help attract bids.

    Using the skills that he learned from his dad who owns a body shop in Montreal, Canada, Michal disassembled his PS3 and repainted it a glossy white with a mirror finish. Even the wireless controller couldn't escape the airbrush as it too is covered in glossy white.

    As of now, the auction for the white PS3 is up to $1,225 USD. It looks like the customization trick is working quite well so far.

    Yeah that is what I saw before too... Maybe someone went through eBay to have their bids retracted, cause there is only 12 bids now.

    The bidder that put 10,000 was unqualified to bid on it. Minimum of 6 rating required to bid... and he seemed fake.
