A second eBay listing claiming to sell a Microsoft Xbox Durango development kit was posted today from the same seller of an identical kit that appeared on eBay yesterday.
The listing claims to be for a development kit for the next-gen Xbox and features the same non-descript image of a computer tower with no further description. The item comes with powercables and a wired controller.
eBay seller Superdae sold what he claimed to be a Microsoft Xbox Durango development kit yesterday for $20,100. The listing for the second development kit has reached $14,100 after 22 bids, with six days to go.
When we contacted Microsoft for comment yesterday, they avoided confirming or denying the legitimacy of the development kits and provided us with the following statement:
"Xbox 360 has found new ways to extend the console lifecycle by introducing controller-free experiences with Kinect and re-inventing the console with a new dashboard and new entertainment content partnerships. We are always thinking about what is next for our platform and how to continue to defy the lifecycle convention."
