E3 2005 PressKits wholesale to raise funds for the RedCross
The gaming site Kotaku has an auction on eBay for a ton of presskits they got on the last E3. Some of the stuff is pretty cool, like the RE4 gun-packed tshirt and the X360 E305 faceplate, and some other is the kind that youll get on a crappy limited edition, like the GTASA stickers
The point is to raise funds for the RedCross at the katrina disaster zone.
Heres the whole list of goodies in the auction:
Gold City of Heroes Boxing Gloves: Voted most non-sensical swag item of 2005.
Devil May Cry 3, 25 to Life and Metal Gear Acid T-Shirts: Because you can never have too many game T-shirts.
Resident Evil 4 T-Shirt: A RE4 T-shirt compressed into the shape of a gun, perfect for breaking out of prison.
The Maximo Vs. Army of Zin Limited Edition Laser Cel: One of only 9,250 prints. Sweet.
Resident Evil 4 Laser Cel: Print number 15,168 of 18,850. Not nearly exclusive as that extra swank Zin print.
Xbox 360 Faceplate: Straight from E3 never even removed from it's packaging.
Auto Assault Business Card Holder: Shiny card holder filled with Auto Assault game cards.
Fable Metal Die: A big square metal die with different Fable-esque phrases on it, like Pick Evil.
Arc the Lad Paperweight: I got nothing on this one, sorry.
Metal Gear Acid and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Stickers: Perfect for that car you don't own.
Top Gear Rally Sculpture: This tiny metal sculpture shows a severed foot on a gas pedal… or maybe it's a brake. I'm not really sure.
Nintendo Ice Cube: It's clear, plastic and blinks. It wasn't so much swag as something I swiped from the bar where Nintendo held their E3 party. Shhhhh.
The Art of Guild Wars: Fantastic book featuring the art of the massively multiplayer game Guild Wars.
Darkwatch Innocence Comic Book: This is really more graphic novel than comic book, kind of cool to read the back-story for the game.
The Making of Doom 3 book: This is a pretty interesting coffee table book on the making of the creepy first-person shooter.
Bummer, some guy already won the bid with USD$500. Im sure hes goin to triple that in the next days.
Anyways, heres the Link
Thats pretty cool. I think the guy is great for selling that stuff for such a noble cause.
Yeah, too bad he gave it away for such a small figure.
He could get like $1000 for all that stuff
Thats an RE OUTBREAK File 2 shirt btw :) When it was made RE4 for PS2 wasnt even announced. Seems like the only seriously rare thing in there would be the faceplate, cause all the RE stuff can be found when you preorder the games at EB/Gamestop.
