    One of the pictures looks like the game is two CDs, but I couldn't really tell... does anyone know exactly how many CDs it is? I thought it would be more than two...

    depends on the compression used… and i have a sneaky feeling that large number of cds is used to waylay piracy… lots of junk "bits" taking up space on the cdz…

    They have pictures of the manual though, which you can't get if you pirated it...

    Winning bid: US $20,000,100.00


    I doubt they sold them they could get in ubber toble. More likely an employee that "lifted" a copy

    Even if they "lifted" a copy, they could just wait for 3 days before shipping it (so it's after the release date). It would basically make it a 100% fully legal, binding contract. I really would hate to be the jokester bidding 20million on it since as far as I can tell, that looks like a legitimate sale.

    Apparantly, the person who is selling that is pretty infamous in some of the Doom3 fan communities.

    Hey look, if you looked at EBay fees, the seller owes EBay about 300,000 bucks for the sale.
