FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

How To Get Video Games For Super Cheap

Posted on Friday, December 14 @ 22:55:30 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
This is actually pretty awesome. You see, someone might be the world's most savvy seller, but that doesn't mean they know how to spell.

My friend Jamie the Mad Scientist clued me in to Fat Fingers, a website that turns your correctly spelled game names into the most common typos and (this is the brilliant part) then searches eBay for those typos.

Odds are, you're the only person to find the auction, and thus the only bidder, because the seller typo'd the damn name. I just picked up Rainbow Six: Vegas for the 360 for 99 cents because they spelled it Rainbowsix. Forget the people trying to sell The Umberela Chronicles.

It's not just for games either, they'll misspell anything you care to look for.

As for me, I'm doubly pleased because I'm assuming that the inspiration for the site name came from Homer Simpson - "The fingers you have used to dial are too fat. To obtain a special dialing wand, please mash the keypad with your palm now."

What bargains can you find?
