Who *didn't* see that coming?

I'm not surprised at all...
But the fact that people really do (And yes, they do...) buy the rights to wear these pixels is just astounding to me...

I'm fine with $5-$10 here and there, it keeps seizure inducing levels of caffeine out of my bloodstream, but $1,000...even $100...I could live off of those amounts of money for a month/ year.

It's incredible what people are spending...

Their "great prices" are just a label that people expect to come with Black Friday. Pity they use that to reel people in, especially with the overpriced mystery and recoloured items.

"Sale" doesn't particularly mean discounts. That's something that has bothered me throughout the whole demographic of people complaining about it here or in rl situations. "Sale" simply means that the item is being sold. o3o

As for the Halo. Why would someone ever EVER pay 1000 dollars for a pixel doughnut that isn't even frosted? scream
During the last sale though.... I wonder if that one person who did something with GC that I won't bring up (It's pretty old drama) was the one who bought mass amounts of the halo?

Wait... when did it happen?
They should just make it a permanent feature

but that would reduce demand for it

I don't even find the angelic halo special at this point its now just another item and that makes it seem more worthless to me seeing as it only has one pose!

I figured it'd be re-released during this sale, so I'm not surprised at all.
$1000 could pay for half my tuition, food for a year, or other real life expenses....Why would anyone want to spend that much for pixels? OTL.

I've decided that Thrift Shop is my themesong for these Black Friday "sales."

Limited edition
Let's do some simple edition...
Fifty dollars for a (pixel) t-shirt
... well, you know the rest ;3

Ahhh Macklemore. emotion_bigheart
If ONLY this sale HAD thrift shop prices. Gaia would've probably sold out those 'limited to 500' items in an instant.

I'll just say what I'll always say, if someone has the money and it's not needed for bills/rent/food and they really want it...Go for it!

If you need that money for a house downpayment/a baby/a monster truck, do not spend it on pixels. Pretty simple. xd

Personally I don't care.
I wouldn't buy the halo for 5GC either, it's just so ugly.
