Seriously .. think of the best game you ever played .. how much did you buy it for .. then look at what people are paying here. They are trading on dreams not a reality - games often perform below expectations upon release. Items sold here can be bought / earned in game .. I strongly suspect when you get the game and after 50 hours of playing can upgrade your ship to a $250 ship - they won't be sold for $250 any more.

I had an alert from itunes that my account had downloaded a free game from an international IP on the weekend.and to reset the password if it wasn't me... I had used the same old password on both I'm pretty sure (though I setup a Ubi Soft account only as I needed to play a game years ago).

Well that's just it though isn't it, the voters are people who think other need to know what they think is cool and want to influence the list. Doesn't that make them likely to proper-gate their votes online to influence others and to make themselves 'look cool' when the songs they voted for do well'. Isn't this similar to people who put vote for X signs on their lawns?
