LittleBigPlanet on eBay: $350!?

I'm desperate to get my own hands on LittleBigPlanet for the PlayStation 3, and the recent recall due to Quran references has made it an even harder wait since it now won't be released until October 27th in North America.

However, I'm not desperate enough to pay $350 for a copy of the game on eBay like a user by the eBay alias johnald214 did just to get it a week early.  Granted, I'm sure there is some kind of a "collectible" draw to it, but is it worth nearly $300 so you can hear two lines from the Muslim Holy Book in a song?!

Granted, he's not the only one that paid the price to be able to play the game early, as other auctions closed at $202.50, $183.68, $175.00, $152.50, $139.50, $130.00, $120.00...

On a side note, I was on YouTube looking at levels and came across someone that actually made a fully functional calculator "level" in the Beta for LBP:

If you just can't wait another week, run off to eBay and within a week your "collectable" copy of the game will arrive at your doorstop just as everyone else gets home from Wal-Mart with their normal, and much cheaper version.  What's your take?
