Flappy Bird was the a staggering success on the App Store — until the developer decided to remove it, likely due to a massive amount of feedback it was generating, and thus the increased stress. However, that wasn’t before many people had it installed on their devices. Now,
scalpers entrepreneurs are selling their devices that have Flappy Bird installed for insane prices — some in excess of $5,000.
Browse to eBay and search for “flappy bird iPhone” and watch what comes up. Every device from the iPhone 4S to the iPhone 5s is available, and at varying costs. Some are as reasonable as $700, while others are as insane as $10,000. And it is still climbing.
