Want to star in a console beat 'em up? Try eBay…

eBay goodies from Bayraider, Gaming

Fancy yourself as a potential Mario? Console developer Classified Productions is auctioning off the right to appear in its beat ’em up Battle Of The Gods, which is being developed for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. According to Bayraider, the winning bidder will be the first thing gamers see in one of the game’s levels.

However, when some other game developers are offering this sort of thing for free – see Sports Interactive’s ‘Face In The Game’ competition for the next Football Manager game – you have to wonder who’d pay $4,500 for the privilege of appearing in a game that’s still being developed, even if it does appear to star Jesus as a playable character (left).
