In the eBay listing page, the man said he put the video game up for sale to punish his son and discourage him from smoking dope.

"I know smoking a joint isn't the end of the world, but if you can convince me that he deserves the gift, then I will end the auction," it was reported.

The father sold the game to an Australian buyer for $9,100.01, PC World reported.
