Flappy Bird iPhones selling for $1,000 or more on Ebay

Long live Flappy Bird. 

The infuratingly difficult iPhone game may have been taken off app stores by its creator, but it isn't stopping diehards from trying to get their fix. Since its removal from the Apple App store and Google Play, dozens of iPhones with the game preloaded on them have popped up on Ebay, and there are some insane bids for the items. 

Currently, 65 bidders have driven one iPhone up to more than $90,000, with dozens more that are listed on the auction site for $300 or more. 

The game's creator, Dong Nguyen, warned Saturday that he would be removing the game in 22 hours from app stores. Users who have pre-installed the game can keep playing it; however, its removal from stores prevents new users from downloading it.
