I waited in the freezing rain with my grandma for two weeks, and we bought two of them that we were going to give to my brother and his friend, but then I found somebody who was willing to give me $35 over the suggested retail price for both of them, so we sold them and made a quick profit. I was thinking of going to down to the mall to spend my $35 (my grandma let me have all of it - she's already totally rich) and maybe pick up some chicks and get laid. I have like 4 hot chicks that want to get down with me - I usually just make out with them, but I'm thinking if I see them at the mall I'll go all the way. They're all totally hot, I'll post pictures later. Alright, well I don't have time to be on the message board anymore tonight, I'm going to go spend some cash!!
edit: are you serious about its not a binding contract with a reserve? never heard of that
Yes because if a reserve price isn't met, it isn't suppose to be sold. Because Ebay won't make anything from final value fees. And reserve are meant for scarce items that have little hype. Reserve and ps3 are a no-no.
They will be high, only 200,000 of them have been shipped to North America...Sony will use Xmas time to their advantage and keep the prices high...since they don't know when the next shipment will be coming to North America they will keep the prices high...especially since they know so many people will be wanting a Ps3...mainly the rich folks, they'll spend 800 on the system no problem.
I went with two friends and I got two of them. We had three spots in line and sold one of our tickets for 1000 cash...no game or anything...just the ticket to be in line. We also plan on selling the two that we did get. I feel kind of bad, the people behind us had to settle for the 20 gb but they actually wanted to play them. We however, didn't even know PS3 was coming out until about 4 days ago.
I wonder if Sony really has this little amount of units to sell. A few months ago, there were worries of problems with the machine, the steep cost, and how it was just a PS2 with better graphics. Now, everyone wants one, and in a few months, the $600 price tag doesn't sound so bad after all, compared with that its going for on EBay. Could this be just a brilliant marketting ploy by Sony?
On Friday, hundreds of new PS3 owners made their own profit by reselling their $600 machines on Internet auction site eBay Inc. <EBAY.O>. As of midday, 564 had sold for an average price of $2,711, and 2,037 more units were on offer, according to eBay Marketplace Research. Outlying bids reached $30,000.
