First of all, I despise it when people resell systems to gouge people that actually want to play the thing. But I won't get into that.

What I want to know is why you think you'll get $500 for each Wii. A lot of stores are getting 100+, some stores as much as 210. By all accounts people are going to be able to walk in and get one on Sunday, and Nintendo plans to have steady shipments throughout the holidays.

Video games (and video game systems) are just getting ridiculous.

some people are tremendous morons to be paying that much for a PS3 on ebay.

When I grow up and have that much money to waste, I will spend it all on the most expensive hookers and drugs known to man.

Hey MFFL, your PS3 is an illegal listing, the new rule is you need 50+ positive feedback to sell it. So don't be surprised when your auction is removed.

If there's a market for it, do it.

People are morons. If they will pay, then why is it a big deal?

I don't care for such machines, I have enough Genesis games on the computer.

Why the big hype? Why not just wait until they come down in price?

I remember the PS2 coming out in NZ, started out at like NZ$1,000, now you can get them for like NZ$220. Just wait nerds, wait.

supply and demand. Any idiot willing to pay 3 grand for a lousy console deserves to part with his/her money.

I agree about the Wii; it won't be too hard to buy it retail. Nintendo's going a completely different route this time and I appreciate them trying to save their customers headaches.

What is the point of getting a ps3 only to sell it at twice the amount?

Really ridiculous.

If I ever b&tched for gifts like a PS3 for christmas like so many kids do these days, my parents would have beat the sh&t out of me, and I'm not even kidding.

People who purposely buy systems just to rip people off to make a quick buck are lame human beings. Shame the gamers who enjoy playing them cant get one because some money hungry prick wants to sell it on ebay to make a profit.
