Default OT: I got my PS3, pics later (merged buy/sell PS3 threads)

hey guys i just came back from a local wal mart and i asked if they were gogin to have any ps3;s. They told me that they were not getting any but then later on as i was walking around in the electronics section i heard two co-workers talking about how they 6 ps3's in the managers office but they werent going to put them on the shelves.

So i contacted sony and they said they cant do anything, then i contacted the wal mart head office and they closed now...any suggestions?

They're probably reserved. So if you didnt reserve it then no, they don't have any available to you. That's probably what they meant

What outside until somebody walks out with one and tell them to give it to you. If they don't shot them in the back of the neck.

Sony will pay for the guy's funeral.

Everybody's happy!

I got 2 360s from KMart when they first came out, gave the guy a Benjamin a piece. Sold one on EBay, which almost paid for the first one.

A group of teens shot a guy because they wanted his AI jersey and he refused to give it up. He was paralyzed for life. He was on a ventilator. Ventilator malfunctioned and he got brain damage. They recently took him off and he died. AI is going to pay for the funeral since he was such a huge AI fan.

I think that was Ced's inspiration for that remark.

So wait you paid $100 a piece for X-Box 360s? Or $100 in addition to the actual price?

Wal-Mart doesn't do preorders and as far as I know... retailers aren't allowed to hold the merchandise for themselves like that. Not in demand items, anyways. I'm sure it happens but they're still not supposed to.

I was at Target earlier today and there was a line of 8 people/groups of people along with a sign Target had set up. That particular store was only getting 8. The first guy in line sold his spot for $1600 cash. The 4th guy in line sold his spot for $1200 and somebody else was buying a spot for $1000. Haha. That's just the spot. Doesn't cover the cost of the system.

The Sams Club here is getting 2, and there are 3 people in line. One guy told the other two that if they tried to get in his way he'd kick their ass.

Yeah i can pretty much guarantee that they can't hold it. I work at Toys R Us and we're not even allowed to BUY ps3's until the second shipment cuz of the high demand

Correct on the latter. Actually I sold the second one for $735. So I only really netted $135 off the one I kept, but at least I got one early.

How about not being a rat you little snitch.

Should have pre-ordered your PS3 like everyone else.

Or go work at wal-mart you slacker!

Why the hell people feel the need to get the system early and deal with this bs I'll never know. Especially for a system that will only have 30 games released in its first 8 months of existence.
