they were already camping out (tents, etc.) at the local Best Buy yesterday when i was there...if you could turn around and sell a $600 machine on e-bay for over $2000, that would be a pretty good return for a day and a half of sitting on a sidewalk...would pay for that new exhaust i want

Just wait until after Christmas, and you'll be able to buy them at regular price or cheaper. They always market this crap right before Christmas knowing dam well that kids will be screaming for them.

Thanks Sony...for keeping the commercialism of Christmas alive and well.

My sons are going to stand in line Saturday morning at around 0800. the WII is going to go on sale Saturday night at midnight..

They are also buying them with their own money....

If they want to spend their own money and stand in line themselves then who am I to stop them lol



I did however last year stand in line to purchase the 360 for one of my sons. He didnt see it coming and had no idea I got it for him..


Same thing happened when the 360 came out.. just before Christmas when the 360 was released family's were going to wall mart and buying like 7 of the 360's a week later when no stores had any and the stores were projecting there would not be anymore 360's in stores until like March you started seeing 360's on Ebay for almost $2000.00

So your saying that if we play or know about video games that we have no life or were loser's?  Horsesh$t!

That's a freaking slap in the face.

has ANYONE bothered to sit back and think about WHY people do this kinda thing?

- if KIDS deserve these toys by whining, who is running the household again?
- it's not the game system, it's the excuse for adventure. something buisness and life work so hard to destroy
- where are your priorities if you stay camped at a STORE for a couple days, but won't even go to your kids ball game or work on communication in your marriage?

man.... seems we're ALWAYS looking the wrong way. I'm an AVID gaming either owning or owned every console on the American market since PONG, but these new systems are not worth staying up for. Same old lack of gameplay wrapped in HD bling.

SHOW ME THE FUN! Not the fanfare. another yawner in the over glorified game market

What i think is amazing is that kids can come up with $2000 or $600 for that matter. My cousin who is 11 has been talking about the release of PS3 since feb. BIG ups to marketing.

) I'm glad to see that Fee-Bay is trading some coin to stop the scammers!
dont be fooled....ebay isnt giving up any coin.....all sales must be paid via paypal....3% of 3000 is 300 plus the 3% of the final auction price which would be another 300. so ebay gets $600 for each sale. im sure they average $500 considering the systems are selling between 2000 and $3500. those f'ers are making a killin


and remember these constraints on the sellers is only for preorder sales which last til fri nov 17. after that, its a free for all......scammers and all welcome
