lmao, it seems the only reason people bought this console was to sell it on eBay. Good luck to any of you who manage to snag one tonight.

Yeah I read about this on business week http://www.businessweek.com/ap/financialnews/D8LDNT6G0.htm

I thought it was hilarious, I have to wonder if the same thing will happen with the US launch. It would be interesting to see if people will have learned not to pay insane prices for consoles since the 360 launch.

150??? :eek:

If they averaged in the $500 range, they spent $75,000. :eek:

Of course, if they could sell them at $2000 each they would bring in $300,000. :p

I doubt they'll get anywhere near that though.

I'm glad I didn't go for this now. It'd just be a waste of time if they went for any less than $200 over retail. Ebay and paypal would probably take out around $70-$80 if it went for retail price so you'd actually lose quite a bit of money...
