    Selling on Ebay?

    Yes or No?

    I can't pass up the opportunity. Although I do feel a slight moral obligation not to, I will probably still sell.

    You guys?

    Do as you wish. Selling one on Ebay is no big deal. Your not taking one away from another gamer. Your taking away from another gamer who was to lazy and did not cover his bases enough to enable him to get one on launch day. Should have gotten in line sooner, should have gotten off their butt and reserved one. Lots of reasons why people dont end up with one. Do with it as you wish.

    No, if I somehow magically get one, I'll keep it. I am curious to see what happens though because most places I am guessing will only do bundles, plus the initial cost is high anyways, so people on Ebay are probably going to be setting a price for $1000+ easy...I am thinking there might be some backlash from the XBOX 360 ebay-selling, because those are widely available now. To each his own, but I think this year it will be different.

    I will getthe ps3 on launch. I'll kill myself dogin this, but I'll try and keep from opening it, and playing it.
    (maybe I'll open it and say, "checked it out, and it works fine!!") lol

    Anyways, then I'll check ebay, see what they're selling at, and then I'll put mine up, if the ebay prices are more worthy. lol. Talk about an investment..

    backlash?

    those people who bought a 360 for $1,500 obviously are wealthy.

    they won't protest buying a ps3 for whatever it goes for, because they have the money.

    i think in retrospect and with the popularity of the ps3 and ebay people will have no problem selling.

    ... plus with no shipments until after x-mas...

    that's just my opinion though. who knows really.

    no shipments until after christmas? lol, what are you talking about? The PS3 is schedualed to get 6 million out by march, or something like that. No way are they going to hold off until next year to sell 5, 500,000 consoles, just so ebay bidding can be nice and pricey.

    That would probably be the highest someone would pay for, only the completely desperate parents more or less.

    Honestly I don't like people that sell consoles on ebay. It is like taking a console that someone could have bought for a reasonable price and then selling it for more. Ur taking away someone's chance to get a system on launch day.

    Supply and demand along with some truly stupid and uninformed rich folks equals opportunity.

    I plan to sell 5-7 units like I did the 360. Not crazy profit margins but enough to get mine and all the games/accessories for free.

    I also want to purchase a 1080p display so hopefully the profit margins will be a little higher.

    I don't like it. It makes someone that actually wants it miss out. It's almost a little greedy, but business is business right?

    If the people that did not get one put more effort into it they would be the ones getting one. Only reason people dont get one is they dont prepare enough put enough effort into it and then cry later on b/c they dont have a system.

    If someone has a system and not you its b/c he got inline before you or per ordered his before you. The only one to blame is yourself, not the guy selling the PS3 on Ebay that you "think" you were intitled to. Just b/c somoene is a gamer does not give them presidence as far as getting a system over anyone else.

    Just because theyre rich doesn't mean they're uninformed. If they have a lot of money why should they go through the trouble of getting a preorder, let alone camping for one when they can pay some shmuck half of what they have in their back pocket.
    Can't wait to get a flat panel. I just might have to splurge when GT5 comes out. I can't just not be able to play when I'm moving between work and school.

    Keep in mind that 80% of the 360 auctions turned out to be bogus. Those selling at $3K were bogus.

    Let me explain something. Someone getting a PS3 and then selling it on Ebay is their business, and their business only. Everyone posting on this thread complaining that there will be some poor soul not getting one that wanted one is naive. The person buying on Ebay wants one...and will get one, albeit an alternative method to scrambling for a pre-order spot, or camping a store for many hours before the sale starts.

    There are many people in this country that REALLY want a PS3, but have work obligations, or family obligations and can't be at the point of sale to buy on launch day. That's where Ebay comes in.

    And also, no matter how you cut it, there are going to be PLENTY of people that want one on launch day that don't get one just from the pure fact that only 300,000 will be available on the first day. I'm sure there are in excess of a 1,00,000 or so people that would love to have one of these systems on launch day. So do the math. No matter how you cut it on a major console launch, someone will be left out.
