    PS3 EBAYers

    I truly became sick and disgusted when I went to ebay to view all of the pages upon pages of hoarding jerks that took pre-order spots just merely to sell them back at exorbinant prices to real gamers. Specifically the EB/Gamestop ones really pissed me off because Gamestop has a policy of cancelling pre orders that are sold on Ebay (new policy). So I called Gamestop corporate last week and asked them about it.. they said to e-mail them any information of people selling on E-bay as it was AGAINST their policy and the pre-orders would be CANCELLED.


    I wrote down the information for approx. 100 -150 of the listed auctions that were from a Gamestop or an EB. I also included pictures and sent them to Gamestop corporate. I received an e-mail back a few days later after a followup call I received this.


    Dear Mr. XXXXXXXXX,


    Gamestop places a great deal of importance on customer service and allowing customers to obtain the product which they desire. Due to this, we have instituted a policy that each household may order only 1 (one) Playstation 3 and Wii. Unfortunately, we have found many persons whom attempted to circumvent this policy and order more than one system. Those persons with duplicate pre-orders at different or the same store had all of their pre-orders cancelled. Our policy also extends to selling on Ebay as selling a pre-order on Ebay is against the core value of allowing all customers to obtain a product at MSRP.

    Thank you for sending us the information from the pre-order receipts of systems that are attempting to be sold on Ebay. The information has been recorded and we are in the process of cancelling the respective pre-orders. We are also closely working with Ebay to inform the bidders and remove the auctions.

    Thats is awesome, and I am happy to hear that something is being done. I honestly don't want to try to fight with people who are getting a PS3 to just sell on E-Bay. I want to fight against people who wants the PS3, not to sell it. I hope something is done about this. It was ridiculous with the 360.
    My internet at home has been down for three months, life sucks.

    If it's true great job. But then again those PS3's that get freed up by preorder cancels might just end up going to new ebayers on launch day. Never ending battle. I figure the best chance to stop ebayers is only if Sony makes some kind of request to all the auction sites.

    Stop being a SOCIALIST!!! Or a COMMUNIST!!! This is a capatolist society. People can sell an item for any price the market will pay. That is the way it works. If Game Stop cancled pre-orders, without first telling the customers in writing, THEY ARE BREAKING THE LAW.

    My uncle is a Federal Judge, He knows the law.

    if people want to pay $2000 for an item that retails for $600, let them. That is the way it works.

    wow whissle blower. You cant make a dent in the PS3 Ebay sales. Once the 17th comes no one has to post up their sales recipt from the store b/c they will have pictures of the actual system (well the box) and then this whole issue is a moot point. No one has to say where they got their system from once the 17th comes.

    I couldnít agree with you more gmsisko1.
    Seriously tho does it mean I am not considered a true gamer or PS fan because I choose to find a way to pay for my system?
    Everyone is entitled to their opinion of whatís considered appropriate when it comes to reselling a pre-order.
    however I donít think its right to say someone is not a true gamer or PS fan because an opportunity was taken.
    If you want to blame someone go after the people that are paying those high prices as they drive the demand not those that supply it.

    The issue is not the people selling the systems, its the people who want to pay that much for one. If someone wants to pay XXXX amount for a PS3 who are you, we or anyone else to say they cant? Anyone who is selling a PS3 on Ebay did not steal one from a true gamer. All they did was get a pre-order or get in line before somoene else did, they deserve to do what they want with it. They put in the work to get the system. Just b/c someone is a gamer and the person selling it on Ebay is not does not make the gamer "intitled" to the system. If they were to lazy to get in line before hand or not ot bother w/a pre-order then who's fault is that?

    Wow..You are probably the most hated person on eBay now. You must have a lot of time on your hands and are bitter that you didn't get a pre-order to start such a bold campaign?? Your my hero!

    Uh, huh. Show me evidence of a law that prevents them from initiating a rule in their policy, without notification through writing. Mr. Lawyer

    I can't believe all you nerds are rewarding this ******* with praise and thanks --- shows that he is not the only loser on this board.

    Kid, is that how you like to spend your free time? Crusading for Gamestop/EBGames in a fight against the capitalist market? You're not even on the ****ing Gamestop payroll ---- that is incredibly sad. You obviously:

    1) Have no life at all --- no girlfriend, no wife, few friends except the ones that come over for LAN parties once a month ---- and consequently spend massive amounts of time online on the weekends, probably 90% of the time jerking off, and the rest of the time apparently fuming over the eBay PS3 auctioners.

    2) Are an incredibly malicious, spiteful individual who brings jealousy to a whole new level.

    3) Most definitely used to be the little kid in homeroom who would tattle tell on everybody, even people who didn't do anything wrong, and would later on in the day get the **** kicked out of him by the class bully --- you'd then go crying home to mommy and mommy would march up to the school and yell at the principal, threatening lawsuits.

    4) If you are under 17, then you must be one of the poindexters of your class --- I have an image of you already. If you are over 17, then you probably are making very little cash at a lousy job and are probably dumb as rocks.

    Anyone who would spend their free time recording 100's of people's receipt data in an attempt to get pre-orders for a gaming system cancelled is really ****ing retarded. I mean, we're talking seriously handicapped here.


    And to all of you in this thread who support him, you are probably just as sad and poindexterish as he is. Why don't you all get each others' contact info, organize a group orgy, go **** yourselves til you're exhausted, then go back and play Kingdom Hearts on your PS2 on your ****y old 20-inch TV. It would be time much better spent than how this fool just spent his weekend.

    I'm not one who has anything posted on eBay now, but this is the ****ing saddest, most immature, most retarded thing I have heard of someone doing in at least 10-15 years. Congratulations, p*nis-wrinkle. You've official established that you have the smallest c*ck in the world. Why don't you stop trying to ruin other people's completely legitimate endeavors and go satisfy your microscopic d*ck with some David Hasselhoff movies?

    I can't believe what I'm reading.

    You guys are a bunch of HATERS! This is America people... a capitalist society. We have the right to seek enterprise.

    Now, I don't advocate one person buying all the pre orders at one spot and not leaving anything for the rest, but I do support people who, like myself, got a pre order and decided to sell it.

    Has it occured to anybody that some people do not want to wait in line for hours, deal with crazy crowds, risk being shot, and what not? Some people would rather just pay someone to do it for them. $2000 isn't nothing to some people so why can't I profit from that?

    i talked to a guy at my local EB last week and he said that they have a bunch of people at corporate that check for receipts on ebay and cancel their pre-orders. however, i am guilty of selling three 360's last november (had to buy my hdtv somehow) so all i can say is power to all of the ebayers. just know that if your listing doesnt end on day 1 you wont get that much money. for 360 - day 1 = $1800, day 2 = $700 and it just goes down from there.

    People are stupid to list now anyway. Paypal freezing funds, low value etc. I'd wait till after launch to make 400-500% profit. Forget now, waste of time and effort. LIST PEOPLE LIST. List all your pre-orders. I will list on launch day thus, if you all list now, the better for me and my other E-Friends listing.
