    VERY CLEVER! EBay limits sales of PS3 console



    EBay limits sales of PS3 console
    By RACHEL KONRAD
    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    SAN JOSE, Calif. -- People pining for the sleek PlayStation 3 gaming console might find shortages on eBay as well.
    The unfettered online marketplace for such items as Elvis memorabilia and Ferraris is imposing restrictions on the PS3, which is expected to become one of the hottest holiday gifts when it hits stores Friday.
    Only established eBay Inc. vendors -- those who have racked up comments from at least 50 previous customers and have positive ratings of at least 98 out of 100 points -- can list PS3s before Friday. Each vendor can list only one PS3 per eBay account.
    The listing must include a photo of the preorder receipt, and the seller must guarantee shipment within 30 days from the date of purchase.
    Before Friday, PS3s can be listed on eBay only in auction formats -- not as "buy it now" items.
    Potential buyers, trying to avoid long lines, rain checks and empty-handed sales clerks Friday, already have bid up PS3s to $2,100. The suggested retail price is $500 for a basic PS3 with a 20-gigabyte drive.
    The restrictions also apply to Nintendo Co.'s competing Wii console, which goes on sale Sunday.



    Hats off to Ebay for some clever forsight here!, now add the words alienware to this kind of thing and ebay will limit even more dodgy selling.

    Lines are going to be ridiculously hectic. I wonder how may stores already have their systems.

    that the second time within the last few hours someone has posted this. this has been known since people were putting their Gamestop pre-orders on ebay a month ago.
