    So today was the launch of the PS4 in Europe (or parts, not sure). I managed to get my hands on 4 of those beautiful machines through family members and paid ? 399,- per console.

    Sold 3 of them for ? 625,- per console (people were asking + ? 700,- so it's a good price). All of them sold within 3 hours this morning, the buyers picked up and the money in my pocket! The profit in total was ? 675,- till now and I still have one left so we have a dilemma. The bids are up to ? 920,- as we speak.

    What should I do, sell it or game a month later? I'm considering selling it but perhaps you guys have something in you to make me keep it :D

    I know deep inside... I'm already having regrets to know that I sold the other 3 for "just" € 625,-! Poor me :(

    I guess it's time to just let it go, € 950,00 for now, I'll wait till the morning and make a decision.

    By the way for those that are interested, the PS4 isn't worth all that, it's still just a Playstation if you ask me. Must admit that Killzone kills it once more, never seen such graphics before.

    Yes, I'd sell them while the hype is still up as once they become more readily available then the price will drop dramatically down to the retail price. You're already getting a good return so you mind as well sell them at a profit while you can.

    Sell it. Most game releases have graphics of the latest PS3 releases. Look at how the graphics looked at the beginning of the PS3 release to now. The same goes for Xbox 1. Give it at least a year to see any type of huge graphic and game improvement.

    New console launches are always great opportunities for some good ol' hustling. :D

    Just remember to preorder them in time.
