    If I sat there and thought every time "is it worth me putting this website together", but "what if", "will I make money". Well I would be still working for the minimum wage, doing fuck all with my life. About my websites, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't, sometimes they work well better than I expected. It is all about a calculated gamble.

    yeah go for it. At absolute worst you will get your money back and a small return. Kind of a fail safe investment.

    I wouldn't base your decision off of what happened with the PS3 as you are now able to pre-order the PS4, something you couldn't do with the PS3. This means that the consoles are less likely to go out of stock.

    Nevertheless it's worth a go as at worst you're gonna just about break-even.

    I agree, I don't think there will be a shortage and they will ensure stocks meet demand this time round but I still think you will be able to make a good profit.

    Many people won't want to take a chance of missing out and others can't be bothered shopping around, so I don't think you will lose out.

    If you start asking around your contacts, I am pretty sure you could sell it before you even pick it up.

    I'm literally paying someone $750 tomorrow so I don't have to waste time trying to track one down in the coming weeks.

    I doubt I'm the only person paying this much too...I value my time way more then just waiting in line for 12 hours, or spending a month calling stores everyday to see if they have any in stock.

    Do the craiglist transaction in a police station lobby.

    A guy just sold one on ebay for a little over $700. Thats about $200 profit after fees and shipping costs. I'm kind of tempted to give a bunch of friends money to pre order like 20 xbox ones for me so I can resell them on ebay on the release date and make some quick money.
