16 to 32 ps3's wtf dude lol
and only for personal use wtf you gonna do?? build a ps3 wall
This guy wants to sell them in his local town I am sure where there not available.
no, i'm not selling them, i'm using there processor cells for doing some custom stuff, but you can't buy just the processor/gpu.
might just try and find 700 people to give me $10 each or something instead of buying them myself!
Lol, Not to short
The thing is, is that Sony and Microsoft both lose money on each console they sell. I heard awhile back it was around $100 US each. They make the money back on games, accessories, online, etc.
So it's going to be tough to find any kind of a discount. I have a few wholesalers here in the US and you don't save but $50 or so on a console.
Jammie, is that gamer partying there?
Theres nearly NO profit margin in Video games, NO matter what you sell, you only make a few bucks on each item, Hardware or Software wise.
Your not going to find one even at true wholesale for less than $30 or so off retail. And that's if you sell in volume.
I'm using one of the largest TRUE Wholesalers in the US, that's how I know this. I'm currently paying only a few dollars below retail, cause I dont sell 1000's of them.
Hope that helps.
I'd be interested to find "wholesale" ps3 prices as well... but as someone already said, the big boys lose $$ on every sale. Hmm...
Is buying them used not an option?
might be your best bet jamie. esp if you only need the processor.
Why dont you just go around buy ps3s, take the processor out, and return it saying it doesnt work?
they'd notice they were missing =P
If there isn't any chance of getting them cheap, i'll just try some "fund raising" tactics to buy them *sigh* it'll be worth it though!
Could buy them used, but it isn't that much cheaper. Might aswell get new ones!
As i said, i'm not selling them, i'm using them for bits!
jammie, I don't think you are going to be able to get a discount, a significant one anyway, on that quantity (not new anyway). I would go for second hand or just check out ebay or something.
It'd be for a highly credible and prestigious academic institution, with world class research taking place by atleast 4 of some of the best minds in the entire industry. I'm sure a company like sony would like to be honoured by them for helping them out, at such a low price too.
However, i'm not one of those researchers, and i really should talk to them about what i want to do. They would highly benefit from what i want to do though, and they know it!
welp, since you already brought it up, might as well just tell us now or we will all think your wacko =\
Just post some ads on CL saying you're buying broken PS3s. Chances are it's not the processor that's jacked anyway.
There's not much more worthless than a broken PS3, do them a favor and buy it from them for $30.
Sony won't cut you a deal, they already make a loss when they sell them for retail. Razor and blades model.
I have a source that will give you 10 PS3's for $210 a piece.
If you are interested just send me a PM nd i will give you his contact details.
