    I remember when the PS3 first came out they were bringing insane prices on Ebay.

    Here is a link telling what the PS3 actually sold for when they first came out http://www.gamespot.com/articles/ps3-ebay-prices-soar/1100-6161967/ they sold between 2 thousand to as much as 15 thousand a console.

    I dont see why the PS4 wont bring more than it retails at online giving that it is far more advanced and high tech than the PS3.

    I contacted my local Walmart and they told me you have 2 weeks to return the PS4 if its unopened and you have the receipt.

    So you have nothing to lose except your time waiting in line.

    it won't sell high, because before people couldn't pre-order like you can now with all the sites online. You had to actually camp out at the B&M stores. If you look right now, it's only a couple hundred more at the most.

    You're not going to make a profit off of it like you did with the PS3. Sony has gone full throttle and is leasing warehouses to keep up with preorders. There was a Reddit AMA of a Gamestop manager who said the PS4 was being preordered at a 5:1 ratio versus the Xbox One. I'd rather keep the one I'm getting the one at midnight.

    It's rumored that 3rd party sellers on Amazon and most sellers on eBay will have ghosted auctions and listings to prevent high prices and competition against big box retailers. We will see what happens I guess.

    Where there is demand, and the demand can't be satisfied - prices go up, way up ;)

    We'll see where it goes, otherwise I'll just lock me and my six PS4's up in a room and cry.

    i forgot all about the ps4 i just looked it up and the pre orders are way higher on the ps4 than they were on the ps3 im going to buy one now thanks.

    you said we have nothing to lose but when the ps3 first came out there were a few people killed that just purchased the ps3.

    we have our lives to lose...........

    Just to keep you guys informed on how I did on the PS4.

    I was able to buy 4 of them and I made around $90 profit per console after the fees.

    They definitely did not sell to the magnitude that the PS3 did when it was first released.

    Do you guys think the Xbox One will have the same margin in profit that the PS4 did?

    I will admit this is a pretty nifty idea. I did this once or twice when the Xbox 360 came out, but never managed to get thousands for it. (I am a little annoyed now!)

    Like people have said, where there is a demand, there is money to be made!

    I had no problem receiving payment from the winning bidders in any of my auctions.

    For the people that were new to ebay and had low feedback I just simply canceled their bid and added them to my block bidder list before the auction was over.

    I just had to post as I pre-ordered a PS3 in hopes that the prices would be as ridiculous as the Xbox 360s were at Christmas time. Long story short it sold for around $700. If I remember correctly, that was about the average price they went for. The days of system launches causing mass craze over the USA are over. Seemed to have been a mistake or incredible marketing plan on Microsoft's part, but nothing like it has been seen to that scale since then.
