Here's the dealio, I have a couple agreements with about 10 local pawnshops that if someone walks into their store looking to sell their old Playstation 2 console to offer them 15 for the console, even if its broken, and I'll come by every month and buy each one for $25.00 - I also run a couple ads on CL and the newspapers, even on Facebook that I buy broken PS2's and working ones. I make about a $25 profit on eBay and when I list one for sale on eBay they will literally sell for $55.00 in 20 minutes. I noticed it was 2 or 3 people generally buying all of these, 2 in CA and 1 in NY (See: http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISA...anton1181&ftab=AllFeedback&rt=nc&myworld=true ) and they are buying hundreds or even a thousand of these a month. Eventually I contacted this person and said I usually have about 30 consoles a month and asked if he just wants to buy them from me through PayPal so I could bypass eBay fee's and he does without any hesitation, and I did that for about 4 months. Further information on one of the people is that they make a Really nice living doing whatever it is that they do. I've been grinding on it for about 2 months now and I've got exactly 100 playstation 2 consoles. He of course, won't say what he does with them - and I don't blame him, but I really want to see if I could get a larger cut on these consoles. Here are some theories: - They are being sent to Mexico, Japan, China, etc preloaded with games put on a hard drive with a soft mod. - They are being used as small computers and gaming consoles installed in cars. - Connect a network adapter and being sold in 3rd world countries as small computers used for hacking. (no idea.) - People in Asia are big fans of the PS2 and they prefer the NA version of the system and they are rare so they pay good money for them. - Some part in it is being purchased by some manufacturer who is using them in something they manufacture. So, if you have any idea WHY they are valued and where, please let me know if have any more information on this because I can't seem to find a specific answer.
