What are people thinking when it comes to video game consoles????

Playstation 3 is selling on Ebay for 3750.00 US :eek: :eek:

Is this a case of people having more money than they know what to do with???

I don't get it. Stand inline for 2-3 days to buy a video game.......

I will buy one when I can do so for retail or less (got my PS2 as a refurb). I won't wait in line. I'll have more games from which to chose. And it'll give them a chance to work the bugs out.

The only reason to wait in line IMO is to flip it on ebay for big $$$$$.

Very happy GTA IV doesn't come out until next year so I'll have time to save up.

Two guys that work with me took off yesterday to wait in line and today to play their new PS3s. Funny part is that neither of them got one.

Playing video games is a waste of time, only second to surfing TT. People are idiots, especially people that shop at Walmart.

I should note that being an idiot is not a prerequisite for shopping at WallyWorld, but rather, it is a result.

i hate going to walmart myself, but its sometimes easier to go to one place than many to get the same stuff. for example when you go camping. i can get food, camping supplies, boat stuff, cleaning stuff and some cheap clothes that i dont mind ruining. however i avoid the place as much as possible.

on the ps3 thing, i dont like video games, but i would like to get my hands on some of those. if i only new where the next truck full will be.

i think it's ridiculous that people can't wait another 2 weeks to get one. my bro works at best buy and says they will be getting shipments in every week. i was gonna wait in line the night before to hawk it on eBay but there were 30 people waiting 3 days before camped out in front of Best Buy....that is IDIOTIC. doing what Easty said and what I will be doing is INTELLIGENT. hell i'll wait 3 months to get one...even a year.

It's not a matter of two weeks, it's a matter of this year. They're gonna be in short supply for a while and these lines are gonna pop up everytime a couple units come in. Sony's had production problems and the available units is going to be small for months. And remember, Christmas if only 6 weeks away...

where the hell did you see one going for $10k? I looked and the highest bid is not over $3k. average is about $2k

i can guarantee i won't have any bratty @$$ kids that HAVE to HAVE it for Christmas. they'll get it as soon as the supply meets the demand. they can wait and learn some damn patience. for the price i'm thinking about getting a Wii. those look pretty freaking sweet.

2 weeks after Xmas you can probably find them at Flea Markets for $50! I'll wait till then and I will still talk myself out of getting one.

I saw some on ebay for that. I also noticed the high bidder was "Ihategreedypeople123" with zero feedback. Lots of these bid-ups were the same guy.

In the news yesterday...I believe it was Connecticut. Some guy got robbed and then shot standing in line waiting for one. I assume the robber knew the buyers would have a few hundred bucks to spend....

Also related... there was a manager of a store (I don't remember which) that decided he would release the units to the first 5 people to sit in some seats in the parking lot. So they let everyone line up, someone said GO and they were to RUN to the seats. 5 seats, 100 people in about 100 feet....You can probably picture what happened. It was UGLY!!! And some people got hurt..

It goes with the Playstation 3 theme!

I think everyone standing in line was flipping them, $500 and resell for 2-4k, not bad for couple days work.

Actually there was one on ebay the morning that they were released that the winning bid was $15,099:eek:

I am sickened by this PS3 crap. People were actually getting shot, assaulted, and mugged over these things. I would ask "What is wrong with our youth in this country but most of these people are adults. People need to grow up and get a life. Sorry for the rant but this makes me sick.

My guess is it was probably a celebrity or a pro sports player that spending 15K is like spending $50. Either way it is still insane.

I was a bit upset that wakeboarding didnt work with the 360, at least my friend didnt upgrade so i can still play it on his.

I looked this morning on EBAY and noticed alot of the auctions were coming to an end and lots of the the units were only $800-$1200. They looked like they did not have reserves on them so it looks like people may not be willing to pay these high amounts for a gaming unit. Looks like there may be a saturation point to all of this.
