That will be one heck of a deadbeat bidder.

I just shipped out my PS3 this morning. I waited on the ebgames pre-order line from 11:45pm-9am a few weeks ago, I was #1 pre-order and I ebay'd it. I got $1,600 for it, which means I made about $900 for the 9 hours I waited outside. $100/hr, I can't complain.

I would not even be willing to pay the regular store price - I'm happy with PC games, also I never could get use to the xbox/ps controlers types - only reason I have a xbox is because I won it, and I ended up giving that to my dad.

i dont believe the third one AT ALL! a true numbers matching mint 70 ss 454 chevelle goes for $100,000 plus. well if it was LS6 but still, they go for like $50k plus



kid at my school sat in line for 3 days and he ended up selling his spot in line for $900, thats definitely worth it in my book, but i wouldnt buy one now anyway, they still have to get the bugs worked out, idiots

Well Dont know if ya heard, but people are getting shot over these PS3 game consoles.

A 21-year-old Massachusetts man was shot early this morning while waiting in line to buy the video game system outside a Wal-Mart in Putnam, Conn. The victim, identified by police as Michael Penkala of Webster, was taken the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester with a gunshot wound.

And this guy tops it off by earning himself the Stupid shopper award:

In Palmdale, Calif., authorities shut down a Super Wal-Mart after some shoppers got rowdy late Wednesday. In West Bend, Wis., a 19-year-old man was injured when he ran into a pole racing with 50 others for one of 10 spots outside a Wal-Mart.

It'* just crazy.

I was at a local Wal-Mart with my mom Thursday night about 11:45pm. We were in the checkout and there was a line by the service desk where 10 people who reserved their PS3 were going to get it @ midnight. And sure enough a argument broke out with some people about there places in line. The 11th person in question ended up leaving; but all who bought one had 1-2 officers escort them outside to their cars after the police briefed everyone This is worse then those Starwars people
