Lordebonstone, for someone who has been warned time after time and supspended time and time on this board for being a troll, it would be wise stop your behaviour before it's too late.

This comes up a lot, so I am gonna address it.

Humor, jokes, all that, fine, no problem, I like to laugh, my sense of humor is a-ok.....BUT, making light of someone, by making absurd, ridiculous statements, isn't needed.

For some reason, this whole PS3 thing has made me a huge target here, and I don't appreciate it. I don't want this place to turn into OO, which is to say its someplace that no longer gets fun to come to, due to all the targeting and bullshit, but this whole PS3 thing, has at least recently, started to bring back some very bad memories, of a certain other forum that I no longer am a member at.

Detach.

Care to elaborate?

jblank, for what it's worth, none of my posts have been directed at you, or specifically singling out scalpers per se. I'm sorry if my posts contributed to your feeling of being under attack.

Do I support or agree with scalping? No. I personally find it unethical.

Am I going to rip into someone for doing it? No. Everyone has their own positions on the long greyscale line of ethics. And scalping video game systems, in the big picture of all the things we could be worrying about in this messed up world, really isn't that big a deal.

Don't sweat it, I never took any offense to anything you said. No problems between us and on the other issue there, we just agree to disagree, no big deal.

I have no problem with someone 'scalping' a PS3.  Heck, with the way the prices are inflated, it would be stupid not to.

I was reading about the Japan release, and people are paying US $100,000+ for them.  Yes, insanity has arrived.  If someone wants one that bad, take the profit and wait a few months to get one for yourself.

From what I see now, it seems like you can make $900 to $1000 scalping it.  That's damn good money.  For most people, that's more than a week's pay.

Let me look for the article, I think someone posted it at CAG.  But it wasn't 100k yen, it was the equivalent of $100k USD.  Dunno if it was BS or not, I have no way of verifying events occuring on the other side of the world.

BTW, I just noticed something about the "SmashmyPS3".  They are smasing the $500 version.  Pffff... they may as well, it's not like anyone will buy one of those  Tongue

Considering everything was said that needed to be said over 24 hrs ago, did you really need to post that to stir things up again?

I think we have all moved on, unless you feel the need to argue and just wanted to find someone to argue with.

They'd probably wind up making a gameshow out of the whole thing. Give people the PS3, and if they can make it 100 meters while being shocked by a near lethal level of volts, they can keep the system.

Prices are crashing BIGTIME on Ebay for the PS3. The market was flooded, just like I predicted it would be. With all the people just standing in line to sell it, you knew this would happen. You can now get a 60GB PS3 for about $1000 on EBay and if you wait a bit, it will go down even more.  thumbsup

You don't know that they will keep going down though. If stores aren't resupplied over the next few weeks I predict the prices will go back up again.

Based on the number launched vs. the original claim, we can expect 40,000 or so... I'll believe they are going to restock when I see it (or hear it actually because I'm not looking for one myself).

Jeez Hetz, you act like these people stole yours or something. Come on buddy, get off this train already. icon_smile You got yours and what people that sold them did with the ones they bought, is not a big deal. If they did good, why be all down on them? Why you guys wanna take happiness in people not getting 3, 4, 5 times what they paid for these is borderline obessive.

Is that why I got more than twice what I paid for my PS3? I keep hearing the doom and gloom, and for some it happened, but you are trying REALLY hard to (once again) poo-poo people that sold their systems, and for most of us, we fared quite well.

Show me a few other retail items where you can buy it then sell it, and more than double your price.

Also, check the link, its over $1,000 now.

Jblank, we will never see eye to eye on this subject. I don't like it because I have to compete with people who don't even want the system just to get one. Especially in the PS3's case, people who really wanted one couldn't because everyone and their brother was Ebaying it.

Yes it's supply and demand, but if that's the case the stores themselves should just start charging $1000 for the system in the first place. Everyone would bitch if that happened. I would rather give my money to Best Buy than Joe Blow who lives with his mom and has time to wait outside of a store for days.

I wouldn't, unless they were a locally owned store, but I have no love for corporations.. Man, trust me, I respect that we don't agree, thats fine, but if its one thing I have gotten tired of reading in here, is people happy that people might not get $2K+ for their systems. Why take joy in other peoples (alleged) misery? I just shake my head at how angry this PS3 speculation craze has made people, like it affected them personally, and ruined their lives. This is when people need to step back and realize this is a hobby, not something earth shaking, or huge, in their daily lives.

Also, check the link, its over $1,000 now.

Look at the bid that jumped to $1000.  'playstation3_vendor'?  And the next bid is 2 from a bidder with 1 feedback?  The smart speculators are at least requiring a decent feedback number for a bid to even be considered .

Let me just quote my other thread here:

Boy, would I love to be the person who won this bid. And man would I hate to be the guy who sold it.

Sony Playstation 3 60GB model, with 2 games and an extra controller.
Winning bid: US $9.99

 eek icon_biggrin icon_lol saywhat crybaby

I double-checked that auction, and the guy ended the auction early. My guess? They probably had a friend bid on it so they could re-list with a higher starting bid rather than risking having to sell it cheap to a legitimate buyer.

Or, the guy who bid emailed with a "buy it now" kind of offer allowing the seller to end early and skirt the ebay fees.
