    PS3 price on e-bay

    So, I am thinking of standing in line tomorrow night and purchasing a PS3 and re-selling it on e-bay.

    Just wanted your thoughts, what do you think a PS3 would sell for on e-bay?



    Man, Friday will be a long day at work

    You may be too late...

    Realize that it is a gamble, and Sony has cut shipment numbers to both small and large retail chains. The only store willing to actually confirm minimum numbers (through their ad flyers) is Best Buy, with each store getting at least 20 of the 60 gig systems, and 6 of the 20 gig systems.

    You will want to check the new Ebay rules for selling PS3's on Ebay. They're pretty restictive.

    I got the rules on e-bay and am not concerned...but you are right, had a friend call me now and people are camped outside of the local Best Buy in tents...forget that plan as I cannot take off work tomorrow!

    Was a good thought though!

    LOL good luck, but my friend last year thought the same way. Lived in a town where he thought he'd be able to nab an XB360 easy on its debut. When he went, droves from other towns flooded his town!
