    Scored a PS3 at local store

    Just stopped in to say hi to a friend that works at the local GameStop and he said he had one in stock, only the 20-gig system, don't really have any interest in playing it--It was a spur of the moment purchase.

    What do you think I should sell it for?

    Agreed, put it on for barely less than 1000, dump it BEFORE christmas. I would recommend moving it fast. I know the hype around here seems to be dieing down fast, and if you don't get rid of it before christmas i don't think most people will care, they'd rather wait till they can get on in store for cost.

    Good luck.

    Yeah, I was just looking at them on E-Bay and unfortunately it seems they barely reach $500 for a 20-gig'r, maybe I will just return and get money back...

    Word is they'll have more released before Christmas.

    Looks like they have lofty goals for the year, still:

    We've come a long way from my Atari (5200?) and early Nintendo.

    Too many people buying them just to put them on ebay + too few people willing to pay much of a premium on ebay + people wanting mainly the $600 model even if they'll never use the wifi or extra hdd space = far more supply than demand on ebay, at least overall. You may get a little luckier in this final week before Christmas.

    There will be more before Christmas, but trust me, they won't be hitting their goals. If they top a million before the end of the year, they're probably doing good.

    TranslatioN: Jim has been tired of listening to Sony lie about this product for two years now, and grows more tired when he see the lies continue when the facts say otherwise.

    At the very least, I now have a half-decent BluRay and SACD player.

    Yeah, I think I will wait till' this weekend and throw it up on e-bay, if no takers, then I will list here for what I paid for it, if no takers...then back to the store it goes for a return/refund.

    I use to be big into console gaming, just no time for it right now--can't justify a $499 paper weight
