    Lol that should be a hit movie coming out in May so that everyone learns about it. As I've said before and others have mentioned its the idiotic buyers on eBay who are the problem. The sellers are assholes (no doubt about that) but they are just the result of the problem itself and feed into the cycle. If dumbos would stop overbidding on stuff thats not worth it things would be better. If people learned how to read and report people who are running scams then things would be better. IF eBay created guidelines to prevent this whole, "Nintendo Wii with 14 games!" shit then things would be a lot better.

    Look up PS3's, you can find a brand new one on Ebay for less then in the shops, that says a lot right there, if people have the initiative to buy the consoles then put them on Ebay and make a VERY nice amount of money then I don't hold that against them for making money. I don't care what anyone says. And I agree that if you dont read the descriptions you deserve to be scammed, I have seen these 14 game auctions and they do say "Wii Play (contains 14 games), Then you just research Wii play and find the price it's worth.

    all we have to do is, as a community, boycott console purchases on ebay. eventually the scalpers will see that they're buying these consoles up, and not making any money rather wasting money and then will have to stop buying so many.

    i mean, we all complain about the ebay scalpers yet it's so simple to put a stop to them. if they get no business, they will lose interest in these practices.

    but i know it's going to be a hard thing to do, because there are alot of people out there who have enough money to pretty much pay whatever the hell the ebay people ask for.

    I can see where you are going with this. A friend of mine thought that he was buying an xbox when what he actually got was the box that the xbox came in.

    I hate resellers of Wii as much as the next person, but resellers have been around for a long time. There's no reason to get so upset about them. The only thing you can do is to try to outsmart them. And getting myself a Wii was no easy task, especially since I live in Los Angeles where I have never seen a Wii sitting on the shelves, so I feel your pain.

    I agree and I do MY part. The problem is that not everyone is on the same page. And I don't hate resellers. Like I said I've come to realize that they are a result of the problem and continue the vicious cycle of "High Bids and High Price". I hate idiots who make the sellers set such high prices and I despise the scammers. Trying to find an XBox 360 Elite online for a decent price is basically impossible but I'm also looking for the Premium package. I should have picked up this one deal where I could have gotten it for $250.00.
