    There has been far too much hysteria over launches of late. Especially in the case of the wii as it can be manufactured pretty quickly. Im pretty sure that within one, maybe two weeks most people who wanted one at launch will have one. Its a bit sucky if you wanted one at launch but thats life deal with it, all of us have missed out on consoles at launch due to numbers, this isnt a new thing.

    Paying 200 pounds / dollars / quattros more than retail is just bloody stupid and causes more preorders to go because of wankers seeing they can make a quick buck out of people on ebay.

    rant over - ah thats better

    Well I'm going to chance it. I'm a 100% seller and buyer on their and I'm also verified w/ Ebay and Paypal. I'm pretty much ready to list it there. I don't intend to take less than $1600 for it . If that doesn't go well, then I'll settle for less.

    Many people's hopes and dreams of getting rich quick by the PS3 or Wii are getting hit by reality thanks to Ebay killing a lot of the auctions, even if they do fit the pre-order limit of 30 days or less before release.

    If you do a search on completed auctions through Ebay on the PS3, you'll notice that after seeing over hundreds listed, very few of them ended successfully. Even if they do, a lot of seller's accounts are being deactivated after the auction is over, when Ebay catches up to them, which will also defunct the auction.

    That doesn't even include all the auctions that ended thanks to fraud bidders, who will never fork over a cent to the sellers.

    I'm going to personally laugh when those who got their money for the auctions, get shorted their PS3 come launch date and have nothing to ship.

    Well, my intentions are certainly different. I don't plan to sell my preorder. I simply plan on selling the system when I have it in my hands.

    Same here. I am selling the PS3 and keeping the Wii!
