EDIT: Alas, as you can see, the multi-million dollar bids were removed. It sold at at a measly $9,000. So here's my screenshot:

I guess this puts an end to the idea that people aren't willing to spend $600 on the PS3...

My car cost 1/10th of that. I could have bought 10 of my car for that price. Insane.

Well, MOST people aren't. But the devout will.

Most prices online are probably fake. That is, the person bidding on the item won't actually pay what they've won it for. Think of it as anti-scalper activities if anything. More than likely, scalpers will be lucky to get a 1000$ for one.

I see Bill Gates is buying as many PS 3's as he can. He really shouldn't overbid like that.

The stupid thing is that while some people are willing to pay ridiculous prices for a PS3, Sony arent seeing that money. If Sony had decided to sell each PS3 for $5,000 dollars then maybe theyd actually make profit on those things.

With so many thousands of auctions up there, I think it's pretty clear that people are not going to make the money they thought they would on these systems. Sure, they may make a few hundred extra, but there's a huge supply of incredibly expensive machines. They're just not going to sell. Once the first wave of auctions end without any bidders, people will put them up for cheaper and cheaper, hoping to score a sale. The eBay thing was so successful when hardly anyone thought of it, and people were surprised to find out how much they went for. Now, it's old news and it's a standard practice. Bye bye incredible profit! Hello moderate profit!

That gives me an idea!


1. Buy hundreds of Sony PS3s somehow
2. Sell them on ebay for 5 bucks a piece
3. ???
4 Profit!

There's probably money to be made buying a PS3 now from ebay at a (relatively) low price and then reselling it through ebay closer to Christmas the generic holiday period.

These prices don't surprise me. I saw on a X-PLay chat that one guy bought a PS3 for $45,000. Oh, and a new slogan for the PS3 I heard of from a buyer : Its the best money you can waste!

I'd buy Quad Core and Quad SLI instead if I had the money for a PS3. That would flatten the PS3! Basically everyone is buying for the hardware, yet a PC or an XBox 360 have much better games. Lol how much backward compatibility does a PC have?

And I'm not a fanboy, I have a PS2, and no X360 (however I'm thinking of getting one with the release of GoW).

You know what? People are stupid. If you weren't dumb enough to sit out in the cold for a weak outside of some Wallmart or Bestbuy, then your some complete moron who spends 9 grand on a video game that others payed $600 (which is still insane) instead of waiting a couple weeks to find one in stock somewhere...

But if you spent a couple days in the cold for a Playstation 3 to sell on Ebay for $9,000 dollars and some idiot bought it, I solute you. Well done.  :)That's a nice bit of cash there in a short amount of time. Though the conditions musta sucked.

But to the people who waited outside a store for days... or payed thousands of dollars... You certainly need to get priorities in order.   :(

That's my opinion...... slash rant...  >:(
