    Yeah I am going to make a pretty safe bet that they will not sell out. I mean they are kind of expensive, but who knows people have the money and the motivation so it could very well happen.

    Fuck penguins, man! The only reason they can camp out like this is because they are lazy and don't have jobs.

    Oh they will. I expect the first few shipments to sell out in a flash.

    I just had an enlightening conversation with an individual who may be of the same mentality as the CA PS3 campers. Such masterful use of profanity as he came up with so many words to call me stupid because I think reselling preorders is a bad idea... along with a lesson on the fair market on why it's good for him to attempt to get 10 preorders in and sell them for $3000 a pop. What a dick.

    You would think it is the jobless folk who can spend the time to camp out for a console a week and a half before its release are the same people who can't afford a PS3 in the first place. Ah welfare.

    That line is now up to around 10. I posted about it in a thread awhile ago. They've been in line longer than 9 days. They started on Tuesday morning at LEAST. My gf drove by and spoke to the guys, they are very nice, they just want the system. One guy took his vacation days, one guy quit his job, etc.

    Another thing, people yelling about them not being at a "midnight" location. There is NO WAY I would camp out in West Hollywood. That area has hoodlums, pimps, trannies, and a VERY unsafe area to wait in line. This Best Buy shopping center has all the amenities, and cops coming by to check on people. Rather have that than any other place if I was camping.

    Now this is digitpress probably the best game collecting related site on the net so a lot of us including myself go to some pretty extreme lengths for gaming... but I feel I speak for a lot of people when I say....


    Anyone camping out nearly 10 days in advance for a game SYSTEM that isnt even going to be rare in a few months needs a life. These people that already have setup camp for the 16th are losers... there is no way around it. It's one thing to camp out one night in advance (i personally wouldnt do it)

    but over a week? whats the deal? How do these people even buy a ps3 they obviously don't have a job to get fired from.

    At least they brought those giant marijuana plants to keep them entertained.

    Wow... never thought anyone would camp out for a PS3, even less for days! As mentionned, for a new system that will be available for a while, I don't feel to absolutely have one at launch day is necessary. But that is just me

    i think id be more prone to get a second job and work for the 10 days...the money youd make from working two jobs would likely cover the majority of increase in costs for an ebay purchase, and you wouldnt have to poo outside.

    unless the whole 'pooing outside' thing is what youre aiming for...

    Was thinking the same thing, but its not unlikely that you can make $1000 - $2000 profit selling it on Ebay (totaly depends on when the next batch of PS3s are comming). You cant make this amount of money with a normal job.

    Are you on glue?

    PS3 will sell out until March or April of next year, it will be a LONG time indeed until you can just waltz into any store and buy one.

    Preorders are going for over $3,000 on eBay and some Wall Street analysts are estimating that eBay prices will get as high as $10k/unit near Christmas.

    Japan will be even worse, as they're only getting 80,000 units at launch.

    most are in the 1600-2200 range, but yeah, theyll sell out.

    10k per unit by xmas? i think analysts are overestimating the number of people that plan to keep their systems. sure theres limited release, but the number of people with 10k to buy a ps3 is probably pretty low vs. the number of people that dont have $600 to spend on one and have a preorder in being fairly high. we will see i guess, but id expect prices to spike the first few days then taper off.

    but then i could be completely wrong, as happens often enough, and the ps3 investors could make a killing.

    I doubt $10k so much, where did you get that information WanganRunner? I'd say absolutely $3k at the most period, and even that's way too freaking much it's pure stupidity.
