My PS3 with 2 controllers and 2 games went for 980 on ebay..luckily it didn't meet my reserve.

Retail thats like 900 bucks.. I can't believe it only went 80 bucks over retail. :-t

I blame Costco for slow shipping and ebay for making up unreasonable rules on the fly :-t


That's a buzzkill; have you tried craigslist? Or is that not worth it?


I put it on craigslist for 1000 bucks...i frickin paid 813 bucks for it! You'd think it would go for a little more.


Not when you can find them in stores now. The market isn't flooded with them or anything, but I've found a few without even really looking. Someone who wants one should be able to find one fairly easy, be able to walk out of the store with it, and start playing that day, rather than pay extra, hope it's legit, have to wait for it to ship, and hope it gets to them undamaged.


I'll sell you mine for 1k...there aren't any here that i've seen.

Why would I buy yours? I just saw 3 of the 60 gig version and 2 of the 20 gig version today. If I really just had to have one (more like if I had the time to play it), I'd have bought one and be playing right now. :-D

You'd think if they wanted people to take a $2,000,000 ebay auction seriously, they'd have used spell check.

At least you didn't wait in line for 9 days like some idiots.

I got the Wii last week and I have to say it really does live up to the hype. Those sports games are super addictive and fun to play. I just really hope I don't break my nice TV because I could completely see how you could throw that remote across the room.

Zelda is awesome. It is a must play for fans of the series. I also picked up Red Steel and I didn't like it at first. I was all over the place with the guns and I felt like I had zero control. I read up in it and I may need to tweak my controller settings. It looks great on TV so I will give it another shot once I beat Zelda. ;-D
