For all you ordering on Amazon I hope you have noticed that the systems are not being released until December 31st. Not to say it still will not fetch a return, however they will be in retail stores prior to this as both companies are going for a "holiday" release....meaning they will be out before gift giving season so parents can have them purchased already.

That's a date holder until the official release date is announced. If you pre-ordered a launch edition one, you'll receive it on release day.

It's not the amount that matters it's the fact that your against the concept of flipping something at a profit that gets me. What's the difference in buying a house and selling it for more than you bought it for and this? Hippy.

I would guess they'll still be selling at a premium (albeit a slightly decreased one) by that time. In any event, Prime gives me free shipping and free returns, so it would be nothing more than 10 minutes time out of pocket if I decide against the whole thing.

Conservative over here who is playing this game. Was the first in line at my local gamestop for the PS4 and, for the heck of it, put down a deposit to be the 5th in line for a XB1. Then ordered on Amazon as well

yes, if you order the standard release, you will probably have to wait a few weeks until it is readily available, at which there will be no reason for people to pay a premium(dollars to you) when they can just waltz into any store and pick one up.

I might get in line and see if I can pick one up.

for the ps3, at the beverly center, my friend got paid 200$ for his spot in line.

then he drove down to best buys, and some one paid him 120$ for his place in line.

he just went home and got his system about a week later..for free..

Dear Turktard,

That is a neat story but nothing like flipping a house as a flip requires sweat equity, what you would be doing is similar to that of scalping tickets and reselling for a higher price than face value..Providing nothing to the economy.

But hey, if you want to bottom feed for a profit equivalent to that of a hot meal from Bob Evans by all means ball on until they find you.

Should have went far far right like me and went Amazon with no sales tax bro.

They're going to do a retail release before the preorders ship out. That's where the money will be. It's asinine to wake up at the buttcrack of dawn 3 days ahead of time to get a system and then sell on eBay. Unless you're a die hard gottahaveitnowNOWNOW kind of person. But I think we've all learned from the initial 360 release. Somehow my launch 360 is still alive.

I understand its not flipping houses. It's the same concept. You said you hate people who buy consoles and sell them at a higher price. It's the same thing not everyone can flip a house so they'll go flip some electronics. Better than robbing someone, hate people who commit crime not flip something.

Hey greentard, what do u call the effort to make an online purchase, receive shipment, list for sale, pay auction fees, and ship the unit out? Ball sweat equity? Same with standing in line for hrs for tickets or dropping all ur priorities to be waiting for event tickets to go on sale and fighting the high web traffic (sometimes takes several attempts to get through) and not to mention the cost of funds to tie up ur resources (no matter how small) in the product u want to flip?

Probably didnt do too well on ur SATs, did ya?
