I hope no one spends that kind of money on the system, wait til its on shelves in stores, so you still have money for games, and other stuff

I remember when the PS3 arrived people were buying the concole for over €1000. Some people are so desperate to buy the latest console that they will pay stupid money for it.

sounds like an Apple product. Every year, they line up. Take my money for a marginally improved phone over last year.

I am sure that blind Nintendo fanboys will give even $1000 they would give anything for Nintendo

Blind Nintendo fanboys already preordered. If they didn't, they don't deserve the honor of being called a blind Nintendo fanboy.

Don't act like this is anything new. The same thing happened with the 360, PS3 and the Wii when they launched. Manufacturers never have enough supply, and when it's this close to Christmas, some parents get desperate to please their children and will pay whatever it takes to make sure little Timmy has his way.
