I do feel to many people have more money than sense. Okay it may be a must have item to these people but paying $800 is just ridiculous. Wait a month or two

I do hope the bidders are just the people selling the item to peak interest because they I have lost faith in people. I also hope some of the people bought multiple PS4 and the PS4 does not sell out so they then have to sell these items at normal prices

"but these more outrageous listings don’t have any bids."

Hopefully there's a limit to dumbness.
Anthotis  +   943d ago
It's because all the Xbox fanboys have suddenly seen sense and want their mommy's and daddy's to buy them a PS4.

That, is why such a great strain has been put on Sony to sell more.

I wish there was a limit. According to Einstein

Sadly, you are right when you say people have more money than sense. I've read of people spending over $1,000 on Facebook games and makes me want to bitch slap them.
I'd rather wait a few months and use the extra $400 for the awesome games coming out

You can't judge people view on value.

It's the old saying, a fool is easily parted from his money.
Reverent  +   943d ago
@nevin, hell yes you can. $1000 dollars on a Facebook game? Yeah, that person doesn't deserve to spend money.
famoussasjohn  +   943d ago
Now I'm debating on just turning around and selling my PS4 immediately, and buying one and stocking up on games with my profits. If they're willing to spend that much, then it's time to take advantage of the idiots.

I dont get why someone would be able to buy it now for 800$ but couldn't go reserve it before they sold out. Clearly money is not an issue for these people, I guess they were just too dumb to go reserve it before and pay what it is actually worth.

It seems people with money to burn like that are used to paying too much for things or just throwing money at people till they get there way.
wsoutlaw87  +   942d ago
worst part is, if they just went to walmart its 400 for release day shipping.
madpuppy  +   942d ago
I may be crazy but, I could never stick it to someone like this.
iistuii  +   943d ago
Hope it continues, I'll stick mine on if idiots wanna pay that.
HammadTheBeast  +   943d ago
I'll sell mine for $600, wait a few weeks then buy it for $400 with a bunch of games lol.

Nice to know your moving out, and will get new roof over your head there, "buddy"
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   943d ago
You and the five idiots who agreed with you need to get off n4g and pick up a book. Obviously what I said went right over your heads. Guess I should keep it simple.

I don't think you understand the meaning of that saying.
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   943d ago
Don't bother explaining to these idiots. They obviously never set foot in a class room
FamilyGuy  +   943d ago
You really thought internet junkies were going to get this reference before assuming it was about trolling?

Come on man
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   943d ago
Lol yeah no shit
Reverent  +   942d ago
His reaction to the criticism however, was very immature. There are definitely better ways about explaining the joke.
Roper316  +   943d ago
I have 2 preordered but they're MINE ALL MINE MUHAHAHAHA
cyclindk  +   943d ago
Hock those suckers, make yourself some dough
Roper316  +   943d ago
Already have plenty of dough but I don't have a PS4. So if I keep the PS4 I will then have both. I am not the type where I feel it is never enough money, there is only 1 thing in life you can never have enough of and that involves the fairer sex not money or a gaming console.

i can buy 2 ps4 with that amount!!
HammadTheBeast  +   943d ago
Yes, but you have common sense. Others are not as fortunate lol.
ziggurcat  +   943d ago
i don't get why people would go out of their way to pay double/triple the price for a system when they can just wait a few weeks after the launch, and probably get one.
T2  +   943d ago
Dont buy these b.s. deals ... Just wait a few weeks and walk into walmart anywhere outside a major city ... Works every time
FamilyGuy  +   943d ago
I don't know about that man, it took me months to find a PS3 on a store shelf after its initial launch.

PS4 parts are suppose to be more common so manufacturing should be faster this time around. It should have a healthy stock and restock quick but you never know.

I just know I would never pay double the retail price.
ziggurcat  +   943d ago
yeah, it's completely not worth paying *that* much extra for a video game system.
PSjesus  +   943d ago
Buy it now (free Shipping!!!srsly 1200$)
Rivitur  +   943d ago
dcj0524  +   943d ago
Reminds me when the ps3 was on sale for $10, 000. Lol.
jobboy  +   943d ago
amazon italy has some preorders left...if you want to give it a try

You will probably end up paying $600 - $800 in import fees and taxes with the system.
Gamers_United  +   943d ago
Wow idiots paying 800$ lmao not worth it first of all
Convas  +   943d ago
If you buy any console above their launch price, you're a fool.
wishingW3L  +   943d ago
not if you're desperate.

edit: forget it, I see there are many bidders already. Those people are definitely idiots.

I must be crazy to buy a console for that price. I could build a high end PC with that money that will be way better than the PS4 period.
InTheZoneAC  +   943d ago
maybe to you. if someone gave me the worlds best gaming pc, I'd sell it and buy a ps4
Rivitur  +   943d ago
But with the money you get back from selling the PC you could buy a PS4 and another high end PC.
RevXM  +   943d ago
The worlds best gaming pc?
Holy hell no Id keep it, Id sell my old computer to get a ps4 instead.

Only thing better than the most insane spec PC is a car... Id trade it in prolly for a Golf VR6 Syncro only with a torsen differential and given the vehicle is in prime condition and not a tired pile of rust... Oh and with a sunroof! got to love sunroofs...
InTheZoneAC  +   943d ago
I sold a wii, listed it normal price, it sold for $550
I never did sell a console other than that on launch

This year I have some ps4's waiting to go on ebay for $425, and let the people do the bidding...

I've never met anyone that paid a crazy amount, not sure if they'd ever admit it, but those people are out there...

Some people are just completely bonkers.
what if I put used boxers on there for 100 and see if someone will buy em
cyclindk  +   943d ago
What size are they?
T2  +   943d ago
If they are used I will give you 125 lol
PigPen  +   943d ago
The Wii started something selling out for two years, now it has gotten ugly.

supraking951  +   943d ago
sad thing is people will pay these prices but wont pay for the Xbone $500 price tag LOL. Sony won
Jaqen_Hghar  +   943d ago
this is not sad, at least not for a man. MS has given us achievements and overall online network competition. A man thanks them for that but they haven't done much else. A man like Halo but they didn't need MS to make it. A man isn't really into their other IP and their hardware is always filled with a bunch of proprietary crap. A man is just glad Sony didn't copy their analog sticks.
gamertk421  +   943d ago
Guess I shouldn't have cancelled my PS4 Amazon preorder, lol.
ziggurcat  +   943d ago
why did you do that for?
Cmk0121  +   943d ago
if you have 900 to drop on the console why didnt you preorder for half the price day one?
KwietStorm  +   943d ago
Lol don't bother using logic. It's obviously counter productive in this scenario.
ala_767  +   943d ago
I am a PS4 fanboy.... But I am not willing to spend $800 on it.... Better I will wait for 2-5 months as soon as it is available!
T2  +   943d ago
I agree but u wont have to wait5 months ... Bestbuy still takes preorder if you desperate
ala_767  +   943d ago
I live in Asian country.... there is no Bestbuy.... Here, Online shopping is uncommon.... Retail Purchase is the best option :)
T2  +   943d ago
well walmart in a rural community will work too, I walk in every time a month later...
tweet75  +   943d ago
ill be playing grand theft auto V probably till the end of 2013 at least. I can wait till sometime in 2014 to get a ps4.

KwietStorm  +   943d ago
I can't wait. So I will be doing both.
KwietStorm  +   943d ago
But nobody actually has a PS4 to sell yet. This is just ridiculous.

PigPen  +   943d ago
That's probably the reason for the sell out. I remember waiting a year and a half to buy my Wii. People was buying them out and reselling them on ebay.
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   943d ago
Haha DAMN! If they're going for $800 this christmas, i'm selling mine, sorry. i want it REALLY badly, but I'll take a free $400 from an idiot.
shadowmist13  +   943d ago
I wish I had that much money,I would upgrade my pc,and wait after launch and buy ps4 with watchdogs,but 800$ for a ps 4 is outrages
FanboyCrusher  +   943d ago
What idiots! Seriously. You're willing to drop $800 on the thing but you're too stupid to have dropped $50 on a pre-order on it a week or two ago?
TidePride  +   943d ago
Walmart,Target and Best Buy still have them for preorder.

How stupid are people these days to not look around, if they actually get bids before selling out on these sites?

Edit: NVM I see there are a few idiots bidding on these, it's tempting but I'm keeping mine.

A lot of you are thinking about this from the perspective of people who always buy games and game systems by reserving them first. A lot of hard working or preoccupied people are going to be utterly oblivious of two new console coming out until the holidays roll in. They will be nagged by children every day for weeks leading up to christmas and the first place they will go is to the store then inevitably ebay. They may hesitate at the prices, but they will submit and submit yes at $800+. Not everybody watches E3, and other game conferences to see what we see and when to get it reserved. A lot of people procrastinate or simply miss the window also.

Once again like I've said before.

Never underestimate the power of stupidity.
KingOfArcadia  +   943d ago
And fanboys! At this point, I think Sony could announce they were going to sell crap on a stick, and you'd hear every Sony troll in world say how much they want one.
