I was browsing the PS3 section and randomly looked at the auction ending soonest.. O.o
People who pay these outrageous prices for stuff, rather than wait a few months, are some of the biggest wastes of DNA on the planet. I hope this jackass hooks up his PS3, and it catches on fire and burns his home to the ground. It could happen too....look at the Sony laptop batteries. :o
Yeah, that would be funny... in a demeneted way... still funny. Some people have the money to waste, and probably get some high from paying so much for a something that might not work.
a jackasses money will spend just as good as a smart guys money. God bless the stupid Sony fans of the world...they make me rich.
...of DNA. While it's totally insane for someone to buy a PS3 for those crazy prices, hoping someones house burns to the ground because they bought one is sick. You need help, fanboy.
or would pay that much NOT to have to wait in line. Could be a celebrity, athelete, CEO, who knows?
A celebrity could pay "YOU" 1000 to wait in line for him and still save 7 grand. So I doubt it's a celebrity or anyone else. I think it was bidded up on purpose, and would up being bought by a friend and the transaction will never actually take place. Also, what will the seller do it the good old shortage monster rears it's ugly head and he do get a PS3 as promised?
So if you don't buy a retailer extended warranty (which I don't think you can since you didn't buy the system on the receipt) you're stuck with buying Sony's extended warranty. Does anyone know if there is one and how much that costs? I guess if you spend so much on a PS3 on ebay, you'll have money to buy the warranty, but still. Sometimes you wait forever to get a repair from the manufacturer.
I'm willing to bet that the person who made that bid has no intention of buying it. People make fake bids all the time to piss people off.
A fool and his money are easily parted.
see this guy that have sold ps3 + 2 games at 651$ and he spend 900$! http://cgi.ebay.ca/Sony-Pla...
i couldnt be more jealous, just imagine that, you could buy a 40'plasma a 360 a wii all the best games for both and replace the money you spent in the first place back into the bank. all for free!!! OMG - there really are some stupid people out there
I don't aprove this. But, what do you expect? It has become a tradition for people to take advantage this situation everytime a new console is launched. And I have a feeling this one will be worst than all the others, since this may me the worst console launch in the history of all consoles. So, expect lots of ebay exploits.
This is not an exploit of the person, the price is clearly there. If their parents taught their A$$es patience as a child they wouldn't look like such idiots. The seller is using standard business principles, if something is rare the price goes up. "How much are you willing to pay" is truely the question.
And both are going up for sale!! I'll make plenty of money to buy a Wii and games plus more 360 games!!! Ahhh to rape, I mean help Sony Fanboys!!!!
The ebay rules state that you can only sell on PS3! Hope you can get $1,200+ for it!
You would have to be a total retard to pay that kind of money for a game console.
dude if you look at the bids, some idiot took the bidding from 2,500 to 4000,5000,8000, than 9000 no one even was bidding at the time he just randomly decided to freaking up the bidding from 2,500 to 9000!! what a douche, I hope their name is karen (sarcasm if you know dane cook, you understand that)
Hey, what's up Kare' :)
lol nice...haha Karen is ALWAYS a bag of douche :)
