the thing i dont understand, except for the Nintendo Wii, is that there isnt shortages (as far as i know) for the PS3 or Xbox 360 so why are people going for ebay when retailers normally offer better deals, unless people are offering better deals on ebay, but then arnt they making a loss themselves? .... *confused face*

They give average sale data in the article, but don't differentiate between the type of XBOX or PS3, nor do they take into account that often games and accessories are bundled with the auctions. Anyway, as far as I can tell the PS3 and XBOX are (in general) at or slightly below retail, while the Wii is well above.

The Wii's avg price is >360's...

i am pretty sure its because the Nintendo Wii is STILL very hard to get in shops, where as like stated 3times above the Xbox 360 and PS3 you can just go down to your local retailer and pick one up.

The Wii saw huge demand because its still very hard to buy in a shop so people are willing to pay over the RRP.

I think its madness for people to buy a 360 on Ebay, you wont save much and if its second hand you probably wont get the warranty.

PS3 sales I can understand since the console is so expensive and people are looking for a deal.
