Recent video game console sale numbers from ebay have been published on punchjump.com.
Sales for Nintendo Co.'s Wii and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 decreased, while movement for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 has increased quite a bit.
No wonder...all the sony boys have finally found that the PS3 is worthless and now they are all selling them :P
u fool, they are talking about the average price of PS3s sold, meaning they couldve sold 3 of them for $587.06, $587.07, $587.08 and the average price of them is $587.07
Funny as hell
The PS3 Droid news week, 6 days of sh!ty news one day of good, back to the start rinse and repeat.
all 360 fanboys realized there 360 doesnt compare and are now buying ps3s
When will you all learn its not about who system is best(we all know its the PS3)its about having fun playing games...
Bubbles for you!
I like your two bubbles Leon. They're sexy.
how about this your both morons
your attempt at calling them morons has failed...
"how about this your both morons" is a statement that implies you are offering something to their morons...I guess which they own or something...using the abbreviation "you're" or simply using "you are" would have done wonders to make you not look so stupid...you, being the poop, affectively tried to tell puke that it smelled bad..
You also fail. It's not an abbreviation, it's a contraction.
haha damn it...I knew I would screw up something...
It will be different next week; you do know what Ebay is right? is this a solid way of knowing if its a good thing items are selling on Ebay.
#10 agreed i thought to myself the other day why would a 360 or a Wii owner be posting Ebay sales as being completly positive in past Ebay sales postings.
it just needed a great game and ninja gaiden is it even though it hasent come out yet i gess there prepering for it.
you know i could just sit here and go on and on about how much better the PS3 is than the 360 which everyone knows already, and how the 360 has last-gen tech and how it breaks down all the time, but I'm not going to do it. i'm just going to say have fun playing the games, and leave it at that.
ps3 will be fine.use mine daily.the haters will see.but good comment.
I have a bigger E-D#ck.
BTW who gives a crap about Ebay sales they mean as much to gaming sales as Japan does.
Haha nice comment.
Up and down every week no point in posting this type of sh*t, are Sony fanboys running this site now?, come on xboxers lets restore the balance.
It's seems good that more PS3's are selling on ebay. But also a lot more people who bought them retail are also selling them. I think you can look at it both ways. I don't pay much attention to ebay sales because of this.
the fact that a system is being sold more second hand makes it better?
if the second hand buyer bought games but since the company is still making consoles then they would need you to buy 500-600 dollars worth of games to help make the difference per console made.
Wii is now being realized as a fad and no one wants to pay $400 for a 360 + $50 for live + $100 for a wifi adapter, then if you want $200 more for HD DVD. ALL that to have your console break after 2 weeks then get a refurbished console that breaks after 1 week!
pay $400 on a console, $50 for Xbox Live and $15 for an Ethernet cord long enough to hang a horse and have the best online gaming experience ever.
pay $600 and watch a Blu-Ray movie...........
looks like I'm hanging my horse
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!Youre exactly right,stupid xbots are so unsecure.TheMart youre saying the 360 is selling better WORLDWIDE,hahahahahahaahahaha! !!!!Are you on crak or something?Japan, the 360 is nonexistant and in Europe the 360 is a complete disaster,so please stop posting lies.
UHHH it's always up and down with Ebay, one's is up the other is down, the other one is up the other one is down, etc...
Xbots, QUICKLY hang on to something tightly, here comes one of the MANY BIG waves.
You see xbots I care about you robots. I really would hate to see you all of you drown in all this good Sony news lately.
because thats all your ever going to have.
Big wave?.. ok, if this is one of the big waves, Sony is indeed doomed.
alien technology, POS3
Oh look who's here. I was looking for you yesterday in the comments section, in wake of all that positive BluRay news. I know how much you hate it.
Alas, I couldn't find you. I'll try again, maybe I was just too early.
Since when a product being sold on ebay at a price lower than at the retail store is a good thing? People selling their PS3 on ebay cheaper than what they bought it for... is a good thing? Last time I check people selling at ebay are one of the following:
1) Retailers selling to make a PROFIT... profits at less than retail price?
2) Someone that does not want it anymore and want get some money for it.
Selling at ebay vs selling at retail stores.. it's not the same... in case you didnt noticed. lol.
"you know i could just sit here and go on and on about how much better the PS3 is than the 360 which everyone knows already, and how the 360 has last-gen tech and how it breaks down all the time, but I'm not going to do it. i'm just going to say have fun playing the games, and leave it at that."
Weird how you could say somthing but not actually say it... I will take your advise though and go play the games because I actually have some to play.
A better breakdown of the sales would help...Hopefully a lot of you realize that not just private owners sell stuff on ebay...Some of these "middle" retailers purchase items in bulk, with the intent at beating regular retail prices...that is how tons of companies use ebay to make a business out of just reselling retail items...this works with pretty much every electronic from cell phones, to you guessed it, video game consoles...
If anything this simply signifies how price conscious most buyers are right now...a price drop of the ps3 is what most buyers are looking for, and even paying 15 bucks less online beats the trip to best buy, Wal Mart, etc...
I would bet that most of these purchases are not of used ps3's, or even NIB ps3's from private parties looking to quickly off their purchase...but more from the hundreds of electronic stores that purchase large quantities from wholesalers (or even retailers that have overstock) for less than MSRP, and sell them slightly over what they paid for it to make a quick profit...without a breakdown of where all these consoles were selling from, its hard to tell...
I wouldn't use the argument that the ps3 is selling for less than MSRP though...The 360 is also, assuming most purchases are for the 399 w/hdd package...No one buys from ebay if its the same price as where you can get it anywhere else...that defeats the purpose of the entire site...
who is dumb enough to buy used 360 on ebay?? they goin to cost you extra money to ship it with the redlightsofdeath..
More important is how much NEW consoles are sold. Then the 360 wins with double the marks of the PS3 world wide. Ebay ain't important in that view
In other news Xbox 360 caught selling crack to children whilst the PS3 takes yet another orphan to Disney Land.
Or something to that effect probably, if I didn't use this site for work I don't think I would ever come back (no offence N4G admin, its the users that irk me)
posting this kind of article has to be the dumbest "support" for sales I have ever seen...let's think about this for a brief second.
sales of ps3 on ebay are higher than other consoles....this means that there are NO SIGNIFICANT sales attached to ANY consoles, because ebay is NOT A RETAILER!!!
if someone buys a ps3 on ebay, that means an owner of a ps3 just SOLD theirs.....so it adds ZERO to the install base of ps3's....does anybody else realize this BASIC AND ELEMENTARY concept????
I laugh when i read some of these comments by people that think increased ps3 sales on ebay is a good thing for the ps3 or sony......sales of consoles on ebay means ABSOLUTELY ZERO!! it only means that there are a higher number of disgruntled ps3 owners trying to sell their ps3's....and the ones that are selling new ps3's simply bought them cheaper at a store and are turning around and selling and so the install base is th exact same!!
So let's get this straight; when the PS3 is outsold by the competitors on Ebay that's bad, yet when they sell more the perception remains unchanged?
Got it....I guess.
It's being put up as a Buy It Now but it's not selling. Look at the price it SELLS for not listed for.
Anything to give PS3 owners hope. :-/
