I don't get why people continue to be harmed over the demand. PS3's are selling for their base prices on Ebay, (60gb for 600 after shipping) and so on.

But than you think about it and PS3 is just an expensive electronic. It's like mugging people for cash.

I look like an ax murderer when I go out shopping. Nobody would dare mug me with less than an Uzi or Mac-10 in their hand. I managed to get my PS2 and my original XBox home on both launch days without so much as a devious glance from ne-er do wells.

-Virtually nobody was ever harmed for Xbox 360, even when it had massive shortages well into (late) Spring.
-And I think there is literally no case on record of ANYONE being seriously harmed specifically over Wii, even while its still being sold for well above retail on eBay, even while it's had the most massive console launch (ever?).
-Yet people are being attacked for PS3s that are barely reselling at cost- especially when you factor in shipping, tax, etc.
