Vita Pre-Orders Fetching Over $1K on eBay

The king is back. After the troubled launch of the PlayStation 3, it’s fair to say the PlayStation brand has suffered its fair share of knocks, but the PlayStation Vita proves that Sony still has the magic touch. Officially the sexiest handheld ever made, Japanese gamers will be lucky enough to receive the Vita months before anyone else, but you can also be a part of the December madness – as long as you are willing to pay top dollar.

Wowzers, I'm glad I pre-order mine this morning from Play-Asia:

They imported to Europe :(

I'll have to keep an eye on eBay for a good deal.

Looking at my funds, I'll have to wait until the Vita launches in my neck of the woods rather than import. Super excited for the PSV :D

Go to Gamestop and put down on it tell you pay it off. before it come out and if you downloaded games from PSN you can put them games on there that what the Sony guy told me.

This may not be the popular choice among people here but, here is the link for the 3G+WiFI version:

@Blacksand1: Do you mean PSP games from PSN? If so than, yes you can do that ahead of time and it will work on the PS Vita.

Vita is a sex machine!

This pre-order hysteria reminds me of the $5,000 PS2 that was sold on ebay just after the PS2 launch. Insane!

blumatt2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

Yep, and that's why I'll be buying three PS4's. I'm gonna keep one and put the other two up for auction on eBay. There's always rich people who are willing to pay crazy amounts of money so their kid can have the newest toy out. haha

I'll be "Oprah rich". (Zach and Miri Make a Porno reference) lol

decimalator2921d ago

Man, I should pre-order a bunch and then sell them on eBay. I'll make MILLIONS! Ok, maybe hundreds.

I did this at the PS3 launch, got 3 of 'em. One for me, one to sell early, and one to sell closer to Xmas.

The one I sold early sold for like $4K. The one I sold close to Xmas sold for $500, and it was a 60GB which retailed for $600. Go figure.

That type of thing is all about timing.

pangitkqb2921d ago

I bought a second Wii at launch and sold it to a guy a few spots behind me in line and doubled my $$

Zir02921d ago

Same thing happened to the PS3 at launch, then in a couple of weeks after the early adaptors had gone they were everywhere in huge numbers, it even happened with the 3DS.

Don't know why people don't learn lol
