    Holy Freakin Cow! You gotta see this Ebay auction

    This is stunning! $20,100.00 for a Playstation 3 on Ebay? Some people have more $$ than sense!

    Yep, but if you have the money and you really want it, why not? To some people, $20k is pocket change. If they really need a PS3 before anyone else, go for it.

    I don't need one that bad! I gotta give the seller credit though, it was a good $600.00 investment! Wish I'd done it!

    ALL of the unrealistic bids are (0) history Ebayers. I doubt anything more than an overpriced second chance to the forth bidder down (who actually needs positive feedback) will result.

    Did I mention a man lost his life today over a console?

    Supply and demand. If someone is willing to pay $20,000 for that, means that it's worth that much for him.

    Hey people pay alot of money and wait for year(s) for Sachs or Vanilla, and they are "just bicycle".

    The seller bought it at Walmart. At least this way he'll spend some money somewhere else and balance out how he screwed up the economy by shopping there. At least thats what I hope. I dunno, maybe he'll spend all 20G's at Walmart.

    I was going to pick one up and sell it on eBay to pay off my student loan. Too bad I didn't get one.
    Brilliant!

    Interesting bid-history. Why was 6736cop's bid going up all by itself? It almost doubled with just him bidding. A shill?

    The top four bids were from unregistered members. How the hell does that work?

    Looks like most of the legit bids ended around $1200.

    This has been happening on a number of PS3 auctions. Seems some guy, or a group of people, have taken it upon themselves to **** with PS3 buyer. If true, I'd like to buy the guy a beer. A big, delicious beer. And maybe a cigar. If s/he is old enough.

    The people standing in line to buy this garbage are fools. And anyone willing to hurt, steal, kill (accidental or otherwise) for this stupid toy should be sterilized and chained up in the public square for ridicule.

    They hacked.[edit] On, second thought, suspension seems more likely.

    The shooting incident happened in Conneticut.


    Really sad.

    - at least one of the units has a US$1,000,000.00 starting bid - definitely a joke...

    - i get a real kick out of eBay... best entertainment value ever, and a boon for con artists, fences, and counterfeiters...

    - but then i've seen some crazy stuff over bikes here on BF (like one ss/fixie thread about whether a six-year-old low-end steel frame bike w/a mix of 30-year-old parts was worth $600! about the cost of a new PS3 console in a couple months! hahahahahaha!)

    not if they sell it on ebay and make a good profit. then a day or two in line would be a good payoff. but just to play with it I would never stand in line.

    Yeah, but it's strange that someone smart enough to accrue such wealth is dumb enough to play video games.

    Let's say you buy at $600, sell at $900. $150 dollars a day good money? Not bad work, if you can get it ,I guess.

    But there have got to be better ways to make a living. I'm sure there is a two unit buyer's cap.

    Buyers are getting pwn3d and don't even realize it.
    On Digg, I read that PC Gamer magazine gave away some 7500 dollar computer to the first few people in line camping and who were guaranteed to get a PS3. In exchange, the people signed a contract saying they will never buy a PS3
