There have been over 20,000 listed on Ebay both times that I looked this morning.

60 MB units seem to be in the $1400 range now. They were in the $1200 range a hour or 2 ago.

Wait a couple of weeks till they get rarer for the big bucks or will supply catch up by then?

BTW I bought a PS2 when they were relatively new and ended up giving it away. I'm just not a gamer but I am entertained by the antics of others.

I just found these ones via gamespot:

PS3 : 15,000
PS3 : 15,099.00

who in their right mind would spend $15,000 on a console they should take that money and spend it on a nice BMW instead or on a physicatrist which ever helps them get a life faster.

if you think that sony is only going to make a limited supply of Ps3's you must have also believed that Southpark : bigger longer and uncut was only going to be in theatres.......



they expect to sell 5 million copies of their next FF game.... you can't do that if you only sell 1 million ps3's worldwide..... (sony said at E3 they were planning on FF 6 months after Ps3's release and expects to sell 5 million units of the game.) cause that would mean every person on the planet with a ps3 would buy 4 copies of the US version of FF alone. let alone what they project to sell worldwide...

just like xbox and ps2 and xbox 360... ZERO profit margin on the console... close to 60% profit on the games and accessories...


and fyi.. maybe 840 per console but they have no idea how many and how big of discounts sony gets for contracts for hardware purchases years into the future.

$600 for a state-of-the-art video game system and a Blu-Ray DVD player is ridiculous. The Blu-Ray players alone are selling for almost $1000 each. Sony plans on making it up through software sales assuming they can be dominant in this generation of video games. I'm glad I just reserved mine early, and said "F*CK the lines!"

it was 400,000 units for the release date alone.

You must not be in a business related environment. Do you know how much it costs to make one of those? Dirt cheap. I bet they marked them up 25%-40% of what they actually cost to make one.

The price can't be compared to what a blue-ray costs retail. It's all manufacuturing cost and what the consumer (that's you) is willing to pay for it.

Anwho, I'll look into it more.
