Be quiet and go join the Sony scourge and plague the land when it comes out... They of course have a shortage, but they are OUT before PS3.

Everyone knows Microsoft ment for a sell out? Did anyone not know that? It was stated over 2 motnhs ago that they would make avaliable many less concoles than the demand, just so they can "sell out" on the first day. Shops were also given a quota of 20 concoles that had to be sold in North America, all concoles (20) had to be sold on the day.

"Wow, they sold out!" isn't really true, more like "Man, Microsoft just like to put on a little show" would be the right phrase.

I work at wal-mart and my store had 44 systems (most of which were basic systems) and sold them out in 20 minutes. We won't get more till after christmas. That still doesn't justify why on earth people would be willing to pay $1000 or more on e-bay to buy them. Those people are just flat out stupid.

1000 dollars is truely stupid...

And yeah, it's a ploy all concole manufacturers are using, so they can call thier concole a sell out. I'm sure that Sony will do the same with the PS3, and I'll defninitly get to my local shops early, or order it or something before it comes out...

I wanna be one of the lucky people whpo get it on the day

Or maybe it's just that the premium console costs about $500 to manufacture!

Do you think rich people care how much they spend? No. They were dumb and didn't pre order so people are making over 100% profit off of dumb rich people who want an x360 now rather then waiting like the rest of the world. I say who cares let these people profit off the rich.
