The vast majority (like 90%) of people they were talking to on the radio morning show as well as the news this morning were planning on selling their PS3.

just found out the Circuit City near me had 100 PS3's available for sale AND they were also holding a contest to GIVE AWAY 5 of them.

you could sign up at 7 pm last night for the contest and the drawing was 10 pm...if I had known that, I would have hung out for 3 hours on the off chance of winning the drawing, but oh well. I'm not that concerned about getting one for some time, if at all.

What I may do is pick up Gears of War for the 360 though

btw, be sure to let us know how much you sell the other one for (I assume you're keeping one of them)

I'm selling both. one was a 60, the other a 20. I listed the 60 for a BIN of 2450 (free shipping). I've seen them selling in the 3k range, so I'm hoping someone will latch onto this one. But it was 9AM wed. it wasn't a surprise to me, as it was on radio ads too.

ahhh.
so how long were you in line for?
let us know if you do get the asking price or if it goes lower. and since you're selling both, let us know what the 20 goes for too

yeah, so the two together, you're probably going to sell them for AT LEAST 3500, meaning 2400 (minus tax) profit...if it was 2 days in line, that's 1200 profit per day, not too shabby.

well worth taking PTO and sitting outside
