The Real Market for PS3: eBay, For More than $2,000

Stock Ticker: SNE

OK, we all have seen the media covering the swarms and swarms of young adults waiting in line at electronics stores around the country waiting to get their hands on the Sony Play Station 3. We had note dthat these were being listed for $2,000 and $3,000 for the voucher on eBay last month. Well, the consoles are going for north of $2,000 on eBay right now.

This is supposed to be THE big console with limited supply, but I can't get past reading about how many of the systems do not integrate well with most of the older games and how many defects or glitches there were in pre-reviews this week. It was also pretty shocking when I was in a GameStop store two weeks ago and asking about the console and the younger adult working there said to be sure to give this at least 3 large series of US shipments to the U.S. before buying it so that the first machines with all the glitches had been worked out and the returned systems were out of the system. I asked how long that would really be and the guy said "4 to 6 months." Now one thing that may trim that time down by a month or so is that these for now are being flown in by air freight, or at least so Sony claims. That was a stun to me what someone whose job is supposed to be to sell these systems.

Take a look at what these are selling for on real bids on eBay as of 2:22 PM EST Today after typing in "PS3" search on eBay items:
