    Two news stories on the PS3 today, first off it's news about Europe's delay in getting the PS3 till March 2007

    Source

    And secondly news it's news about PS3 shipments cut in half for the US and Japan

    Source

    Seems like Sony aren't having a good time just now.
    Europe gets shafted and then shipments to US and Japan halved.

    Still knowing them they'd be able to fall in the river and come up with pockets full of fish.

    Cue fan-boy bitching.

    So basically, scalp that first PS3 if you can get it.

    I can only imagine what it's like over there.

    People with pitchforks outside?
    Former employees sending emails from the Land Of the Cold To The North?

    I can't wait to put up my PS3 for $1 (with a reserve price of my out-of-pocket cost) on Ebay and let the market (demand) set the final price! (Scalping it most definitely ain't.)

    Yes, Drippy. This dog shit in the shape of the Venus Demilo I'm selling for a penny is being scalped.

    Whereas this in demand PS3 that people are simply "paying what they think it's worth" is just that, being sold for what it's worth.

    Cue giant rolleyes.

    That would diminish its eBay value considerably.

    not sure why I am attempting to salvage the conversation but...

    the guy auctioning off his shit shaped like whatever on Ebay is trying to make money (getting a higher price greater than the item's fair market value - in the case of shit zero). and since that's also my intention with the PS3 it means I'm apparently a scalper. it must therefore follow that the shit auctioneer is a scalper too. thus it logically means the vast vast majority of people auctioning off stuff on Ebay are also scalpers. my question (not statement) was legitimate and if others with similar positions would care to clarify, it's most welcome. thanks.

    Oh well no loss for me. I am so over gaming. Unless there is tekken 6 on there I would't have a bit of interest.
