Who the hell would bid, let alone pay $5100 for a game console?

Honey, if I had $30,000 sitting around to blow like that, it certainly wouldn't be on a PS3 system. :)

But ya know, it would be nice to have that money.

Isn't that crazy? I love the guy looking for 100K. Let's take a step back here.

Many idiots. Hence why my boyfriend waited in line overnight for one.....

He's not an idiot though, he's going to sell it to someone who is....

I was wondering about him and how his endeavour went. Then I was wondering if I was seeing one of his auctions.

Seems there are lots of new accounts jacking the prices up, hope he gets a real bidder.

Unbelievable.

And to think that in not even a year, it will be half-price surely.

I heard on the radio this morning that there had been a fight between customers who badly wanted the machine. I think one he is in the hospital, they don't have more information on his conditon...

I think I will keep playing with the Psx 2 for a couple of more months Coreen.. ;D

Sonic!!! I didn't know you were in that community.

I'm with you. Cheaper, and they'll get the kinks worked out.

Really? You expected it? I know there are some clowns posting bogus bids, but I could never see needing/wanting a game that badly. Or even needing to be the first to have something. I'd be ashamed to admit I paid some ridiculous amount.

Then again, I also don't understand the idea of queuing for a club either....

You're right, people are insane! They were discussing this very topic on the radio this morning and I don't think anyone called in supporting it. There were people camping out in Wal-Mart for 2 days waiting in line for this. Blah...

Who says geeks in their parent's basements don't have lives! Look, they even went camping.
