  1. Fortunately, me and my mate were able to pre-order two of them and received them the launch date. We put one on E-bay that afternoon and sold it within three hours. We made enough to pay for the one that we kept for ourselves and fund half of the money we needed for this summer's vacation to DisneyWorld. I wanted so badly to e-mail the guy who bought it from us and ask him if he felt like a sucker when, if he had waited a couple of days, he could have had a few extra grand still sitting in his wallet AND a PS3.

    Oh well, his loss was our gain. That's just good ol' capitalism at work, I guess. I hope you made a few pennies off of this phenomenon too.
