I wouldn't count on being able to flip for much of a profit, the original Wii was released also on mid November, I remember I just walked in a walmart and got one a few days later.
If you're telling the truth, then your situation was definitely an exception. A year later, people were still buying the Wii for up to $700 on eBay. It was very hard to get for quite a while. People died trying to get the damn thing.
$150 Tickle Me Elmo
Only $150? When that sucker came out, our local news station was constantly reporting about people paying $1000-$2000 for that stupid toy. Same thing for Furby. Zhu Zhu Pets only got up to about $500, I think.
Now where did I put that $600 doorstop at. ='(
Ha ha, I'm happy to say I only paid half as much for my doorstop. And I paid for it with money from online surveys, so I'm not too bitter about it. I also didn't pay for my Vita out of pocket, but I am
a little bitter about that one. Hopefully I'll feel better when I can get my hands on AC Liberation.
Serious? My wife likes to buy crap from there anyhow. I'll have to check that out.
They've been doing this for a couple of years and it's always a fucking mad house there.
I wonder how many copies they'll get to give out. Not worth it if they only get like 20 or so.
If it's anything like previous years, it very much won't be worth it. I believe our store had something like 8 to 10 and they were spoken for hours before the store opened.
First in line, they hand out wristbands and keep the game behind the counter till checkout. Also those returning to gamestop remember to take off the old navy sticker covering the original UPC. Ran into that problem when they gave out dance central.
Just take the disc out. Problem solved.
My wife said she wants to do the Old Navy deal, I know it's early, but would anyone say, in the case of a midnight opening, showing up at 10pm would be good enough?
Previously, our store opened at 2 AM, I believe, and there were already a few hundred people in line by 10 PM (their opening time was different, I think, because it operates out of a mall). But based on my experiences, I think most of these people had no idea that a game was involved.
