I been saying for awhile staff need to eventually do something other wise they will reverse the fact that the premise of this site is to buy cheap video games.
Lately what is happening is people price gouge people that missed a deal.
You're not going to have a cheap ass site for games when you have resellers coming in and buying stupid amounts of copies to throw on ebay and then for teh one guy who was busy that day or had work etc now has to get priced gouged by the scalpers.
Whether people comment about it or not won't change much, if you ask me. There's countless people who I'm sure have no account, who visit this site, amongst others, to gather information on cheap games, and upcoming limited editions and whatnot. A few sparse comments here and there don't change a thing. I think the entire situation is being exaggerated. If you want to stop some of these eBay users, cut off their source of information, and make this forum, and others, private. That's not going to happen though. However, if there was an option to make threads visible to users only... I don't know.
Anyway, scalpers are few and far between. You're talking about fifty or so people on eBay, selling an item that was sold by the thousands. The people looking on eBay wouldn't have gotten the item anyway. They're on eBay because they're late to the game. If the scalper didn't get it, some other random guy would have, and that guy on eBay would never have a chance to pick a copy up. The big fans, most of the time, get what they want, because they're first in line. Scalpers are typically last, and then you have those guys who just recently heard of its popularity, and are enthralled, so they hop on eBay to grab one (sure, fans miss out, but not everyone can have a limited item--there will always be some fans missing out, no matter what).
The only time scalpers really bother me, is when something is given to them free (Metro 2033 steam key), or really cheap (humble bundle), and they try to profit from it. There's a few jackasses on eBay trying to sell the Metro keys, and one that I saw trying to sell the humble bundle. They're just blatantly scamming people, especially since these things are still available. They should, without a doubt, be reported.
