For some reason, I have a hunch that PS4 will be readily available in December in NA.

If so, some people will feel really foolish, especially those who will pay thousands on ebay in November.

with these bundles coming out it shows these things will not be hard to find after launch and people like mr focus will still think thye will be hard to find.

 

This will be the wii u launch all over again people find out these things are not selling for couple grand and then return the systems to the stores which means more in stock for people that really want a system. I think it's sick for someone to buy 3-4 systems at launch just to make money when those systems could have been sold at msrp to people that really want those systems. 

 

Welcome to America. its not really sick, just capitalism. But then again I guess that could be debatable.

3-4 systems, meh! I'm poised to secure 30-35 systems. It's going to cost me an extra $900 to grease some palms but no one said pimpin was easy. :D/

either this guy is trolling or just a idiot. if someone could afford to buy 30-40 systems why would he even waste his time making extra couple hundred bucks.

Kind sir, he probably isn't using his own money (might be using credit cards).  Therefore he can flip them and payoff any credit debt within 30 days without paying any interest.  Most preorders don't charge your card until it ships.

This is what I do.

I usually sign up for a card with good rewards to reap all the benefits of this magical time of the year.

Guys some people do actually buy tons of extra consoles to over-sell or give to family members. I know one of my friends has already pre-order 5 PS4 from different stores and plans to over sell them to make money on Ebay and Craigslist . I kinda feel bad for the people who just want to play games and enjoy the console themselves and don't actually get one.

I'm definitely not trolling. Surely you'd agree when making an substantial investment or taking on a fair amount of risk one should equip themselves with as much information as possible... hence my recent interest in gaming community sites. (9/15)

 

he's obviously joking.

 

No joke. Just waiting on confirmation of local store inventory levels and distribution time frames. I should have this info by November 1st?

That's a smart way to leverage your money and take advantage of reward programs. My 'next-gen launch' venture will be personally funded.

$12,720 - $14,840 to be exact... give or take $0.30 - $0.35 (plus $900 to grease palms and an average of $30 per system for shipping cost).

I'm aiming at a much higher profit margin but I'll entertain your guess of, "...couple hundred bucks."

 

30 x $200 = $6,000 ROI; initial investment of $12,720... 47% return... 10-14 days. Please explain to me how that is a waste of time? :-k

 

Gentlemen, if you can conceive flipping 3 systems then I challenge you to stretch your imagination and add a zero.

My reply to this type of stance is always the same but this time around I'm going to play along. Please share with everyone this vast knowledge you have or uncanny foresight you possess to foresee this abundance of consoles that will meet demand. Surely you're not assuming as you disregard the history of prior gaming launches. Please go right ahead... the floor is yours.  :shock:

Nope! I've been open and honest thus far. There's a chance for success and a chance for failure. As always I try to maximize one while defending myself from the other. I'll share my results no matter what.

Going off of the write-up Nikkei had a while back, it seems like Sony was out in front and starting having all the components delivered for assembly a while ago.There are retail units out now, and Nikkei estimated they could be assembling over 1M/mo.

 

Combined with the simple die/generous yeild probability of the processor(s) compared to the ESRAM design or CELL BBE, and less specialized overall hardware architecture compared to previous generations, I don't forsee they supply constraints being as severe as they were the previous generation.

i'm pretty sure if anyone here was told about a STOCK with the potential to double or triple, and that downside was limited because if it didn't double or triple in 30 days you could sell the stock back for what you paid, people would be jumping all over it to buy as much as they could.

 

Flipping consoles has unlimited upside and zero downside apart from occasionally eating a shipping cost.  That's why people do it.

If you seriously paid $900 to secure systems + $30 shipping per console and the demand is not there you stand to lose a lot of money. There were ways you could have secured that amount of consoles with NO financial risk. This is not your best move. Also, out of the last 4 console releases only 2 were profitable. Wii and 360 (unless you sold your PS3 the first day). PS3 and Wii U were busts. You may make a ton of money, but based on the amount of preorders available, the fact that they keep making MORE available, and the statements coming from Sony( not so much Microsoft), this may not be a good flipping year.

Amazon screwed up my PS4 pre-order (long story, but at least I got over $200 store credit due to their mistake). Anyway, the customer service person I was speaking to said that they were going to start taking orders again first/second week of October.

I think it's a mistake.  Compare it to this one, which has the camera for the exact same price:

http://www.target.co...m_1_31&term=ps4

 

They either accidentally created a whole new bundle and left out the camera, or the bundle that doesn't have a camera was mistakenly priced as the one with a camera.

The $900 won't be paid until 11/14. $30 shipping per console is the only remaining upfront cost to ship the consoles as I sell them on eBay. I'm waiting on some detail info that will help me gauge the market and odds of success before making the investment. Please share or inbox me on how I could've secured 30+ consoles without any risk? The route I chose won't cost me a dime until 11/14 9pm EST. Another way of looking at it; I have an OPTION, with an intrinsic value of $900, to purchase 30-35 consoles. If I exercise the OPTION it will cost me $900 plus cost of the consoles. If I decide to pass on the PS4 I can let the OPTION expire worthless with zero cost to me.
