The PS4 warranty claims have not been disclosed yet but just as a tip don't forget to include the original purchase receipt with the system to cover any warranty requirements as a courtesy to your buyer. 

PS3 required this so if a buyer ends up having a defective system, they won't have to hound you for any assistance in getting the claim processed.

How's this working out?

 

It seems like a lot of the big talkers disappeared from this thread.
 

Let’s be honest, not many people came with the intention to stick around CAG after the flipping discussion runs dry. Roughly half the people in this thread are new users who created accounts just to post in this thread. They will come and go, like big dumb ships passing in the night.

 

btw, why are you always hatin on your fellow cag that is only trying to make a few buckaroo. aren't we suppose to be a community here.

You might say that buying up the stock of an item so other CAGs can’t get one isn’t a very brotherly act in the first place. If the community generally cared about one another, there would probably be a lot less “you snooze, you lose” and “just capitalism bro” bandied about on the forums. To quote BigJoe: “I know that most of you will hate me for this, but I could care less.”

 

LOL... no I've been pretty busy with wealth preservation as 2013 is coming to a close. I never cry over opportunities that never materialize. I look at and create opportunities frequently in my line of work.

Carrying around fat stacks of cash? Boasting about your business acumen? That always works out so well… just ask rap.

I actually don't carry any cash. "THAT" was honestly set aside for 30-35 PS4's and shown for validation. You can thank TimboSliceGB for awaking the sleeping dragon (I wish he'd delete those remaining links in his post.) None-the-less I would've preferred to had showed you guys a lucrative pyramid of 30-35 PS4's... as proof.

 

Where did I boast about my business acumen or was that statement used to allow your post to flow? :-k

i think some of the gamers are desperately hoping the systems are sold out, makes them feel more powerful with what they have.  should i laugh or cry?  the only game i want to play has been released for two weeks already.  but if i can buy three, sell two, and keep one. its free.

"As stated I have an Xbox One Day One Edition. These are already sold out everywhere. You can't get this particular model unless you shop on Ebay where prices are $700 and up.

Will arrive on or around 11/22

Email or text with questions or concerns."

 

Listed for $650 and took $600.  Have a couple to move so decided to take it to get things rolling.  Including pics is big too, even if its some generic pic from google.

 

I'm meeting the person in Walmart at an ATM.  

 

I've been contacted about 8-10 times about shipping item to the buyer, accepting a check, etc.  Beware of emails that don't list the actual item you are selling, buyers don't give their name, or they use all caps to ask questions like: "IS THIS ITEM STILL AVAILABLE?"  Bad grammar, where you can tell English isn't the person's first language (no offense to anyone, I struggle with it sometimes myself) is another red flag.

I'm going to do a cash only swap in the lobby of a bank. $600 for an Xbox One? So you netted around $50? It just doesn't seem worth the time or risk.

$100.  No tax on Amazon in the state i live in.  It all depends on how much you value your time.  Even the little bit I make off this is the only way I can justify buying an Xbox One for myself

Average Ebay auctions for PS4's are currently ending around $1000. Go to listings ending soon and WATCH

What does average mean to you because I'm not seeing anything close:

 

http://www.ebay.com/...nc&LH_Auction=1

 

I see one listing that shows $1,000+ on the search page but the bidding is actually only up to $850.

 

Edit: I do see two ending soon with no bids at $500 and $600 so I guess we see whatever we want to see...... right?

Go watch the current listings. Pick any one that has bids and watch the auction end. Ebay dosent show sold listings until the item is paid for so these new ales will show up shortly. But go watch some auctions end and share UN BIASED findings

unbiased...

 

Let's see:

Search "PlayStation 4 Consoles"

 

Filter by "Sold Listings" & "Auction Format"

 

http://www.ebay.com/...nc&LH_Auction=1

 

Edit: I would say the average is less then or right at $600 UNLESS you are including a game or extra controller AND shipping internationally.

 

Edit 2: And if you are doing an auction style listing NOW all you are doing is acting as a placeholder for the buyer who will spend the next four days looking for a console at retail before they consider paying for the console because they know you can't upon an UID until four days after the auction closes

Those sold PS4 on ebay looks sketchy shit. winning bidder always with 0 feedback.  if this continue, i'll probably won't sell on ebay and just go CL and meet at a bank like the above poster mention.

Several media outlets are reporting faulty hardware or software for the PS4.  This is just a small sample size, but it could lessen supply.

Or make people even more wary of buying a PS4 launch version and drop demand/consumer confidence like a rock.

I did extensive tracking of the Xbox 360. I sold several units on the after-market. Xbox 360s before release were selling for about 3 time value. A $400 system (just console) was selling in the $1200 neighborhood. Then at release time, the after-market prices dropped to around twice value. A $400 system was then selling in the $800-$900 range. From that point on there was a very steady predictable drop in price until Christmas. I was able to obtain a 360 right before Christmas which I was able to sell for $580 – about a $150 profit. (Yes, of course there were exceptions to this, but this was the basic pattern after watching thousands of units for sale).

 

Wow, interesting.  I thought rich parents and well-to-do people would be desperate enough to pay more as Christmas nears, driving up the prices.  I have a PS4 that's going to arrive on Friday and three games already on my desk but it's not worth selling if I don't recoup at least $300 in revenue (I live in NY and have to pay tax).  So far I'm seeing PS4 Buy-It-Now sellers (as of Nov 14, Thursday Morning) who made a sale were selling the console for a little under $600.  Most are offering free shipping that is coming out of their pockets so they probably only pocketed around $150 dollars or so.  I'm seeing many listings of $700+ PS4s left unsold.  If the price keeps dropping as you say until Christmas from what you observed in previous holidays, then I don't think it's worth selling.

theres no way you will be able to make $300 profit for this generations of console. the best would probably $!50-200 range and even then you don't know if sonys going to send more stock to each retailer in hopes of crushing the xbox one sales so all in all, I advise everyone to sell the ps4 around 1 or 2 days after launch. I already sold both my preorders and didn't even have to risk exchanging the console on cl.

Yeah, dropped my CList listing to $580. Still no emails. I think a trip to the returns department is on the horizon. Ah well, not all speculations work out fellas. I just hope we don't see a flood of horror stories here about ebay sellers being scammed. A lot of people sold based on changing the Amazon delivery address. That's not going to be good for a lot of them.
