Interesting. Do you review for a big company or just a smaller independent type of review? I've seen videos of review copies with banners on the case art that says REVIEW COPY on it, so I'm not really sure.

I don't do it anymore, but when I did, it was for a smaller now-defunct web site.  Many of the big sites have dev units that allow them to download the games, so I'm not sure how many of them actually get physical copies.  But from what I've seen when speaking to other journalists and bloggers, it seems like most of them receive normal store copies like I always did.  They would sometimes have "Review copy" (or similar) stickers slapped on them, but that's about it.

Sounds like a cool job. The dev units make sense nowadays, with everything going digital

Excuse my stupidity, but im not sure I understand this -------> http://tucson.craigs...4181668020.html

 

Does that mean you buy it from this guy and all you owe is 100 bucks to target? (plus taxes)

Update: NVM, asked the dude, and he told me it just had a $25 gift card and that he was selling his pre-order so high, because there are no more pre-orders available. ( I call that pretty stupid suggesting how much this fool wants to get for it)

Seems like a lot of effort for such for such a small return.  I guess if this person gets a lot of takers there's money to be made, but it'd require a pretty sizable initial investment.

 

Anyways, I put an ad up for Target and Amazon on the same board.  Let's see if it stays up.

He probably got those games for $20 each during the Walmart Sale Extravaganza.

 

If he did, he's making about $90 per flip.

Were PS4 games even available during that fiasco?  Even if they let him preorder them, I doubt Walmart would fulfill the order.

Please note the slight bend in the cardboard packaging in the second photo. This is NOT player's choice and is in great condition. The hard plastic shell that it has been stored in (which is also pictured in the photos) is included in the pricing.

Problem is that Target doesn't carry Injustice.. A lot of work and shipping for $20 profit.

So he wins a drawing for a PS4 then price gouges, talk about greedy. I think even if i was willing to spend $600 on a PS4 I wouldn't buy it from the guy who won it for free.

not a suprise the PITT CL was spammed with "Buy PS4, 550-1000" considering these other post.

if i had a dollar for every piece of shit advertising one for more than they paid, i could just go buy one.

It makes me laugh because almost every Walmart in the area has them in stock too.

Look at this dipshit. He is asking $700 for his PS4, but doesn't want any "Low ballers".

 

What a tool.

LMAO, at first I thought "doter" was supposed to be doctor, but I guess they meant daughter. "itsspecieely" = especially? They must have dropped out of school in 3rd grade.
