Probably 40 of those were scalpers too.

Are you offering to give them the receipt? People may be weary to buy one from an independent seller w/o one because of the DOA issue PS4s are having.

I have listed in the ad that they would get a "gift receipt". Since I used my Best Buy card and not straight cash I would be a little wary giving them the original receipt.

There's nothing wrong with giving them the receipt. If the PS4 warranty claims are like the PS3, you'll need proof of purchase which I'm not sure if the BB gift receipt will print the serial #. The worst they do is return the system and accidentally credit your Best Buy card in the buyer's case.

I must have overestimated the demand for Xbone. When I listed my PS4 ad during the midnight launch I got 5 buyers within an hour. When I listed my ad for the Xbone last night at $650, not a single person has bothered to respond as of now. I know it's foolish to make any conclusions out of a launch day but it seems to be that the demand i the secondary market is somewhat indicative of the demand for the system itself. A lot of scalping opportunities for the PS4 and not so much for the Xbone. An interesting observation though, is that the supply is much smaller in the U.S. market compared to the PS4. The Microsoft store near me already sold out of Xbone consoles last night. My Sony store still had PS4's for public sale through the first few days.

Now playing:

Worth picking up an xbone to sell for a profit and throwing the money in my own xbone fund?

They all probably heard that they could make "1,000's" of dollars from flipping their system.

Darn. If I only I could go back in time so I could graduate sooner, move to Redmond, and hope I get hired by Microsoft. Simple plan! LOL

Had 6 PS4's and 4 game bundles (three games each, my target had buy two get one free) Sold all 6 the Saturday after launch. 3 game bundle $720. Split one game bundle for two separate system sales, $610 ea. Sold one system alone for $550. Sold last game that survived bundles for $45. Two of the game bundles and consoles were not mine but I did make commission for selling, $40 total. So all in all good Saturday! 

 

Tried pricing higher Friday but only one bite. Flake. Slowly lowered (spamming CL) until I reached 550 and 720 bundle price.

 

Now Xbox One was harder to get. I could only get two. Target manager noticed me from last time. Last time(PS4) he seemed cool and friendly. This time I think he figured I was flipping and his mood was totally different. He made everyone buy an accessory, none of which were on sale. I'm sure he did it to hurt flippers. So I got the two systems one with a year of xbox live card and one with assassins creed. My brother also got a system. A day one launch edition. Lucky. He was first in line though. Anyway I have them listed at $650 on CL and bites are few. Have the xbox live at $80 (it's also a day one launch edition). Have the game at $65. Sold one system for 650 today. Have a guy on the hook for my brothers day one at $830. Includes day one xbox live. 

 

Overall the market seems pretty slow for xbox one. PS4 seemed hot but then again I think my game bundle is what really sold the system. Just figure ps4 440 + three games 210 = 650 and I was selling for 720 only 70 above retail. 

 

I have tomorrow to sell my last xbox one and my brother still has to sell his.

You guys think it would be better to wait til Christmas to try flipping the Day One edition?

Xbox sells 1 million units. and according to MS, they are likely unable to meet demands for the rest of this holiday season.

That's what i was thinking, the stock Day One edition is clearly limited with many having to settle for the green box ones purchase on 1st day.  

 

Once everyone have sold there's and all Day Ones are open and used, imo, i think it may be able to fetch a high premium price.

Just wondering what's the lowest people have seen some sell for and highest? 

 

I checked CL and some dumb ass has a want ad looking to buy a PS4 for $390.  Another idiot is trying to sell Xbox one for $750 in the wanted section as well lol; just found someone selling a day one for $1000 also in wanted.  I saw another ad looking to buy for $700.  If only I could make money connecting people.

 

I'm surprised people are paying more than $200 over msrp.  I can somewhat understand when ps3 and xbox 360 came out since there were actually exclusives.

just came back from meeting this kid and his parents for an xbox one day 1 edition exchange.  Was really stupid. we met at my local bestbuy and the kid's parent wanted to take the console inside to test it. wtf, i told him they were not going to do that. ask him to pay me and he can go in himself and test and he laugh it off as if it was funny.  i picked up my console and gave him the Fuck off look. really stupid parents there.

Hot damn I honestly didn't see these things selling like this. With the way everyone was talking I figured there would be a decent supply of these things or at least enough in certain areas and the net that would hurt scalper values from going too high. Guess not, wish I had got in on this too make some extra cash. Mind, wouldn't be like some of these asses buying up entire store stocks as I'd just get one of each but I'd still be happy with the profit from them.

another scammer wants to paypal me $650 now and pickup tomorrow. really man, he doesn't even know me and i have zero credential, why would someone paypal a random guy on CL $650 unless they clearly know they can get their money back.  I really need to make a fake paypal acct and walk away with that money and donate it charity or something.

So ended up selling all my preorders. I didn't even need to buy the systems to sell and risk getting stabbed lol. I got $200 for one ps4 preorder, a like new 320gb xbox 360 star wars console with controllers for the other ps4 preorder. I also got $300 for 2 xbone preorders. I also have one ps4 and one xbone shipping to me which will get here on Saturday I will probably sell the ps4 for $540 and basically get the xbox one for free. All in All seems you can make as much money from the preorders. wish i got more at target.

Damn Im down to my last ps4 and xbone. Im gonna hold on to them and see what kind of trades I can get now that the supply has dried up. Everyone thinks they can have one last shot on black friday, they are about to enter a bloodbath of 600 people for 20 consoles. Im thinking of seeing if I can trade for a sealed Macbook Pro

Everyone should try using their final stock as bartering trade items. You could trade for things far more valuable and technically "make more" in terms of your trade's greater value

The article says they are working hard to meet the demand for the hoiday season.  It's unclear how many more consoles will arrive. 

 

On a bad note I saw 2 Xbox Ones sitting on the shelf at my Target.  This was at 6pm on Saturday.

Xbox One sold one million worldwide. PS4 sold a million in NA in one day. That should tell you something about the demand for the Xbox.

No, it says something about the supply of Xbox One's. If Microsoft is already talking about not having enough for the holiday season, clearly, they didn't have that many consoles come off the line ready to ship.
