Ebay is such a joke they should have more reliable stock if they're going to be advertising these deals like that.

The problem was they let people buy 5 each. It's obvious those are all resellers, should have been limited to 1 or 2 max.

2,000 units isn't shabby---they could have easily hit 10,000 had they left it up for an hour.

 

Problem is that they didn't limit it to one per account. I'd say the majority of the orders were 3+ units.

They said the sale would start at 9 pm PT. When I checked out I refreshed the page and it said 7 bought. I refreshed 2 or 3 minutes later and it said over 400 were sold. So glad I had the chance to buy one because I was buying Wii U games all week without knowing if I would be able to get the ebay bundle. Sweet deal!

The MS Surface 32GB is even more insane... many people buying 10 at a time!

When/where was it said that the deal would go live at 9pm PT? There were at least 3 times on this page when someone asked when this deal was going to go live and no one answered. Only thing I saw was someone saying they thought deals went live at midnight PST, which clearly isn't the case.

I saw it on the front page of ebay. Plus all the deals have been happening around 9 pm for black friday anyway. I just kept doing a search for wii when 9pm came around and it eventually popped up; I didn't see it on the deals page.

When do the various eBay deals go up?

 

Edit: As in what time of day.

 

 

Curious about this as well.

 

 

Do these go up at midnight or what?

 

 

I'm wondering if the Wii U will show up in the sidebar of ebay deals page or not? So far that shows up to late tomorrow night.

 

Edit: It looks like new deals go live at midnight PST. 

 

 

Anyone know when the Wii U Bundle goes live?

 

 

It would have been great if  anybody had answered these questions with the 9pm PST thing before then sale went live.

I wasn't sure when the Wii U or Xbox Live Gold was going live. Don't want to be like the PS+ guy on SD who gave a heads up and turned out to be false. I knew the deals go live around 12AM EST but some of them don't go live during that time. The PS Vita for example didn't go live until 4-5AM EST.

Why the Fuck do these go by Eastern Standard Time again? eBay is based in California, in the Pacific Time Zone.

Wow, those mario bundles went fast.  Feel sorry for those who were waiting for them tomorrow.  And why are so many people buying 5 of them?  They aren't that in demand to make much if any profit off that.

Normally that would work to my advantage, but since there was no clear timeline, I (and many others it seems) figured this was a 3 am EST/12 PM PST affair.

 

The real sin was not capping these at 1 (or even 2) per account. The amount of folks that bought 5 depleted the 2000 units before it even hit the daily deals page.

Picked up a 12-Month Gold card. It seems it did go up at midnight EST.

I wasn't aware that eBay was selling the Wii U's.

Do we know who is selling the Xbox 360 4GB (MS? Newegg? Buy? TRU?)? Just curious b/c I'd like to keep an eye on their store

I was one of the people waiting for a wii u bundle. I was unlucky enough to be working till late black friday and missed the deals. I was relying on ebays bundle to get my brother it for Christmas. Thought it was going to be up at 12am and it turned out they put the listing up at 9pm instead and didn't show it on the front page for deals. Sucks ass -_-

I'm not sure who is doing the Xbox 360 4GB at this time or when it will be live.

FUDDGEEE. Forgot about the 9pm Pacific Time thing.

 

Any chance they sell some more later?

What is this all about? 

 

http://www.ebay.com/...=item51b5cb8ad6

 

Tiger Direct is selling a 4GB Xbox 360 "E" for $179.99 with a $30 AMEX card?

 

Not exactly the $135 deal as mentioned above

Who knows, they might release more throughout the day.  2000 seems like a small amount for an advertised deal like this.  Didn't they sell the same amount a few weeks ago for an unadvertised deal?

 

If you get your hands on a target 20% off coupon, the mario bundle is eligible and would be $240.

That "might" be the Xbox 4GB deal. If you look at the OP, some deals just never showed up. Some showed up cheaper than originally suggested or even more expensive. iPad Mini and Nexus 7 as examples.
