Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X $300


#301 Freeze Time  

Freeze Time

Posted 27 June 2020 - 03:17 AM

I had one in my cart at Microsoft the night it went live at $300. Ordered then immediately canceled. I also recently canceled my Animal Crossing Switch that was waiting for me at Best Buy.

I just make terrible decisions.


Was it something other than a money issue?
I only opened my Cyberpunk console after I sold my black One X. Took me a week to get what I wanted for it. If I wasn't able to pay for the Cyberpunk bundle with my One X, I would have sold it instead. I still need to sell the figure and Direct delivery game. I'll actually end up making money on it.

I never thought about getting an animal crossing Switch although if I did it would just be to sell it for a profit. I like to think the majority of the ones purchased went to people that actually kept them.

Anyway, my point is if it was a money issue, it's better to have that extra $600 for bills or things more important than video game consoles. Not Everyone likes to post an ad on OfferUp or Craigslist and then meet someone and sell it for a profit or send it through the mail off eBay or whatever.

Money is always an issue, but besides that: I t was half wanting to keep both consoles when I don’t really need them and half reselling but not having enough time to do so. I figure I just save myself the headache thinking about if I really should have bought it and instead live with the regret of missing out, haha.

I was finally able to score one the other night off Facebook Marketplace. Found a guy selling a system for $425, so it was basically existing pricing plus tax. He even provided a copy of the receipt.

So assuming he bought it when Gamestop had it for $299, he probably was charged like 30 bucks in tax so he made around a hundred bucks selling it to you. I haven't been keeping track of what the consoles are going for now but cool you were finally able to get one. I still have the game and figure that I'm going to sell.

Yeah he ordered it June 5, so he made a little profit and I ended up paying what I would at retail anyways. There are still a ton in my area going for $500+.

Not a bad deal. He could have pulled a GameStop and bundled some other crap with it and sold it for more. Exclusive random person bundle includes 10 limited edition artwork scribbles I made while waiting for cyberpunk to release - MSRP $899.

I just wish the next gen pricing would get announced soon so I know how bad of a mistake I made not getting this when it was still available.

Guy was in his late 60s, early 70s and got it from Walmart. He was listed as $599 for weeks before dropping probably because the demand was so low.

And I felt the same way, I have an 8 month old Gears 5 system and felt like I’d kick myself for not getting this one. I’ll probably sell the Gears system as we get closer to Series X.

Damn, a 70 year old man hustling  consoles. You know the interest rate has to be bad when it comes to this.
