Why people mad at someone making profit? If you provide a product and someone buys it (no matter how high, that's up to the buyer) and both the buyer and seller are happy then what's wrong with it? You whiners can cry about it possibly knocking you out of getting one but if they don't produce enough of them to fill the demand then blame those behind the production numbers and setting price too low to keep up with the demand. Oh, and just for the record I did not get one myself but not whining about it. I'm happy for those smart enough to make some money. They took a gamble and it paid off for them this time as it could very well have gone the other way.

What if the game comes out after the 30th?
That is my biggest concern. If the game ships on the 26th it's suppose to add the $40.60 points to my account when it ships. Soon as h points show up I will buy a game that's in stock (hopefully destiny for PS4) and or the last of us remastered. I would use them on a Wii U preorder but the points only last 2 weeks so it has to be in stock game and sooner the better since it will charge card when ships which might affect getting the points even if you get the order in before the 30th. Kind of murky overall but I came out good on mario kart 8 from kmart with all the points bonuses but ordered this through sears since kmart said coming soon without shipping or store pickup option so a bit of a gamble but at least I know I'll get the 20,600 points and thinking I'll get the full 40,600 which is a no brainer purchase really. I think this game is going to be really fun from what I've read and even though I'm broke with a huge backlog I can't help but want to support nintendo on awesome releases like this.

My PS3 bricked a couple of weeks ago. Is $130.xx after taxes a good deal on a used PS3? I haven't been following Cowboom so not sure if the price has been lower before and whether I should wait
My fat ps3 needed a GPU reflow (plus the 500gb hdd was full) So I got on cowboom and got a super slim PS3 12gb for $99.99 plus $12 for tax and shipping (deal of the day). It was a grade 6 and came in the original box. The controller and hookups were obviously new and the console looked new other than a few minor scratches on the glossy part which isn't even noticable. I purchased a 1 terabyte hard drive for another $50-60 and now have plenty of space while still have my old 2006 PS3 hooked up as well. I've seen some deals on their recently for 250gb super slims for about the same money or a little more so just depends on what you want in hdd space.

This is a good deal overall but I still can't justify an xbox one purchase at this time and having no money income makes the decision even easier. I can't play my Wii U and PS4 as much as I want not to mention all my older consoles but for some reason I still want an xbox one especially for the halo collection coming later. I wish they'd release a halo special edition master chief collection bundle for $399.99 and I'd be all over it.

Can someone explain all the hype around Shovel Knight for me?
Well, I bought it on my Wii U today and let me just say it's one of the best games I've ever played. I've had so much fun with it so far. I grew up playing NES and have played a lot of games since so trust me when I say if you like 2d platformers with good story and tight controls you will probably get far more than the $14.99 worth out of it. It's just got unique gameplay elements that add so much to the game.

Coming from someone with all the consoles (except Xbox One) The Wii U is by far the best right now. The quality of the games on it are just through the roof and nothing on PS4 comes close. I can't see why the console is not selling it's all just people buying into the hype I guess. Hopefully Mario Kart 8 will move a lot of units and then those can start getting the word out about how awesome the Wii U really is.
