I'd just like it if somebody found a way to make a Mini/Micro SD adapter for it.

I'm tempted by Graces F and Abyss, those are the only ones I'm missing out of these. But I won't trust Digital River again. I'll wait for another site to match hopefully.

#11372323 Square-Enix Holiday Sale - 50% Off Selected Titles & Free Shipping

Posted by The Laughing Mann on 21 December 2013 - 06:20 PM

Digital River, FYI. Squenix's online store is not worth it to me, whether they charge their high shipping fees for games or have a third-party service for payment/order processing that has a shoddy business history.




#11320329 The Official PS4 & XBOX ONE Ebay/Scalping Thread.

Posted by defpally on 05 December 2013 - 02:11 AM

Were better to gauge a market then the end user? Nobody is rubbing anything in your eye this thread is dedicate to the buying and flipping of Next generation units when it was started. I don't care if you welcome me with open arms or not, I am just giving other flippers in this market  some information on what is taking place out there. Take all the information you seem to have and just do an advanced search on ebay and look for complete auctions and tell me what you see. As far as a gamer wanting a system? Do what any normal person would do, Wait it out until there is plenty for sale and there is no flip market and you can have all you want at retail price. The factor of the matter is be mad at Sony and Microsoft this is done on purpose so the media feeds on it. You cant buy press like that. Also lets be realistic the game library on each unit is very small at the moment I am not even a gamer and I know that. Your the same guy who gets mad when he makes a bet at the casino and looses and then says its rigged? Didn't you know that before you put your money down.

 

Good luck to all my fellow flippers will post another update come Friday.    

No I'm the guy that doesn't gamble and thinks you are an ass for taking advantage of other people.  You give capitalism a bad name.  You are neither a consumer nor a producer, your contribution is solely to shave money out of the whole thing and provide zero benefit.  You are helping create the scarcity the requires your "service".  When someone is both source of the problem and the solution people usually call that a con game.  Those 19 PS4s you said you proudly ordered from Amazon yesterday when they came up could have been bought for retail by people that would use them, but instead you are extracting by your own estimates around $2,000 for simply standing in the way.

 

That said, I doubt he is making what he says as well.  Why would he feel the need to come on a site dedicated to people saving money to tell us how in demand they are that you need to spend lots extra if they really were selling that well?  Well networked gamers looking for a discount aren't exactly your target audience as a scalper.  He is probably sitting on several of his "units" and isn't getting bites for the big money he expected.  There are numerous PS4 auctions barely over $500 that are ending with ZERO bids right now.  I see one right now with 6 minutes left for $500 and no bids.

So you are not a gamer and your only purpose is to come here on a forums dedicated to gamers and tell us how "strong" the demand is on your "units" that you have no interest in personally.  Sounds more like a Pump 'n Dump scam.  Especially since what you are saying doesn't even close to line up with information that is readily available.

 

And you aren't a scumbag because you made a profit on a sale, you are a scumbag because you are cleaning out the stock you say is in high demand so you can wring profit off of people that could just simply buy it for retail if people like you didn't exist.  Then you come here to dangle it in front of people that do want to get it and string them along with BS claims about rarity.  Don't come to a website dedicated to gamers seeking out good deals, tell them you have no interest in their hobby outside of taking their money then brag about how much money you are profiting off of them and expect them to welcome you with open arms.  Douchebag.

#11318304 The Official PS4 & XBOX ONE Ebay/Scalping Thread.

Posted by defpally on 04 December 2013 - 04:14 PM

Aww come on, Supercomputers is hilarious.  His posts are like the Douchebag Crop Report.  I love it when he talks about "moving units" and "customers" and "high demand" like he is some business reporter and not just like some skeevy guy standing outside a football game or concert with tickets up his sleeve as he watches for cops.  He is probably just trying to drum up demand and prices by doing that and creating the perception of them being harder to find than they actually are.  If you even half pay attention you could have scored a PS4 or XBOne at retail about a dozen times over the past few weeks.  I see posts almost everyday from one store or another that gets some in.

 

The real question here is whether his "business" is reporting all of these big profits on his tax return.  Because if not it crosses the line from scumbag to felony.  All of these dozens of "units" at hundreds in profit rings up a nice tally come tax time.

#11358308 XBOX ONE in stock at Best Buy

Posted by etcrane on 17 December 2013 - 04:24 PM

Half the reason PS4s are selling out is idiot resellers buying 15 consoles ... go visit slickdeals for proof of that. The market for the inflated resale of next gen consoles is nearly dead but a bunch of people are still trying to buy up all the new stock.

I think it has more to do with lack of supply vs actual demand, MS simply has delivered more stock and killed their resale market faster, which is actually a good thing.

Why the hell would you expect them to sell this season's hot item making no profit without any add-ons?

 

People here just don't understand business at all.

How would you feel if you were to go to grocery store during a snow storm and the only way they sold you milk is if you also bought an addition $10 worth of random groceries, some you have no taste for?

How about next time you're running out of gas, you stop at the gas station but they require to also pick up four 2liter bottles of soda, 5 candy bars, and a pack of cigarettes?

Oh you wanna buy the new COD: Ghosts? You must also buy COD: BLOPSII, CODMW3, CODMW2, COD: BLOPS, etc.


Yeah man...people here just don't understand business.

I hope someone takes severe advantage of you in a time of need or while you are trying to obtain something you very badly want, then they just say "business" since I know you'll understand.


I understand the reasoning of the bundles but they're out of hand, driving a $400 item up to $700 or $800 at times. I can understand maybe requiring you to buy the PSN+/XBox Live year (since they're nearly required).  I don't even mind them packing a game in there too, but it's not packed in the PS4 box w/special packaging so I don't see the harm in allowing the customer to pick the game of their choice.  It's just overall greedy and I wonder if you would be able to buy the bundle, keep the system and return the rest...I believe consumer affairs would be on your side for that.
