Last Christmas, I sat there watching news reports coming in about how Nintendo Wii’s were rarer than a good film starring Renee Zellweger, and how they were going for obscene amounts of money on eBay in the run-up to Christmas. Being an unemployed bum, I could have easily queued up for a Wii, and sold it on eBay to fund my next rent payment.
So I walked into Game yesterday, and they’re offering pre-orders on Playstation 3. So I’m thinking I could put down a £50 deposit down, pay £375 on the day and then walk off with an unopened Playstation 3. Then I offer it on eBay and see what I can get for it.
With the slight flaw that it’s not Christmas so there’s not that instantaneous pressure to give little spoilt Timmy the gift he’s always wanted, and it seems that people aren’t really that bothered about Playstation 3s. On the plus side, if I don’t sell it at least I have a PS3 to play with…
So what do you think?
