That's what happens when you start the auction low with the same ending time as 10 other auction.

man, I just sold mine for $710. The guy paid an extra 55 for overnight and is likely playing now. I bought two systems and stood in line at Walmart here in houston for 14 hours, thats right, from 10am till 12 midnight. The good news is I was second in line. The one I sold, my little bro actually got for me because I sat him ahead of me to be first in line. Lucky sucker. Anyway, when PS3 launches, I think it will get an extra one to sell online, with the rumors saying it will go for $400, I will likely get three. One for me and two to sell. Cmon if you guys had extras, wouldn't you get a few extra bucks or sell it a retail. If I knew you all needed one, I would have let it go for $500 plus shipping of course. My wife even asked me about selling to the guys on Xbox-Scene, but I assumed that you all had one. My friend has sold like four or five already. Here's hoping to a modchip soon for the 360.

What a fool. That's what setting a reserved price prevents.

I dont like supporting supply/demand markets such as ebay. It drives prices up so people who want to get in the market cant. So I bought 3 and am giving the other 2 away as x-mas presents. I dont feel like I need to make a profit off of this.

Wrong. It drives prices up so people who can afford one, CAN. supply/demand.. If you want it early, sometimes you have to pay.

You have to then, be the best friend/father, brother, uncle in the history of the world. Giving two $400 presents, knowing damn well you could have sold each one for $650.
