PS4 Sells For Over $850 On eBay

IB Times - Gamers are forking over some serious cash to get their hands on a PlayStation 4. Someone on eBay put down $860 for a pre-ordered PS4, which didn't include any games. That's more than double the $399 rate that the base model PS4 is going for in stores. (eBay, Gadgets, Gaming, PlayStation 4, Web)

If you remember how much some stupid people payed for PS3 on Ebay ( If i'm correct, some PS3's went for almost $3000 ).

This almost makes me want to put my PS4 BF4 Edition on sale and see where it goes.

I think you miss understood me, I don't have it with me as of now, I was talking about my Pre-Ordered Bundle. It will be shipped later this year when PS4 is officially released.

Mezzo their was a guy by me that had sold his PS3 for $20,000. Luckiest son of bitch around that time of release.

I say people need to just not look into one or two websites for information if they want to purchase either a PS4 or XBox ONE.

Be smart, don't be a gullible freak.

Well as for opportunistic vultures out there, we can't really fix that. It's all part and parcel when something's in-demand.

You'd need to be an absolute idiot to pay that amount of money when you could simply wait a couple of weeks. I'd like a PS4 for launch, but if I can't get it, I'd be fine with waiting a little while as I still have games to play on PS3, PC and Wii U.
There's absolutely no reason to be paying so much. The old saying proves true, "A fool and his money are soon parted".

When the PS3 was released there were some stupidly expensive ones available. There were some at £10,000 and then a few that went up to about £10 million until ebay closed them down. I can remember watching it fly up.
