Some of the Gamestop Sony PS3 reservations that have been briefly available this week are turning up on eBay.
The sellers claim that they have been first in line at GameStop or EB Games. The Buy Now price for a premium PS3 is set around between $1,500 and $2,000.
When the Xbox 360 launched prices went as high as $3,000 for a premium package on eBay. I see currently 25 auctions for Sony PS3 premium consoles on eBay. That is still not a lot. I guess sellers still holding back. It is still early in the game. Update: Another reason is that eBay is looking very closely at PS3 and Wii auctions. There is a eBay policy saying: "The seller must guarantee that the item will be available for shipping within 30 days from the date of purchase (i.e., the day the listing ends or the date the item is purchased from a store front listing)." I guess we will see many more auctions next week.
I already wonder how many days before launch day Sony Fanboys will camp out in front of a Best Buy. The low supply will despite the high price generate a tremendous shortage and disappointment for many Sony fans.
