resellers getting owned on ebay

#1LuigisBroPosted 11/18/2012 9:30:52 AM
there's almost no interest in the White WiiU, and the Black WiiU's only going for $450 to $500, resellers are making almost nothing after ebay & paypal fees

most of these hoarders are probably gonna return the systems so retailers might get an unexpected restock in their inventory

Almost nothing = still getting money.

But not much. So they aren't creating as much artificial demand as before. Thank you mobile devices and people being wise enough to not impulse buy crappy ports and gimmicks so quickly these days.

Surprisingly, I saw a lot of parents at TRU this morning when I went to pick up my preorder. I even helped a lady pick out accessories she'd need so her kids could play multiplayer. She was getting it for kids for Christmas and never had the Wii. Anyway, parents may not be the easy rubes resellers think they will be this time around.

Another way to look at it is people don't want Wii U? Flopics at the ready!

They are profiting at least $100 on every system, and many of them bought multiple systems. Not too bad of a deal. You live in backwards world apparently where profiting is now considered getting owned?
