Only the deluxes will sell at a profit, and not much at that. He just blew a lot of money on a risky venture.

Over $10,200 worth of Wii U's. But look, he gets to make that cool design!

Anyway, he'll probably sell every single one for SOME profit. He certainly won't be a millionaire, though. I think he'd be lucky to make over $1,000 off of this.

Also, link to the seller, just out of curiosity?

A LOT of eBay resellers rack up their credit card bills.

Really stupid move. Resellers are deserting the Wii U like rats on a sinking ship. They can't even sell them for cost. I'm sure he'll have fun bringing all those consoles back to the store lol.

They made about 1000$ which is a pretty pathetic profit margin.

I work in real estate, and one of our rule of thumbs is "a profit is a profit". It doesn't matter if it was only $1000. It's $1000 more than he started with. That's one of the basic principles in building wealth.

So when you make 7.25$ an hour working at McDonalds, it's building wealth because "a profit is a profit," right?

He made a huge mistake thinking this would be a repeat of last gen's launches. Nintendo is doing a much better job at keeping these things in stock.
