Well, don't go on eBay! What the f*ck is wrong with people?! They are paying over $400 just for the GCN itself (no games or accessories). And the sellers are not even shipping until after the 18th!

Do people think these are going to be that scarce? I plan on getting one on lauch day and was thinking that I wouldn't have too much trouble finding one. Does anyone think they will be that hard to find?

Maybe I should put a few up for auction... Posted Image

I didn't preorder one either, damn bundle bastards!!! I am planning on getting one on launch day, or unless they are released here in Dallas early I'll buy one there. I am going to a 24hr Wal-Mart at 11pm or so and if they don't have any then I'll go over to Frys in the morning. I really don't see a problem with being able to find one on launch day as long as you get to stores before they open up.

I'm amazed at the number of people entering my store inquiring about GCN & Xbox for the sole purpose of selling them on Ebay. There's just too many of these people...Ebay is going to be flooded and the prices won't hold up.

I don't want to. I limit the # of systems people can buy for that reason alone.

Holy crap! Someone over at Lary's ubid link bid $1989 for two Gamecubes.

Damn, maybe I should sell my Gamecube bundle (4 games) on eBay. Sheesh, with the money I could make, I could go out and buy several more gamecubes. Posted Image Thats being greedy but so what if there are people stupid enough to buy it!

God bless!
