PS3 fans line up to make a buck
With dollar signs flashing in their eyes, San Franciscans can't wait to hawk their consoles for thousands of dollars.
SAN FRANCISCO--All those people queued up for a chance to lay down $500 to $600 bucks for a shiny new PlayStation 3 aren't just gaming fanatics--many of them are entrepreneurs as well.
Mingling with the bundled-up fans under dark gray San Francisco skies, I was hard-pressed to find anyone planning to keep one for themselves. (Note to: We have long lines for the bathroom on the West Coast too.)
Several people balked when I asked if they wanted a PS3 to keep. As they cited the thousands of potential dollars to be made by re-selling the consoles on eBay, Craigslist or to their friends and family members, I got the feeling they couldn't afford not to sell them.
