I doubt anyone will sell it for anything less than two hundred dollar profit.
Some ebay auctions are selling pre-sales or 'promises' to ship when they get it so beware.
Best bet is to get it at the 'normal' price would be to wait.
No one needs video games that badly.
People who are paying thousands of dollars for it need to get their priorities straight.
I was looking for an xbox 360 so my parents could get it to my brother, but, like I warned them, all of them are sold out until february. now as I tirelessly try to make my brother's christmas that much merrier, I find ebay. ebay has xbox 360 consoles flying out of its ***. not only that, but most of them have starting bids of 100 and 200 dollars. I know these people want to make the best out of the holiday crunch and make 100 or 200$ more, but if it ends up at just 300 or 400 for the platinum, will they still sell? and if it does pull through aftger tough negotiatiojn and bidding, will I pay for a 400$ xbox 360 box? success stories would be great, failure stories in good detail would be just as well. sorry this is so long.
