For those of us schmucks who did not pull the trigger on the $100 gc promo that many stores/online retailers were running to pick up a 2nd console, does anyone see that happening again anytime soon? I foolishly let the anticipated Christmas mega-bill from Amex buttress my ball & chain's argument that we don't need a 2nd PS3...

A price drop is probably only a few months out so don't beat yourself up over it. It was a very nice deal (especially at Walmart as several still had leftover Black Friday UC2/MoH bundles on sale) but it isn't the last deal that will come along.

I'm just glad that I now have a backup unit that I can use for homebrew and a normal unit that I can keep clean for the PSN.

Thanks all!

Sounds like you knew about the 360 box only auction from when the 360 launched and sold for some nice change. And the person that won that auction is probably lonely and broke right now staring at that box.

Seems like it too me, but if people are out there buying boxes for systems I will for sure save mine the next time.

Mega,

No biggie at all bro, you asked for our advice and some was given exactly that. I feel if the person doesnt read the fine print then that is clearly there mistake/fault.

You done everything right, no need to sweat it, I was just letting you know your options when selling something like this.

Our Saturday/early Sunday edition of the paper has the Best Buy ad and they'll be giving out a $50 gift card with the purchase of a 160gb system starting tomorrow. Good news, as I am also a schmuck who missed out on the awesome pre-Xmas deals!

No, I didn't know about that scam until this afternoon. I started researching online to see if there were other scams like that, and sadly there were.

I simply had a box to sell. I had it listed around Christmas time, as people often purchase used systems as gifts for others. In fact, I recently sold my newer model Xbox 360 box and packaging to a person who wanted it to pack their system as they moved overseas.

I've called eBay customer support to inform them of my concerns with the price, as I do NOT want to take advantage of someone, even if they cannot read a clear statement.

Here is the exact item description for the item; please note that the information has not changed at all. The text is large, easy to read, and not deeply imbedded in information that would make it easily overlooked.

Item Specifics

For sale is the original box for Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) 160GB console. This auction is only for the box--the PS3 console, controllers, or other related accessories are not included (except as noted below). This is intended for someone to use that has purchased a used 160GB PS3 console and intends to give it as a gift (or resell). The packaging is in like-new condition. I've kept the box in the closet since purchasing the PS3 two weeks ago.

Included are the following items:

box
packing material
booklets
composite cables

Original boxes are in high demand, as many people purchase used game consoles that don't include the box.

I am going to contact the winning bidder and confirm one final time that they are aware about what they are buying. I am not a dishonest person; if someone really wants to pay $100 for a box, then I will happily accept their money.

Thanks, and I hope you all understand where I'm coming from.

Updated: Here's the title of the auction:

160GB Sony PS3 box ONLY (no system) with FREE PS2 game!

Wow with system for $269 on bay. Use system, for $169' sell box for $100

Looks like Amazon is matching Best Buy's $50 GC deal. Let's see if Target or Walmart will raise the bet...

I bit for one, though it says it temporarily out of stock. Not quite sure what this deal is all about, but I don't see how you could go wrong ordering one.

FYI - For me it was $58.03 after shipping and estimated taxes

I'm not really expecting my order to go through, but if it does do you think I could actually tack on the 3 year squaretrade warranty for $7.99 since it is an electronics device sold for under $50? Does anyone know the maximum time limit after the original purchase of the PS3 I can buy the warranty?

LittleBigPlanet2 deal at Amazon.com. Pre-order the game (it releases in a few days) and get a $20 discount on a future Amazon purchase. I'm going to get Killzone 3 in February with the savings.

So, if we pre-ordered 6 months ago, does Amazon apply this future $20 discount since they have a "price guarantee"? Curious if I should re-preorder.

I have not seen this policy in writing, but my experience has been they give you whatever pre-order deals come along after you have placed the original order.

I've been waiting for a deal like this. In my experience, Amazon honors whatever the best deal/price is from the time of the pre-order until the game's release. That's kind of the point of pre-ordering--to lock in the best offer.

EDIT: Ninja'd by Weaselboy

EDIT2: I just jumped on this not realizing from joeblow's post that this is a $20 gift card type of credit (good on anything Amazon sells) and not just toward future video game purchases (which usually expire within 6-8 weeks).

Is the GT5 PS3 bundle selling for $299? If so then that might work.
