You're the kind of person that frustrates me (I use this term to be nice). The typical "buy one and see what I can get for it". If you didn't want one, and don't plan to play it, leave it for someone who does. But no, you buy it with the purpose of selling it.
For me I got one last night before launch at a store that I frequent quite often. They had a small allocation (20-30 units) and they were selling them this AM in a draw, to keep it fair to people. They advertised it on their door this week to let people know. I wasn't planning on buying one yet, but I just got the itch (hey, I love new tech). When I went in and saw they were doing a draw, I was like COOL, good for them as I support the non-big-box stores run by people who live in the community. The manager said they had some put aside for staff, friends, and family, and if I wanted one I could have buy one. I looked at the unopen box and fate was tempting me. Alas when I asked when I should come back the next day (launch day) to pick it up, they said I could by it now (that night). SO alas I did.
Now, the question for me is what games do I really want to play on it? I am not sure yet. I hvae my Xbox One coming next week and there are games will play on it for sure, including some thrid party titles (e.g. COD) that my friends want to play online with me. If I don't keep the unit, I will sell it to a friend for exactly what I paid. I didn't buy it with the intention of selling it for profit, or as so many people say "see what I can get for it". Heck, if someone other than a friend is searching for one in my area I will for sure sell it for what I paid, as it may make some family or kid happy they got one. That in itsefl would be cool too.
Anyhow, sorry for the rant......just hated seeing the post I quoted.
