We've had people here in Indy camped out, waiting for days in the freezing rain, hoping to buy one as soon as they "officially" go on sale just so they can turn around and make a mint (they hope) on e-bay.

I'm thinking the difference in price from retail to the outrageous e-bay bids is the "cost of impatience".

Just think of all the bee stuff you could buy instead!

Same thing here. Have to wonder about the inteligents of the people buying those off of E-bay.

Have to wonder why the manufactor didn't just auction them off on E-bay.

i'll get excited about a system when VR is perfected and i can go into a room, turn up the heat, and lay on a beach in Hawaii in the middle of an Oregon winter!!!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

 :shock: WOW  :shock:

I just went to that link. Some are going for $5,000  :?  :?  :?

That's ten times the price. What idiot would do that?

ATTENTION PLEASE!!!!!

If you just really have to throw your money away, I could put it to good use.

I was watching a post since last night, when a fellow at EBay posts $10,000.00 for a PS3 with controller and 2 games, he is already down to $3999.00 and dropping quickly. He didn't notice how much competition is out there. It makes me wonder, are ANY of these people in the line are actually buying them for themselves or are they all headed to EBay?

I don't think your ideal dream machine is too far away, we just need someone to BARELY figure out how to do it and with a year, it is common place on the market in a full and rich version. Paradgym shifts in technology are way behind the curve, computers (even simpler ones) do nearly everything we currently need them to do - so we need EMERSION PC to boost the next generation of technology. I honestly believe it is not far away, surely in our own life-times.

My gradfather used to say that it doesn't sell its overpriced.  As long as somebody is will to pay $5000 for a new toy it's not overpriced.  I spent over $16K when I bought my truck (F-150 4X4)

I have some gamer friends, they enjoy this stuff, I personaly go out of it cause I dont have money and would rather put it to good use, Bee's or plants.

I could easly put 500 bucks towards an extractor... Even though I really dont need it.

There is a site that is called "smash my toy" or something. These people line up for days for whatever is on offer and infront of all of the people in the queue, smash it to bits. :shock:
