    There are 6 Circuit City stores with midnight launches and one is up the road from me.

    They will give vouchers out at 10pm to the first 100 people. The event starts at 8pm.

    I already see PS3s on ebay for $1500.

    I can't believe the Wii is coming out the same day.

    Hmmmm.

    $250 for the Wii or double that for the PS3?

    The policy is only for pre-sale of the PS3.

    One could get past this by simply listing the item on 11/17.

    1. Only one of each console can be listed per eBay account prior to the launch of the console (PS3 is expected to be available on 11/17/06, Wii on 11/19/06).

    2. The seller must only accept payment through PayPal,

    3. and have at least 50 feedback with a 98% or greater positive rating so that they qualify for PayPal Buyer Protection.

    4. The pre-sale item must be listed in the 3, 5, 7 or 10-day formats, and cannot use Buy It Now.

    5. The listing must include a photo of your pre-order receipt in the description.

    As you may remember from last year, I bought 3 XBox 360's and sold them online for quite a large profit. I'm doing the same this year with the PS3, but it's going to be much harder to obtain them.

    I've already got my plan down though, and I'm spending almost all the money I have ($5,000) I've gone around and done the research for which store I'm going to buy from. Since the stores are limiting sales of one PS3 per customer, I'm hiring day laborers to camp out starting on Wednesday for $100 per person per day. On Friday morning, I'm going to the store prior to the opening and giving each "employee" the right amount of money to buy the console. When they exit the store, I'll be out front to exchange the PS3 for their $200. I'll have a friend in another car in case one of them decides to run or something.

    Should be a good venture, but it has really been a job doing all the research.

    How much profit are you planning to make with all that effort?

    As BM said up top, they are already going for $1500 on eBay, and that number will climb after the release when there are none to be had and XMas approaches.

    If I buy only the 60GB ones at $599 ($650 after tax), I can buy 7 of them. If I sell all of those for only $1500/piece, I'll profit $9,100.

    If I buy the 20GB ones at $499 ($530 after tax), I can buy 9 of them, giving me around $11,000-$12,000.

    It's going to be nice though.
