Forums - Sony Discussion - So...I may have to sell my PS4 preorder

I did not intend to do this but I may become a scalper.  I'm already seeing PS4 preorders go up to $800.  I have the KZ bundle with Plus on preorder on Amazon.  They just ran out of PS4s and so has Gamestop apparently.  PS3 still has an awesome lineup including a REAL Ratchet this Fall so I don't even feel like I need PS4 right away.  I think I'm gonna take advantage of this offer because you only get one chance to make hundreds of dollars of profit like this per gen.  I'm a college student and need the money anyway so people with disposable income are welcome to pay over $1000 for me to change the shipping address.  Gotta love limited supply!

Anyone been in this situation before and which decision did you make?  Did you sell or keep?  Did you regret your decision or were you happy at the end?  When is the best time to sell a preorder profit wise?

EDIT:  I am being patient and I do really want it at launch so I'll start my bidding at $1000 a couple weeks before launch and see if I get any bites.  If no one bids then I'll keep it and enjoy KZ and Knack on launch day.  If they do then I'll enjoy all the awesome PS3 titles coming this holiday (see first post on page 2).

*cries* Why are you and Pezus doing this to me?!?

 

OT: a lot of people buy multiple PlayStations at launch for this exact reason

Normally I don't agree with these things, at all. But I've been in university - twice - so I understand where you are coming from. I guess ... be like Nike and Just do it.

 



 

Playstation = The Beast from the East

Sony + Nintendo = WIN! PS3 + PSV + PS4 + Wii U + 3DS


I wouldn't do it, just keep it till the games come out

I have a ps4 pre ordered myself, but i don't intend to use it till a jrpg, or some decent game comes out

My holiday will be spent playing final fantasy x hd or gta 5 on my PS3 :P



Then you better damn hope that the PS4 does not have a sluggish start. I can understand your situation, but not come back here crying that you blew $1000+ on PS4s and can't sell them.
