My brother in law works for walmart and my sister (not a gamer at all) told me yesterday that she's been buying Xbox series X consoles* for $450 and selling them for $550. I said "YOU FOOL! Get me one."

I should get a few...but this has me thinking.

*She somehow knows exactly when they go on sale and he has the 10% discount

Seems she is selling them at a very low price. She could easily sell them for 700, 800 dollars.

That's why I called her a fool! She says she can get me one this week. I hope that's the case but after seeing threads saying that they're all sold out for the year, I guess we'll just have to see. I'll call her in an hour or two. Don't really want one for myself just yet but if she can get one, why not?

Good luck to you man! I feel envious.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

This is fucked up. I hate scalpers as much as anyone else, but it's within their right to sell of their purchased good at any price they want, and not get robbed at gunpoint because of that.Hope the police catches these robbers.

Hope you go to prison



Screw scalpers.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!
