PlayStation 3 Prices On eBay Skyrocketing

Thanks to the recent - and very drastic - shipment cut, PS3s are going to be even more rare than initially anticipated. So of course, this means that consumers are already hitting the panic button.

As of last week, the highest-priced PS3 auctions on eBay were around $1,500, but all of a sudden, some are now double that. Most have long since passed the $1,000 mark and heading up towards $2,000, even the ones that won't be arriving on November 17. Because half of GameStop/EB's PS3 preorders won't be filled on Friday, there are many auctions going that won't be able to deliver the system this weekend (as originally promised).

But that's apparently not stopping those determined to land a PS3 for the holidays. GameStop/EB can't give an exact date for when the second batch of systems will arrive, but hopefully, they'll be able to fill all preorders by the end of the month. If not, some eBayers may be waiting longer than they thought for their console...a console they spent several thousand dollars on.
