PS4 Worth Nearly $600 On eBay Right Now

Although the PlayStation 4 might be the most available new console in the brand's history, they're still worth plenty on eBay. Sellin' yours?

PS3s were going for over $2000 back when nobody could find one in late 2006 and while the PS4 isn't fetching that sort of price, they're still worth around $600. Remember, the PS4 remains sold out of most retailers, despite a few extra consoles being available on launch day.

An eBay representative told GameSpot that more than 13,000 PS4 units were sold on the online auction site in the four days after launch. That works out to about 2.3 PS4s sold every minute! Furthermore, around 17,000 current-gen systems were sold through eBay since the PS4 launched on November 15; obviously, a great many people are looking to upgrade and ditch their old console.

Personally, I'm not getting rid of my PS3 any time soon.

Not as bad as when the PS3 released. It was going for $1,500 to nearly $3,000 when it launched. LOL, my co worker stayed outside all night for the Wii instead and it was only going for less than half of what the PS3 was on ebay. He was bummed so he sold it to me for $50 more than what he paid because he was a nice guy. :)

Hm, I did not consider this. Could've made an extra 200 bucks from a pre-order...

You could sell a PS4 on eBay and get a nice desktop PC with an i5 or i7 with the extra dough. One guy offered an i5 with a Gtx 670 for a PS4 here. Very tempting.

$600 isn't really worth it. The PS4 is around $430 with taxes, shipping + insurance is another $25, ebay/paypal fees will be another $45.

It will only be about $100 profit, if that. Plus the risk that goes with selling a high priced electronic. Ebay usually sides with the buyer if something bad happens.

never ceases to amaze me what people will pay on ebay!
i remember when the vita came out in december i imported 2 of them and ended up selling the 3G model for almost twice what i paid for it!
even last week the mouse i had to swap out, i bought it from JB for 80 bucks, chucked it on ebay starting price 50 bucks and a week later its up to 117 with 3 days to go.
nah, i wont buy one for 80 and get it now im too lazy to go to the shops, ill spend 37 bucks+ more, and wait 10 days or so for it to arrive.
i always said aliens are abducting people in their sleep and removing their brains, but now im really starting to believe it!

O, and I FINALLY GOT MY XBOX ONE TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
sorry too excited couldent hold it in.
kudos to M$ im really surprised how quickly the update installed, especially after the whole wiiu debacle!
took me like half a hour to update it and set everything up, not bad, not bad at all!
exactly why XBLA will always be better than PSN!
PSN US and CA log on, crash servers go crying home down all launch day.
XBLA US, CA, and half of EU, and australasia, and its not only live and stable, but also FAST!
$ony could really learn something here.......

so love DR3, i honestly cant remember the last time a game put such a big smile on my face!
i mean come on, if 1000s of zombies on screen, plus a frigging lightsabre does not put a smile on your face than theres something seriously wrong with you!
i just hope will see more of this zany fun for the sake of fun in the near future..........

Good for you, sounds like you're having a lot of fun with it. Even though this is a Playstation site I don't think any of us can deny the Xbox had a far better selection of launch titles. Dead Rising 3 seems a decent game to hold one over until TitanFall.

its just a shame ryse is not as much fun.
the combat just feels so thin and basic.
i was really worried crytek working on this, just seemed like a genre that would not suit them and i was dead on.
and oh god is the acting cringe worthy!
really really hope M$ gives this franchise to someone else, people have been begging for a game that explores the most infamous and powerful empire of all time!
such a shame the realization of that dream has to be so lackluster.

I really don't see the appeal of Dead Rising or Left 4 Dead. I suppose I want my zombie games to be suspenseful...those 2 are just action movies, and I've never really been able to get into them.

I do want to see some about TitanFall though.

You're not aware that Australia has far less people than any other of the 13 markets the One is shipping to today and you were the first market to get the console? Of course you got a fast connection; no one else had the console yet.

I really pity anyone who forks out for this, what's the hurry, there isn't anything even decent on the console yet...

If you're paying $600+, that isn't smart thinking.

I could easily go back to any of the PS2 RPGs and have much more fun than any of the lauch titles for the new consoles.

Up here in Canada I think CBC reported a parent went to pick up PS4's with the family were going to buy 2 for themselves for various parts of the house and 5 more to sell on eBay.

Sorry, but I hare these jerks that do it. And I really do not understand people who will most likely purchase them from people like this. They must be consumer lemmings or something.

I remember this fiasco when the PS2 came out. Do you really get that desperate? I don;t think the shortage, if any, will last long. You are not going to have to wait until next Xmas, unless Sony comes out with a second and better gen of the PS4.

Nuts.... but keep playing!

It's the responsibility of the patient to take advantage of the consumer lemmings. Saying no to easy cash for doing next to nothing, over something as silly as a game console isn't something I'm likely to do. It's a purely luxury item that none of us actually need. If someone wants to pay me hundreds of dollars to compensate their lack of foresight, who am I to say no?

I already sold mine for that price before the launch :P It's pretty nice when all you have to do is change the free Amazon shipping address. If you've already got yours in-hand, the shipping fees, eBay fees, and sales tax you paid will greatly lower your profit margin. It's not a cut-and-dry $200.

Bought myself a custom English hacked Final Fantasy 3 NES cart and full Mirror's Edge comic run with the profit. Good trade, imo. That completes my FF1-12 collection.
