The market's going to be overly saturated with resold PS3s. I hope he gets stuck with all of them.

Too bad for this guy, that I heard that PS3 auction scalping in Japan wasn't as high as expected... and we are already seeing some game SW being sold in 4000 yen price range... Hope he loses the money that he paid towards those poor chinese guys who stood in line for them.

No real effort? I would think it would take quite a bit of effort to get a 100 PS3s at launch.

Because I'd do it too. I have no moral quandaries about a few techies or hardcore gamers not getting their hands on the latest toy before Christmas. If Sony wanted to do something about this, they wouldn't have created a console that relied on a new storage medium and a kra-z processor.

Does he explain how he did it? Hiring people to stand in lines? He can't be in 100 places at once, and if they all sold ASAP he'd have to have tons of preorders or tons of people involved.
