I took this at Pacific Mall...and the store Canada Computers is selling this 20gb ver. for $1499 CAD. There were 2 other stores that have PS3s for sale. One store had just one 60gb, and the other store has 3 units 1-20gb and 2-60gb (20gb for $2000 and 60gb for $2500) and he bought it from ebay as well...
I never knew this PS3 profit making stuff would go as far as out in the public....Ebay's highest bid on the PS3 is @ $20000USD which I rather buy a car (even though im not old enough to drive a car...i wouldnt be this stupid).
Now my dad heard the news about how much people are making at ebay, he wished that he was in line for the PS3 so he can make a profit for himself (not for me as a extra early christmas present T_T)

i guess i ain't going to buy anything from Canada Computers

it's one thing when a person gets lucky and flips it for profit...

but its another thing when a business openly gouges their customer

The funny part is all the bad hype about the PS3, yet people are buying them for $25k USD on eBay. Does anyone remember the 360's eBay prices? Can't wait for the Wii also.
