Selling PS4 and XBOX1 both pre-ordered on day 1.

Hey guys, I have both systems pre-ordered and guaranteed delivery/pickup on release date at a local gamestop. I'm not a big console gamer anymore and am looking to sell. This is only for the lower 48 states, US only. I accept paypal gifts and true poker funds. PM me your offer, best offer wins. If the offer goes above 650 for the ps4 and 750 for the xbox 1, I will ship free overnight, otherwise add 20 bucks for shipping to your bid if you win. I will stop accepting bids for the consoles at 6am PST on the console's release day at which point I will notify winner. I will post pics of the receipts for reservations if requested. If you have any questions please feel free to post here or PM me. Thanks.

Why wouldn't it be allowed?

I was going to do the same later this month when I receive my consoles in the UK.

I'm pretty sure neither of these consoles actually cost this much.

i wrote a ton and deleted it, but to summarise, i don't think there should be stuff sold on here that was bought purely to resell and make a profit. i know motive would be hard to interpret in some cases, but a decent rule would be 'nothing can be sold above RRP'.

fwiw i have zero problems with that stuff being on ebay, but i see this place (perhaps incorrectly) as a small, friendly community where that kind of profiteering shouldn't really sit. conversely i guess you could argue you're just providing a service to people who want it, but it seems out of place to me, and i don't really care for the silent auction format.

but yeah, i'm not the mod of this forum and i'm guessing it is allowed, so no reason thestuntman should have to delete at all.

Re: Selling PS4 and XBOX1 both pre-ordered on day 1.

Ah cool I was afraid I was going to have to go into yet another argument about supply and demand economics but if it's purely from a community point of view then I guess I can see where you are coming from.

However I'd still disagree and say that when I ordered three consoles early in the year I had the foresight to see that there would likely be a shortage and that I would be able to turn them for a profit, and perhaps freeroll a ps4 for myself with that profit. I will be putting them up for sale on Ebay, here and a couple of other places and tbh if I put them up for sale here I'd probably sell them for less than elsewhere because of the ease in which transactions are done via, for example, poker site moneys, instead of paypal etc. so buyer and seller would get a better deal, and I guess you can say that's down to the community we have.

If people don't like it then I won't put them up on here it's really no difference to me as they will 100% sell very quickly wherever I list them.

Yeah my thoughts were similar to Yetis. In a community with other like people, I dont really like anyone that is trying to flip something for purely profit. It is like that on alot of other forums too and people definitely call you out on it. Ebay is fine but after 12% or whatever it is they take now it may be tough but who really knows.

Re: Selling PS4 and XBOX1 both pre-ordered on day 1.

yes. most other forums like this with classifieds sections would generally tend to have the following rules :

1) nothing can be sold above RRP
2) you must state a price, if offered that price you must accept. offers etc and negotiation must take place in the thread.
3) you cannot advertise elsewhere whilst simultaneously advertising on the forum

anyway, no matter how i feel, this is still a pretty unforgivable awful derail, sorry about that stuntman.

Re: Selling PS4 and XBOX1 both pre-ordered on day 1.

Is there a minimum bid required for you to sell i.e reserve price like ebay does? To be fair the offers should be posted in the thread, not sent in PM imo.

For the most part I agree, but on another pool forum I have seen it work before...they list an exact time the bids are required by (including the time zone) and anything listed afteward does not count. I have a feeling the OP will be looking for more than the minimum anyway just to make a profit to which people can just pre order still or wait a bit so it's probably a moot point.

But in no way does that obligate the seller to sell. There is nothing here forcing him too. People also post bids and then disappear which makes it nothing more than a shill bid. An asking Price SHOULD ALWAYS BE REQUIRED

I don't disagree on that. Also I would recommend escrow on the purchase receipt proof to be sent to mod before sending payment just to cover the buyer. OP has been a member since 09 with 2k posts so he isn't a newbie...but just for safety reasons OP should have no issue sending the purchase receipt to a reputable mod before the winning buyer sends the payment to him. If he does obvious red flag.

Yeah in no way am I bashing OP and saying he isnt credible. It just shouldnt be allowed and on the majority of forums where you sell stuff it isnt regardless how reputable you are.

Sorry guys, I took it off the market due to the backlash I got. Thanks for the interest though. I'd rather avoid ebay due to their fees and such, and avoid craigslist due to inherent dangers, but looks like I'll have to suck it up and choose those two options.

How so? Just post a price. Simple enough. What is so difficult about that? Afraid you may only make 100$ instead of 300$?

I got backlash because a few people think it was wrong of me to flip something here for profit, since 2+2 is a community that tries to help each other out, which is true.

Re: Selling PS4 and XBOX1 both pre-ordered on day 1.

This is true but I think it is also how you went about it trying to auction it off for as much profit as you could get also didnt help. If you woulda come on here asking for $600 each I highly doubt you would have gotten all the backlash. Just my opinion though. May be interested in the Xbox1 lol

Re: Selling PS4 and XBOX1 both pre-ordered on day 1.

Well ok, I was looking for 575 + shipping OBO for the PS4 and 700 + shipping OBO for the XBOX1. This is for the systems only, NO games are included. Systems are the North American version ie. NTSC. I accept Paypal (send as a gift), and True poker. I will provide a photo once I pick up the systems and I do have the pre-order receipts if you want that photo uploaded. If you would like to use an escrow for someone to hold the cash, I am ok with that provided it's someone that we both know and trust. I will ship internationally and domestically. For shipping, I will use whichever carrier you want me to use, provided that they have delivery confirmation and insurance. If you have any other questions please post here, or PM me. Thanks.
