Default WARNING to early sellers of Wii & PS3

I did not know this but an employee from Game Stop just told me that Nintendo and Sony are looking for early sellers of the game system. You can get fine up to $3000 if they catch you.

So you have to close the deal on the date it gets released. You can not do it any earlier than that.

Just want to let everyone know about it whoever is selling their reservations for the game system.

I believe the deal is that you sign a contract that you won't sell before a certain date BUT if someone does start selling early you can't really get pinched for being second.

Maybe.

No, the AUTHORIZED NINTENDO RESELLERS. See in the real world outside of the hustle you need to be given the OK to sell someone's product.

eBay is supposed to be for used products but now people can do whatever cause it would run a fool out of business trying to fight all the UNauthorized auctions.

now that makes sense. the poster saying that consumers selling their pre orders on ebay would be fined is just insane.

A big outfit like Wal-Mart, Target or Circuit City would laugh at a $3000 penalty for selling PS3's ahead of time. That's petty cash for large stores like that.

I think the big threat would be Sony no longer selling to them. That would get their attention.
