Get Rich Quick: Sell 100 PS3s

I have no idea how he did it, but a consumer in Japan named “Eiji” has figured out a way to get his hands on 100 PS3s. That includes 20GB and 60GB versions. What does he plan to do with over $60k in PlayStation 3s? He plans on reselling them.

Apparently, he’s selling all 100 consoles on his own… Even if he sells all of the consoles at $1,000, he’ll make $100k – that’s a minimum of $40k in earnings, but there’s no way possible he could’ve done this alone. When you have a launch where people lined outside for days on end, one guy getting his hands on that many consoles just isn’t possible without a staff of people.

Smart guy. It was only a matter of time until selling consoles at launch would become an organized business for entrepreneurs to take advantage of. Looks like Eiji is just the first individual to take advantage of gamers, because companies have been doing it for years.

    No doubt in my brain that you’re intending to go far as a blogger. Kudos all over again for posting this subject material, magnificent.

  5. Thank you very much for the article friend. It helped me a lot. I also get some good idea to make money from your post. I wish I myself can make some income fast

  6. Hey, I just desired to let you know, I truly like the written material on your web page. But I am utilising Chromium on a machine running version 9.04 of Ubuntu and the search and sense aren’t pretty satisfying. Not a strong deal, I can still essentially understand the articles and search for info, but just desired to inform you about that. The navigation bar is form of challenging to use while using config I’m running. Continue to keep up the superb function!

    I should say, as much as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt support but lose interest after a whilst. Its as in case you had a good grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you need to take into consideration this from more than a single angle. Or possibly you shouldnt generalise so much. Its greater should you think about what other people might have to say as opposed to just going for any gut reaction on the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed procedure and giving other people who may read this the benefit from the doubt.
