umm the last post before mine was only dated either first of march or january of 2008, so what's your point? my point is as a business owner in a competitive market you need to be able to leave room for a general 10-20% markup to cover overhead and salery costs. Asking almost double the MSRP to me just does not make sense in hopes to make profit? That is what we use as an expression 'Newfie'. Buy high sell low?? That's like going into the fire pits at the exchange and offering stocks of Orange Juice for $2.00/each when you just bought them for $100/each?? think before you speak.
Aren't Canadians supposed to be friendly? The reason why I said that is because this posted was started on 1/07, which was 2 MONTHS after the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii hit the market. Now, if you know anything about a game console release you know that they are VERY difficult to find in retail stores for a period of time after the initial launch, and January being 2 months after the launch and also the holiday shopping season prices will be inflated, which is why at the time of the ORIGINAL post this was a good deal. Obviously people were paying prices much higher then the MSRP just to get their hands on one.
I don't care what the person before you said, what matters is when the original post was made. Why am I wasting my time with this?
