ive just been watching them and with 5 games there going for around £300-330, i suppose the closer it gets to christmas the more they will fetch is the shops dont get more stock but according to the argos website they are getting more stock and they dont have preorders to fill?

Surely if you don't want two consoles you can offer it to someone at the normal retail price, which is what you must have paid, unless you even got a freebie by mistake, Mr Scrooge?

I didn't realise SKYLINE TAX also applies to non Skyline related items too!

Tis the season for mugging the less fortunate GTR_Cymru...

This isn't really the place for opportunistic cash-ins carterjohn. If you want to sell it for near twice the price you paid for it stick it on eBay and don't even bother posting a thread about it.

Well, it's my opinion. I noticed Cems thread after and to be honest my opinion hasn't changed (and I've posted as such in the moderator forum :chuckle:) I think it's morally reprehensible to be out to scam fellow Skyline forum members in this season of "giving"...

In regular business you're paying for someones time, expertise, etc when you pay higher than the face value for an item/service. With this whole Wii/360 opportunism you're literally only paying loads extra because someone is out to cash in at your expense. I feel sorry for parents who have heard about this console too late in the day to be able to pre-order it, and are now in a position where they are essentially being forced into spending twice or in some cases three times the retail value.

Well said Durzel, I don`t have a problem spending £300.00 on my Niece as i`m sure Mick doesn`t for his boys, it`s the principle of being mugged by our own community!!

Although i did like the picture with the newspaper in it, picture the headlines "Wii held to ransom, £300 secures freedom" lol
