    325 with free shipping isn't bad, since you aren't paying tax. anyone who pays more than that is a moron :o

    kind of reminds me how ps3s were selling for 1000$ when they first came out. After that there was a huge drop..

    I sold a few 360s for 900$ at launch also

    This happens with every console release, no matter what the supply or the demand was. PlayStation 2's eBay charade kept the 3 going, and more of this is shown with the slim's availability. Hell, even walking out of the WalMart at midnight I got offered 500 bucks for my Wii.

    Any major electronic release where the false delusion that demand is limited is going to sweep up huge profit for reselling. iPhones, consoles, elmos, etc
