    Yes, but I think it greatly depends on location. I live in PA, right outside of Philadelphia, and have never seen one on store shelves.

    If you try to sell locally then maybe you can get that much, if somebody is desperate. I wouldn't try and flip it on ebay, because these are being sold there for $350-$400 (system only), and after the ebay and paypal fees, shipping costs, and the tax that you paid on it, then the profit margin is very slim. Good luck!

    Yes. Nintendo says it's due to shortages on parts they use.

    THanks man. So Craigslist assholes flagged my post for selling it above 300... I did 385. Well fuck them too.

    And because of the reasons I've mentioned, I'm cautious to use Ebay. I've tried Offerup and Letgo, but I haven't gotten replies yet. My next months' rent is due on the 24th of next month and I'm kinda worried.

    Did you already buy it? If you did and you are worried about rent then why didn't you just not buy it?

    I took a risk, and thought it'd sell fast with profit.

    No sympathy for scalpers being unable to turn a quick profit. Much schadenfreude.

    Amount available differs greatly depending on where you live. Apparently they are ready to get where you live, but in Vegas they are always gone the day they get in.

    Seem to be out where I am... but sometimes it's tricky to know. Some dumb stores of the stores I have been to... have had display boxe... without any actual units.

    Haven't seen them in stores, but there's a lot on craigslist for decent prices. I got mine for $300 with BOTW, a 128gb sd card, and a screen protector. It was used, but it came with the box and everything and was practically brand new. There's a lot of scalpers, but also a lot of reasonable sellers, too.

    One could also say it's an ass move to purposely buy a console that's hard to get just to sell for profit. The reason being that you could have left it for a person to buy at msrp, but then took that away and make anyone who wants one forced to pay higher prices because they couldn't find it in stores because of people like you. Just saying. If $100 really makes the difference for your rent, you should probably reevaluate your income and expenses to fix having to even worry about scalping.

    They seem to be trickling back in stock, slowly. Use BrickSeek to find one locally in stock.

    Calm down dude.. You took a risk and it fell through. There's no reason to spaz out here. Your only making yourself look bad.. Just ignore it
