eBay has instituted a new policy when it comes to Sony
PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii pre-order auction listings. After cleaning up the site
of PS3 pre-order listings, the company has instituted even more strict
guidelines that could put a damper on sellers looking to rake in the big bucks
selling the consoles and should help protect buyers in the process.
In a posting on the
eBay "General Announcements" board, the following restrictions/policy
updates have been put into play regarding PS3 and Wii pre-order auctions:
The new policy should make buyers feel a little bit better
when bidding on a PS3 or Wii auctions in the coming weeks, but eBay is a big
place and rogue listings are still sure to pop up from time to time.
quote: The people who resell on Ebay don't make build them and hence can't increase number of consoles available.
quote: The only difference is that EB Games and GameStop require you to pay their price, but the ebay resellers allow you to bid what you think the console is worth.
