eBay updates its policies on PS3, Wii pre-order listings

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:

  • Only one of each console can be listed per eBay account prior to the launch of the console (PS3 is expected to be available on 11/17/06, Wii on 11/19/06).
  • The seller must only accept payment through PayPal, and have at least 50 feedback with a 98% or greater positive rating so that they qualify for PayPal Buyer Protection.
  • The pre-sale item must be listed in the 3, 5, 7 or 10-day formats, and cannot use Buy It Now.
  • The listing must include a photo of your pre-order receipt in the description.

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.

True enough in most cases and in most cases I know that already.

But what I said wasn't commentary - its actually fact this time around....several places haven't beaten around the bush, its been announced in articles throughout the 'net and including right here at Dailytech....due to overwhelming short supply pre-order doesn't guarantee you'll get a PS3.

As for EB and EBX being owned by the same place, yep -- I know this too..I remember buying PC games back when the 486 was still in style from EB.
