PS3 Ebay Craziness begins

So it looks like every EB Games (et al) employee who get themselves a PS3 pre-order didn't waste any time putting them up on ebay for auction.

Starting prices range from the Nutty-as-Kutaragi $1000 to Kim-Jong-Il-Kinda-Crazy  $7900.

Bidding is active on those in the low four digits and ceiling-du-jour seems to be about $1200. And that's with 5 weeks to go.

It will be interesting to see how high it goes and what the upper end of the enthusiast-price-elasticity-scalping-curve looks like.

At this point though, I'm wondering whether Sony shouldn't have taken 100k of those 400k US units, gold-plated them, and sold them for $2500 :-)
