Well since Target didn't charge me for the xbox 360 when I checked out, I'd say I made the most on that one.

I was only charged for Madden and Call of Duty back in the day.

[color= rgb(255, 0, 0)]Senior year in High School, skipped 2 or 3 days and went to Connecticut to camp out for the PS3.. Through a huge rain storm and all, met some cool people and it was an experience.. Profit was nice though [/color]

I know people make good money off this. Especially people who know idiots like my uncle who spent 3 times what the Wii is worth for my cousin to have it

i'll never camp out for a system but i was able to resell wii's the first year they came out. around christmas time, wii's were selling out everywhere but i found a best buy that just received a shipment. it was 1 per person but i just kept going back in and buying a wii. i ended up with about 20+ wii's. i would've kept buying some but i was running out of credit and my car was packed. i made about $150 on each system.

I did the same but I got $2000 from 2 launch day 60gb's from the ps3 main launch center in NYC. I also include ps3 shirts and other stuff from the launch event but $2000 was not bad with only two 60gb systems.
I bought 3 and kept 1 of them. Anyone who bought a 20gb that day was a fool

i paid 5 people $200 each to wait in line for me to get ps3's. i then proceeded to sell each ps3 for about $500 profit each. not bad for staying home and being warm.
