Online Auctions for PS2

Some people really do want this console, and they're willing to pay a premium for it

If you go to eBay UK today and search "PlayStation 2", you meet with some 100 auctions, most of which bear the slogan "PlayStation 2 guaranteed November 24th!" or similar. The highest an auction on eBay has reached so far is £500, whereas searching on Yahoo reveals £400 auctions. It certainly isn't as ridiculous as the £600-1000 bids we were expecting, but it's a stab in the wrong direction. You'll remember that we reported on the PS2 going for nearly $1000 in some auctions in America last month. It's not quite up to those levels yet, but in the next few days you can expect panicked parents eager to secure a unit for Christmas diving on to the Internet in search of festive bliss. Aiming to create a gaping hole in your wallet? Our advice : do it quick, these deals won't be around for long, and may be your last chance until next year.
