Wholesale Playstation 3- Crutial Facts

By: Boricua
It is not possible to get brand new wholesale playstation 3 with the definition of true wholesale, from distributors online, period. Despite what many scammers would have you believe- if you try to get a PlayStation 3 in this way, the best scenario is that you will get it slightly cheaper than the retail price, but with a lot more hassle and worry.

The worst case is that you will not get your playstation 3, and some unscrupulous crook will get your money. Why? The first answer is simple market economics. The reason wholesale prices are low is because of the cost of dealing with individual customers.

Any company, which is selling to individuals- will have to encounter these higher costs- and so will not be able to offer wholesale prices.

The second reason is the shortage of units of wholesale playstation 3. Sony manufacturing centers in Japan and China have been unable to produce enough units to flood the market at its previous launch. Anybody who does have access to a PS3 today has a strong incentive to sell on to a retailer, who will be able to get a good price for them if viewed in the business perspective.

Finally, Sony exerts control over the pricing of the playstation 3 in the US market, as things are slightly different in Japan, where retailers are allowed to set their own prices. They have the legal and economic power to ensure that the ps3 is sold only for the official prices- that is, $499 for the standard version, and $599 for the premium version. Hopefully this gets through many entrepreneurial minds.

So, what are all these outlets offering the PS3 at wholesale prices for? Mostly, it is just a marketing gimmick as entrepreneurship standpoint. Some of them may really be wholesalers who are trying to break their agreement with Sony and sell the PS3 direct to customers. If that is the case, they are likely to be in legal trouble fairly soon, and they are not good people to be trusted with your hard earned money, in the most likely event.

Where do you go if you cannot get the Sony PS3 at wholesale prices? Look for the best of the retailers. Their prices might seem a lot higher than those of the wholesalers, but in fact some will probably be offering bundles that give you good value for money.

You will probably be in the desire of getting extra games and controllers anyway, so why not let shops include them in the package for you? That is the way to get if you want to see it that way for this 2007 year as a wholesale playstation 3 instead of the many current distribution scams online.
