While the Wii U looks pretty awesome, what with that screen in the middle of the controller, the price, well, just wasn’t. It's £100 more than an Xbox starting at £250, and that's just for the legitimate "basic" pre-order. What if they're all sold out, but your kid must have one for Christmas? How about an eBay-special for just £555 plus shipping? Daylight robbery, perhaps?
To be fair, if you fancied making a quick buck, you could try your luck with the same thing. Grab yourself a pre-order and rinse some cash out of the gullible on eBay. All you'd need is a couple of those beauties and you've got enough for a shiny new iPhone 5. It's like taking candy from a baby. Probably. [eBay via NeoGAF via Kotaku]
