I need some advice from those of you who keep and sell inventory.

I need some advice from those of you who keep and sell inventory.

Would it be wise to buy around five Nintendo Switches around July and peddle off them in December? I tried getting a 3DS this December and they were all sold out, so I'd assume it would be even extra bad with the Switch. How much money would I be looking to make from this?

If you can get your preorders it's usually guaranteed profit-- if they actually sell out. If they don't and you're stuck with a few units, they can always be returned.

How much depends on the supply. Nintendo is probably going to churn out a billion of these pieces of shit, and their demand is fairly low because no one cares about Nintendo any more. The last time they made anything worth a damn was the 3DS.

That's why every homeless motherfucker in the country camps out the week before to snatch up pre-releases. Scalpers gonna scalp.

The best money is selling to foreigners. Overseas customers will pay a bundle for a US unit if their launch date is still months off...

Foreigners like to steal so be careful dealing with them.

If you had done this with the original Wii you could have made decent money. With this latest paperweight, sorry I mean white elephant, beg your pardon I mean console, we're not guaranteed either the high demand or scarcity of the Wii launch.

You may be able to speculate longer term by buying now and holding it in mint condition for 10+ years or however long it takes to get ironic retro appeal. People are speculating silly money on stuff like the Star Wars Lego kits at the moment.

Dont, the Switch will flop. Its gimmick is based on a gimmick that was a flop (although, personally, I love my own Wii U)

I think they have a world-wide release date (at least Japan, US and Europe) and they don't region lock anymore.
