NBCRightNow.com - As soon as the Playstation Four arrived, it was gone. The brand new video game console released Friday is already sold out at most stores.
But locals have taken to websites like Ebay.com and Craigslist.com to sell the popular gaming console for extra cash for the upcoming holiday season.
"I think the reason that so many people are doing it this year is because many people probably either heard stories about the last generations of consoles and they thought 'boy, this time I'm going to be ready to do it,'" says Nate, who is selling his console on Craigslist. "That was my thinking and I think I'm not the only one who thought that."
Most listings on Craigslist.com are almost $200 to $300 more than the $399.99 retail price.
"Me and my husband realized how much you can make off of them if you really wanted to make money," says Angela of West Richland.
The next new video game console, Microsoft's Xbox One, goes on sale next Friday the 22nd for $499.99.
There are already listings online to flip them for $400 to $500 more than the retail price.
