I wouldn't be caught dead in some geeky shit like that.

He spends most of the novel riding around the park, drinking whiskey (at one point Hammond describes him as a drunk) and attempting to restore order. He is later attacked by a pack of Velociraptors, but survives by wedging himself into a pipe. He manages to kill a few of them (one with a rocket launcher), and eventually escapes the island with the other survivors. He killed at least two raptors and the adult tyrannosaur during the course of the story."
Supply has stayed constant in the face of increasing demand. This caused a shortage, which results in raised prices as buyers compete with one another to make the best offer (pay the most). Supply isn't the issue here at all.

I think Zamp is saying that a sufficient amount of CE on the market has shifted from retail to second hand ownership (rather than simply being committed to use) that the supply itself hasn't really gone anywhere. In anticipation of the impending release, demand increases. Looks like there are strange estimations being made about the number of secondhand CEs being put up for sale compared to the preordered retail stock, but maybe he knows something about this situation that I don't.
And for the record, the CE is in stock all over the fucking place. Sears, Amazon, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Kmart, Gamestop, you name it. I guess the people currently shelling out double were not aware of this, or perhaps there's something special about the preordered package.
