No because CE is sold out. I should have foreseen this and bought 10 copies, then resold for double the price. Damn me but kudos to basic economic principles of scarcity and demand.

If the demand is there and scarcity becomes an issue, that means supply goes down, which raises the price of the product.

Try this.

It should be the first result. (Not intended as condescending)

Raising the price raises the amount supplied.

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.

Unless you're saying that raising the price means nobody is buying and therefore, the supply doesn't dwindle. Otherwise, huh?

This is a stark contrast from your first statement. Honestly, I have no idea wtf you're talking about.

You: (-) supply, (=) demand, (+) price
Him: (=) supply, (+) demand, (+) price

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.
