it always takes two idiots for that, one that asks for so much and another one whos willing to pay that price
the later will hopefully realize theres a much cheaper way to get a xim apex, once the store issues are solved things like that should stop pretty quickly

What about the company that, time after time, doesnít update their store, and causes this whole scalper situation? You canít call people idiots who can take a 100.00 product and make 500. Odin, we know youíre loyal, but you come off as a tool, towing the company line, post after post.

I call people making 400 dollars profit by another name.

I'm sorry I don't agree at all. While the store has had issues on new releases (xim 3, xim 4, and now apex), the store has had issues only during these immediate releases. After a week it usually calms down and everyone is happy. If a company like Apple can't handle orders for when their new products come out (the amount of times I've been screwed on order dates...) then you would also expect some hiccups here as well. But here's the biggest issue. Its not ObsIV or Od1n's fault either. They warned the company that handles their transactions what was about to happen, and THEY did not properly handle the situation. And when that failed, OBSiV took the store down to make sure everyone would get taken care of.

Is this ideal? No. But at least they are trying to do everyone right. Now people should get off their arm chairs and stop telling people how to run their company, or at least give some feedback (like the pre ordering system) that can actually help them out for the next time.

Or if you can't handle the small batches, just wait a @#$% week when things cool down.

How I see the situation, the XIM store is fine. Just not designed to survive the volumes of customers hitting it at launch day.
I'm pretty sure OBsIV can invest in a superstore (amazon or ebay like) that can survive such events that happen once every 4-5 years. But then APEX will not be 99.99 but 199.99
Will you be more happy then ?

I don't think Odin is being a tool, i have to agree with him personally.  People who buy products from scalpers are idiots, and they are what is wrong with this world.  They are the reason why we get broken/incomplete games these days due to creating a market for DLC (which used to never be a thing).  People who buy DLC are in the same boat with the exception of a few games like Witcher 3, where the DLC was actually expanding the base game by 20-30 hours.  We wonder why we get all this crap with microtransactions?  It is the very same people buying from those scalpers that create a market for it.  Shame...Shame....Shame....
