No scalping in general should not be illegal.
In case of tickets it makes sense, but not with mass manufactured gaming systems.

Tickets, such as baseball tickets, are limited in quantity simply because the capacity of the stadion is limited. They literally cannot give out more than that.
But PlayStation 5 and XB systems will be produced as long as there is demand, so if another person wants one, another system will be manufactured.
This is completly different from tickets.

With tickets, they are simply sold out, more tickets are not possible.
This does not apply to PS5/XBSeries. You only have to wait a little longer, but you will eventually get one.

And again, why should these scumbags be let off the hook when even retailers can't legally gouge prices like that? 

They can, but they dont. No company has the right to tell another company for how much they are allowed to sell their products.

They dont because deviating from the suggested price puts them at a disadvantage compared to their competitors.
