The cheapest PlayStation I can find on ebay is £700 (digital edition), literally double it's retail price. If scalpers are having any trouble selling it's only because they charge so much.

"Both the XSX and PS5 suffer from this same issue where both have sold out in record time and sold record numbers, but the harder question is, did the stock actually sell this fast or was it a simple transition moving from one warehouse to another?"

If scalpers didn't exist they would have all sold to actual consumers.

Although I agree that the prices are ridiculously high. I believe the main reason they are not selling them is because of the economy. We had a booming economy pre-covid and if we were still on it people would feel more secure about spending. Sadly there's still a lot of uncertainty and scalpers are getting screwed over which you could see as a positive since they will have at some point have to lower it to regular price just to recoup their money.
