Seriously, people in this thread diacussing ”price gouging”…

…this is a non issue for non essential goods, it’s a free market and as I stated earlier we are discussiong toys, video games is the epitome of non essential goods.

This entire thread would have validity if we talked about essential goods like medicine, food or housing. For essential goods and services scalping and price gouging are real problems that must be combated.

Welcome to first world problems.
