I wonder how frequent this is. Price gouging is illegal in many places, so how many scaulpers would actually try to sue for robbery when they could be countersued themselves. Then again, we are talking about video game consoles, not basic necessity products.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

My brother in law works for walmart and my sister (not a gamer at all) told me yesterday that she's been buying Xbox series X consoles* for $450 and selling them for $550. I said "YOU FOOL! Get me one."

I should get a few...but this has me thinking.

*She somehow knows exactly when they go on sale and he has the 10% discount

It's a shame that retailers still aren't putting anti-scalping measures into place. Restocks are selling out in seconds because there are no anti-bot measures in place. Retailers are letting employees buy more than one console with their employee discounts, which they are subsequently reselling at jacked up prices on eBay. These launches are the worst handled console launches I have ever seen.

I dont really care that much about scalpers. If there are people out there dumb enough to pay 1000$+ for a 500$ console, then let them.

Can't feel sympathy for them. Sure some may need to earn their keep to pay bills, but how they work isn't something I applaud.

Next time they should bring some muscle that can beat the shit out of the douchebag robber then.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

This is fucked up. I hate scalpers as much as anyone else, but it's within their right to sell of their purchased good at any price they want, and not get robbed at gunpoint because of that.Hope the police catches these robbers.

Seems she is selling them at a very low price. She could easily sell them for 700, 800 dollars.

It's hard to prevent especially when regular people are buying these consoles then seeing how much they go for online and thinking... "hmm I can wait" and selling their systems.
