Forums - Gaming Discussion - I bought a Series X from a scalper today..... Q

also, that guy must have been uninformed because he could have sold that bundle for 900+ easily. 

No.  They're down to the $850 range on Ebay now, for the bundle, $810ish for the console only.  But, you end up paying over $100 in fees there between Ebay and Paypal, then shipping.  In my local market, there were multiple people selling for $750 or less.  At most, this scalper missed out on $50.  On my deal, he made $127.

Enjoy it! My brother in law and soon to be brother in law both bought XSX because they couldn't find a PS5. Both say it's awesome!
I haven't gotten mine yet. No rush, though.

Is that $710 US?



It's your money, do whatever you want with it.

At least you didn't spend a grand or more like I have seen some doing. You got a decent price and an extra controller.



Well if you sell your Series S for even $210 dollars used, you basically end up paying $500 retail for the Series X. I am not going to go into how I don't agree with your decision to buy from a scalper, whats done is done. But don't stoop to their level...

If you don't want to keep it, sell the console itself for $210 as used to someone that really wants it (not another scalper). This will allow you to have only paid retail for your Series X, but help someone out who wants a Series S and can't have one because of the scalper and supply problems. This would be fair in my eyes...

In any case, enjoy your Series X. I am loving mine, and if Cyberpunk is your aim I would go with quality mode. It seems like the most polished console mode out of them all, and has the best visuals on consoles as well.

Well - I hope you got an official receipt otherwise you'll not be able to get a warranty replacement if it breaks.

I did.  



Remember that Dante put greedsters into the 4th circle of hell and thieves/fraudsters into the 8th circle. These are your company, OP.



Congrats, now you're part of the problem.

Hell isn't a real thing though....
