Can we make Really low offers to this people on Ebay?

Does 2600 cents sound ok? I think that's a fair price for what it offers.

Or maybe the kid might be a toddler? When I was 6 years old I didn't know how to read. I also wasn't good at counting money. There's also kids who just want the console now because next month it's their birthday? And omit research . I'm guessing the target is high middle class moms with kids that don't care about money? few other by different means?

So who exactly are we trying to protect here? People who just throw money at their problems? Its thanks to them regular gamers cant get a PS5.

The people retailers and govt should be looking after are people who just want to purchase a console at rrp knowing that if they miss out to another customer it's fair and square, and availability is down to just normal supply constraints, and not watching your purchase disappear out of your trolley because of some bot, my  own personal feelings are I wouldn't piss on scalpers or those buyers that enable them if they were on fire, also stores that do little to implement anti bot measures are also to blame.

Well, I'm having trouble on Ebay for certain game "Panzer Dragoon Saga" , I want it so bad but It's futile, I'm not spending 1k for a single game . And they still have the PS5 at 700+ but in auctions, The buy now peeps won't budge still 1k + and there are people who still don't know how to buy from an auction in ebay . Or purchase anything on amazon with insane prices that amazon never adds an auction like ebay.

Panzer Dragoon Saga is a very rare and sought after game. The people selling it are not jacking up the price. That is what the game goes for. 

Sorry for being a bit of a jerk, but Im tired of people complaining about scalpers. Scalpers wouldnt do it if idiots didnt keep buying useless shit for a large amount of money. Who is the worst? The guy selling a PS5 for 1500 bucks or the guy buying it for 1500 bucks?

Definitely the person buying.  Anyone who spends that much money without doing an ounce of research first deserves to be ripped off. 

I can't legitimately think of a good reason for Nintendo to discontinue the 3D Mario collection. Even if it's to create artificial scarcity and drive the value high, you'd think they would end up selling more in the long run. This game had the potential of being a 10 million seller by the end of the Switch's lifespan.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Yeah it's such a strange move. Are they gonna increase their online subscription fee and include these games for free in the future? But then again they could've just done that straight away, without releasing the collection.
I'm sure there's a reason for it and the people at Nintendo find it valid enough, I'm just curious to know what it is :p

The massive sales of this collection pretty much guarantees a low price forever. There is always going to be a good supply of copies out there.

That is not necessarily true. Pokemon games always sell 10+ Million copies and used copies of certain Pokemon Gens still regularly exceed 50€ when in good condition.

Well, isn't that what Nintendo wanted?
Now a very new Mario game is really valuable so when you buy their next for 60$ it will be a steal right?
But be fast, or maybe you can't get it for that Nintendo generous price for long :D

Seems like a great deal to me. I would easily sell mine for $2600 if morons start paying that much for it. $60 turned into $2600 in a matter of months is a crazy return on investment. Better than paying $60 and selling later for $1.27.

You can blame Nintendo.

Scalpers will exist in a free market that is not regulated. Should it be regulated? I mean then how do you deal with people who collect cards, games, consoles, coins, etc.. It is what it is. At some point prices will balance to demand.
