PlayStation's exclusive shoes had a major scalping problem. This just reminds gamers how much scalpers suck!
I hate both scalpers, and the companies who swear "Limited Edition" equally. Scalpers like to argue supply/demand; and because the majority have "deep pockets" can buy and resell at a higher price. Limited Edition instead should be more available through other channels outside just websites; especially for those with limited/no Internet connection.
I'm pretty confident we all have our own reasons to hate them. *cough* NES classic *cough* The one thing to remember is to never feed the scalpers, because it's that rewarding moment when that surplus of what we wanted arrives that makes their prices drop to what it was to begin with that brings a smile to my face. See, not only does it help the ecosystem, but it improves your mood too.
People obviously are new to shoes, this has been going on for years. I recently sold a pair of Air Jordan 3 FTL for $530.
With all do respect here I get the writers point but I don’t think we need to be telling anyone to “hate” anyone else. Too many people getting shot up, too much anger. Maybe say “gamers should reject scalpers”? Or Gamers shouldn’t stand for scalpers.... too much hate going on already and people ar getting violent.
wait... there's gamers who don't hate scalpers!?
If you don't buy into the superfluous cash-ins from video game companies you have no reason to hate them. Not being able to get a pair of overpriced shoes with PlayStation written on them isn't a hardship. All I see are people saying "You prevented me from spending money and stupidly wasting it on something I don't need by making the item even more expensive, you b******D's." If these people weren't gamers themselves it's doubtful that they would have known anything about the limited edition gaming offers, so I'd imagine that not all gamers hate scalpers. You may prefer to be shafted by only one entity rather than two, but either way you're getting shafted.
