Sony has sold nearly 8 million PlayStation 5 consoles already, and re-sellers account for hundreds of thousands of those sales.
Interesting seeing the trade range values for current consoles on sale. PS5 TRADE RANGE (12 MOS.) $774 - $784
￼ Xbox Series x TRADE RANGE (12 MOS.) $642 - $680 PlayStation 4 Pro TRADE RANGE (12 MOS.) $493 - $607 Xbox Series S TRADE RANGE (12 MOS.) $351 - $355 PlayStation 4 Slim TRADE RANGE (12 MOS.) $334 - $390
￼ Xbox One S TRADE RANGE (12 MOS.) $200 - $300 https://stockx.com/ Surprised at the high demand for the PS4 Pro.
Forgot one: PS5 DE TRADE RANGE (12 MOS.) $702 - $728
I legit sold my 1 of my ps4pro before ps5 launch for $550. Im thinking of selling my other but then the kids wpuld bug to play ps5 and thats a no go
Maaan you cheated that person, freaking $550. Anyways I tried selling my og ps4 to gamestop but I couldnt because it was modded. I'll try somewhere else.
Well alot of people usually wait till the end of a cycle to purchase a console. Like a buddy of mine was on ps3 til late last year and finally picked up a og ps4. I give props to him for lasting that long on ps3.
when my PS5 arrived, I gave my son my black pro to use in place of his slim. The pro is still a viable platform and considering the lengthy amount of time before the PS5 is readily available... it makes sense for people to still want to use it. I have thought of selling my special editions though, since i am converting my game room into a office / guest room. I wont have any place to keep all my special edition consoles. right now it's mostly 360 and XBO/S/X but i have a few special PS4/Pro units I need to rehome.
Demand for the PS5 is insane.
It really is, but some people can't accept that fact.
Fuck the scalpers
I know. Some people can't accept it and will pretend is all because of the scalpers 😂.
I read title and think Damn now I know where my PS5 go 😢
So that’s close to 2% from a site I’ve never even heard of. Then we have to add eBay, Craig’s List, Facebook, Amazon, etc. It’s getting kinda crazy.
Theres not alot on amazon. And 9/10 you see it facebook its probably also listed on ebay craiglists and any other selling site multiple times.
stockX is a very popular reselling site for anyone who knows reselling. Don't underestimate their sale percentages
StockX is bigger for products like shoes because they verify they're real before giving them to the buyer ect, they're quite large and growing.
1% . . . .
"Resellers"?? You mean scalpers? Fuck 'em!! Fuck the scalpers! If you know one, go and take a shit in their mailbox.
In Czech republic even first day preorders arent fulfilled yet. It doesnt even make sense to order PS5 when there are indices, that shortage will prolong to 2022. It is better to wait for slim or that 6nm rumored version.
I wish people would stop spreading the corporate promotion pump. 8 million WorldWIDE sale is not good when your user base exceeds 120+ million ps4s who would benefit from the upgrade compared to the ps4 pro. Its probably a given if a person felt the need to get a ps4 pro that they will upgrade to PS5.... Basically only the elitist, the online tech savvy bot scalpers, and those who are willing to blow double the cash and support in support of the scalpers are getting a PS5. 8 million is under 5% of my country's population. Which means less in Japan, China, Korea, India, and possibly if Europe is combined in population. Now assuming all things fair then that would be great but I have a feeling that Japan is mostly responsible for this supposed worldwide sales. Why the rant.... because this is the worst launch ever and let's not hide it with pr bull. If the world economy also didn't affect Sony's competitors as well and Xbox and Nintendo where pumping out consoles Sony would be in trouble because instead of scalpers people would just defect to another corporate brand that filled the void that is pretty much has Lack of new Consoles
Don’t worry bro. You’re gonna get one soon. A couple gens ago the Wii was hard to get for like 2.5 years. Once in a while some were available. That was basically a GameCube console too, but with motion controls. It’s only been 6 months for the ps5, let things settle a bit.
