We are not going to say that speculation and scalping are new aspects in the industry. Of course they are not, since there are many similar cases in the retro scene, and that is without mentioning what happened with Xbox Series X and, above all, PS5. But attention to the case of Hogwarts Legacy.
All over the world there is an extreme fever for the Harry Potter game. It is already number 1 in the UK, and accumulates lots of records on portals like Steam or Twitch.
Last week we introduced you to the Dualsense de Hogwarts Legacya beautiful PS5 controller characterized with the iconic castle and golden motifs on the predominant black color.
Hogwarts Legacy – Launch Trailer
There is no doubt that it is a beautiful controller, although in Spain we will be left with the desire… since this Dualsense is exclusive to PlayStation Direct, for the United Kingdom and the United States.
In just a minute, this controller was completely sold out, even going so far as to knock down Sony services on the morning of Friday, February 10. But the worst has come this weekend.
Hogwarts Legacy Dualsense for 226 euros
At this time it is already impossible to get the PS5 controller on PlayStation Direct, unless you give in to speculation and exorbitant reselling. Yeah, You can already find this beautiful Dualsense in buying and selling portals like eBay.
Once again, groups of speculators take advantage of the wishes of the people, selling exclusive products like this at prohibitive prices.
To give you an idea, currently this Hogwarts Legacy Dualsense it costs almost the same as Dualsense Edge, the PS5 Pro controller that was launched a few weeks ago for 239.99 euros on the market.
If we take a look at the eBay searches, we will see that the price of this Dualsense remote exceeds 140 euros in all cases. That is, more than double what a PS5 controller costs.
But the problem lies in other “offers”, which far exceed that amount and are dangerously close to 230 euros.
for now, the highest sale price is 226 euros. Of course, all these announcements were published from last Friday, when PlayStation Direct announced that the controller was already sold out in less than 1 minute.
