It was predictable that the scalpers could target the DualSense of Hogwarts Legacy, but honestly we hope we were wrong at least this time.
The PlayStation 5 controller, which you can find on Amazon in various colors, has often been declined in various special versions for the most important titles.
Like the one of God of War Ragnarok, which celebrated the launch of the new adventure of Kratos and Atreus that arrived on PS5.
And the magical DualSense of Hogwarts Legacy that it is already not possible to buy from Italy, and now even from abroad it is more complicated.
As PlayStation Lifestyle reports, scalpers are already infesting the web with these special DualSenses at a high price.
While the controller obviously went soldout in no time, the web is already filled with advertisements carrying the special Hogwarts Legacy controller at various prices.
In some cases it is sold for almost double its original price, such as the listings you can see on eBay that reach even €150.
The recommended price for the controller is $79.99, but it now seems practically impossible to buy it at this price… shipping excluded.
Furthermore, users who have tried to buy it regularly in the last few hours, through official channels, report that they have been victims of the classic click day effect, i.e. the lack of product before the end of the purchase process.
On the other hand, the touts now have much more free time since the PlayStation 5 is finally beginning to be purchasable in total freedom.
PlayStation Europe has in fact communicated that «from this year it should be easier to find a PS5»: players are warned.
With the result that PlayStation 5 is now running very well. In fact, sales in 2022 were very high and increased by 98% on an annual basis.
