Should I buy a PS5 on eBay?
eBay is a popular destination for those desperate to get their hands on a PS5. Unfortunately, since the launch of the PS5 back in 2020, prices of the console on eBay have been extremely high. Those managing to secure (or “scalp”) stock from retailers have been marking up the price to take advantage of the demand.
Buying a PS5 on eBay can still be worth it if you manage to snag a particularly good deal. Some retailers have their own eBay Outlet, which will sometimes be restocked separately from their actual online store. Good deals can also be found by filtering by “Buy It Now” and “Newly Listed.” Sometimes the odd kind person will just be looking to sell the console at cost, or close to.
