PS5 No Longer Profitable For Scalpers

This is incredible news for anyone still looking to secure a PS5.

Due to CEX's recent price drop and the market evening out on platforms such as eBay, scalping the next-gen system isn't very profitable anymore, which should open up the market for regular gamers now and make purchasing much easier, especially as stock is released in larger numbers.

CEX will now just give £450 for a boxed PS5, the same price as the console costs to purchase.

eBay still sees the console sell for around £550-600, but this is far lower than the £900 the console was selling for just a few weeks ago.

PS5 UK Stock - Instant Updates recently tweeted that,

"Due to recent drops, its unprofitable to sell a PS5 to CEX! Average prices for a PS5 on eBay have dropped to £550!"
