What You Need to Know:
- So we all know that PSVR was heavily anticipated before it came out. We are now in the age of Virtual Reality. While it may still be fairly new, it is evry clear that we are heading in that direction.
- A PSVR set sells for about 50,000 yen or about 476 USD. However, many a Japanese fan are now turning to popular alternative to ebay in Japan, Yahoo Acutions, to make a quick buck. How quick? Well, the sets are being sold for about 72000-75000 yen (685 - 714 USD) or about 40-50% profit. Why? Do they buy it and hate it so much that they want to dump it immediately? What is even more strange is that this is a popular way to get your hands on a copy of one. Other online stores and even Amazon Japan has pockets of people reselling the systems for a higher price plus shipping.
- This, in a strange turn of events, has angered many gamers in Japan leading them to lash out, as you can read below, against both the reseller and the buyer. We have one question though. Why? Why pay almost 1.5 times the price plus shipping for the same thing that amazon can put, on your doorstep or in your mailbox, same day?
Reactions Around the Web
I think people wanted one so bad that they rushed and bought it. But why?
I cannot find anyone even selling it at a reasonable price.
The only people buying it at these ridiculous prices, are idiots.
This is literally now a festival of reselling. Clothes I get but really? PSVR systems?
I wonder if it has to do with the camera?
Who knows.... but they are all idiots for doing that.
