It's a grey area. When you buy something you can do whatever you want with it, which includes selling it for a higher price than the original one.

Nothing illegal about it, it's just scummy.

I mean scalping is scummy, not reselling stuff

Yeah but again it's still just a scummy thing. The article Silent posted isn't going to make this illegal either, it's just gonna make scalpers find another way to scalp stuff they can sell off.

This whole scalping thing wouldn't have been this big of an issue if there wasn't a chip shortage

I mean come on tho if you're gonna resell something for more than its worth then you gotta get over yourself like nothing that you did with it in the time you had it makes it worth any more, if anything its the opposite, like I see nothing okay with that

Thanks to that none of the manufacturers can fill out the amount of demand for the consoles so it's easier for scalpers to take these and successfully sell them

The rarity of the consoles is what makes the price worth it for the people

It's a FOMO thing

People want the new thing even if it's out

So they find a scalper to buy from

It happens with every big release on something

It's just extra bad now thanks to the pandemic and the chip shortage

I mean sure in this case yeah I can see how people would place a higher value on something but I meant in general like if we're not talking about a large scale scarcity situation

Like the act and thought process of going "hmm I'm sure there's some other sucker out there who wants this insert thing here lemme rip him off and make profit in the process" should so be illegal like I can't believe it's not

the vibe im getting and how it come off is that you support the scalpers scalping. it just come off like that. the laws doing this to punish scalpers using bots is good cause it meant we could actually get stuff at a reasonable price not the 1000+ shit cause they'd do it to make it scare and rare on purpose to firetruck over the average customer. legitmate sellers do not scalp at a bullshit pricing nor do they scalp.

My point isn’t that it’s sensible to stop it before it happens, just that it’d make some sense to not let people do such ridiculous shit and get off scot free

Wait how is there anything legitimate about that?
