Scalpers Target God of War Ragnarok's Special Editions

Scalpers have once again given Sony fans a hard time. This time, instead of the PlayStation 5 console, they started stocking up on the special edition of God of War Ragnarok.

Special edition of God of War Ragnarok has become another victim of scalpers. The Jotnar edition was initially available only in Australia at a price of 399.99 Australian dollars. However, buyers are now left with only listings on Australian eBay, where sellers are wishing for up to AUD 1,500 for this edition. The more "gracious" sellers offer the Jotnar Edition for "just" one thousand Australian dollars.

Similar "bargains" can be found on other local versions of eBay. For example, in the United Kingdom offers to purchase God of War Ragnarok: Jotnar Edition start at around 550 pounds, more than double Sony's suggested price (229.99). In contrast, on European PlayStation Direct this edition is still unavailable, even though the pre-order option was supposed to have appeared some time ago.

Details on God of War Ragnarok: Jotnar Edition, which includes, among other things, a replica of hammer Mjolnir, can be found in our previous news. The game will debut on November 9, on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
