Nintendo N64 controllers are priced over $120 on eBay

Basically, it’s in the system now. Something that is pretty hard to get hands-on. It’s something that everybody wants, so people buy them up and then sell them at an exorbitant price. Switch Oled was also targeted and now it looks like Nintendo N64 is in the line next. Earlier, most of the players were not happy with the Nintendo N64 controllers price. The controller was considered to be extremely overpriced.

But now, the same players/buyers are ready to pay over $120 for the same wireless Nintendo N64 controllers which retail for just $50. Definitely, it is pretty hard to understand the mentality here. This is exactly why most of the people now have to face the issue of scalping.

In Xbox Series X Mini Fridge the preorders got sold out in just 15 minutes, which is totally insane, to be honest. The Fridge is officially priced at $99.99/£89.99 but now due to scalping; it is already going for more than double on eBay. The listings on eBay are as high as $200. Genuine buyers and players are pretty annoyed with this at this point. Scalping a refrigerator is just insane, like what is literally wrong with people.

Video game consoles or even games are still fine as they give a unique experience and something people really need to enjoy their day or to just get a fresh feeling, but a mini refrigerator is too much. Above all, people are paying that much extra cash for a mini-refrigerator. It’s hard to believe that people are actually paying $300 for a mini-fridge.
