If you find the $499 Sony PlayStation 5 expensive as heck, there’s more! And since you are here, we’ll give you a laugh (or nervousness) at the prices we may have found on the net. Way back in November 2020, the market welcomed PlayStation 5 with anticipation and support of gamers and fans. Hence, in a flash, the consoles left the markets and up until the present, no restocking happened.

And this made the birth of this article, as sellers and retailers may have adjusted too much for the spare PS5 on their shelves. We’ll list down the most ridiculous prices Sony PS5 got sold, so stay with us here!

5. $1300 at Game Boss in Cerritos, California

Firstly, we have this report from Reddit that a retail store in California sells the console for more than double of its price. The comment section had a good laugh with this, specifically when a hanging ‘sale’ tag sticks to the Sony PS5.

  • But what makes this more controversial? The people share how the owner of the shop leaves offensive remarks on negative reviews on his shop. A complete a-hole they say, check out the Reddit thread to read more. You should stay away from the shop, folks, let’s not tolerate overpricing here. Unless you’re desperate for the console, hmm… Anyways, no thanks for your $1300 sale!

4. A PC set + PS5 retail price

Okay, if you found the $1300 a crazy price, you may pass out after knowing about this second one. Do you know YouTuber UFD Tech? My mind was blown away as I watched his PS5 review, and knew what he traded for the console.

  • The YouTuber traded a PC set and even paid the retail price of the Sony PS5 to get a hold of the console. If he estimated it right, he paid around $2500 for the latest Sony console.

Ryzen 7 3700X, Aorus X570 ITX, 16GB G.Skill TridentZ Neo 3600MHz, MSI RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio, Cooler Master NR200 Case, and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Cooler. Check out his video here for his review! Well, we can say it’s a good deal…, especially to the person who had his PS5 traded!
