Xbox: Scalpers have a new goal

It’s already extreme with the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X: Since there are not enough consoles on the market at the moment, scalpers often buy up as many copies as possible with the help of programs in order to then use them to sell as profitably as possible.

They also do not shy away from the “Xbox Series X” mini fridge – not only in the USA, but also in Germany you can already find highly overpriced offers on eBay.

We recommend you not to fall for this scam. Microsoft plans to expand regional availability in 2022. The recent offer was just the “first wave” of pre-orders. So it can be assumed that there will be more chances to secure a copy for you.
