The coveted Hogwarts Legacy Limited Edition Dualsense controller for PS5 is already being scalped for nearly twice its original price, according to current listings on eBay. This goes for both the US and UK versions of the PS5 Dualsense, which were only available through the PlayStation Store and are currently sold out.
Hogwarts Legacy Dualsense sold out almost instantly in PlayStation Store
The MSRP for the controller is only $79.99, but the latest bids for the product (for the pre-orders) on eBay range from about $150 to $170. That’s not including the shipping for many listings.
At any rate, the immediacy of the listings for the US pre-orders of the Dualsense on the site suggests that scalper bots are in part to blame for the item’s lack of stock in the PlayStation Store.
Checking the latest posts about the controller on Twitter, some users were lucky enough to score a pre-order through the PlayStation Store. But a fair number of others say that the item was in their cart but was then told there was an error with the purchase. Or that the controller wasn’t even available to buy in the first place when it went live in the US at 10 pm PT / 1 pm ET.
In similar fashion, the controller pretty much sold out instantly when it was available in the UK, despite the fact that it is limited to one per customer due to high demand. A PlayStation blog post that advertised this special edition DualSense controller was recently scrubbed of any information about it.
Revealed yesterday, the Hogwarts Legacy Limited Edition Dualsense features an image of Hogwarts with a gold swirling motif of Ancient Magic. Sadly, the controller is not available for sale outside of the UK or US, nor is it available through third-party retailers.
