At the time of writing, the God of the war Ragnarok the collectors’ editions were released just a few hours ago and already the scalpers are out in force, putting their purchases back on sale at ridiculous prices.
As you surely know, it was finally announced that God of War Ragnarök will be released on November 9 and starting this morning, fans were able to pre-order the game including both the Jotnar Edition and the Collector’s Edition. Naturally, they are already sold for three times their retail value. Sigh.
Take a look at what’s included in the God of War Ragnarökthe special editions below.
Around the world, the Jotnar edition is believed to have sold out in just minutes as fans clamored to get their hands on a 16-inch replica of Mjölnir. In Australia, the Jotnar edition sold for $400 (AUD) and, as reported press Startthere were copies listed on eBay for $1,500 just minutes after pre-orders went live.
Here in the UK, the Jotnar Edition retailed for £230 and sold out in just 15 minutes. In fact, PlayStation UK tweeted about live pre-orders at the GAME retailer, with a link to the site when the two special editions were already sold out. A quick search of the UK’s eBay site shows plenty of Jotnar editions listed for over £550.
What’s even more shocking is that it looks like at least six UK scalpers have already succeeded in their mission, as there are Jotnar editions listed in eBay’s sold section for between £390 and £600. .
If you managed to get your hands on a copy (and one that you fully intend to keep to yourself, I might add), consider yourself lucky. I’m still a little baffled that an edition of this quality doesn’t include a physical copy of the game, but does include a Steelbook to store said non-existent disc. Nothing justifies it.
