THE PLAYSTATION 5 and Xbox Series X are two of the most coveted gadgets out there – if you’re willing to part with yours, you could make a fortune.
Both consoles were in short supply, which inflated their value on the used market.
The Playstation 5 was presented in November 2020 to thunderous applause.
Gizmodo, a popular electronics magazine, praised the PS5’s futuristic design, noting that the console massively outperformed its predecessor in terms of speed and processing power.
A PS5 costs $499 off the shelf – but the shelves are empty.
Supply chain disruptions and high demand have forced businesses to set up backorders or order queues – alternatively, interested buyers can turn to eBay.
PS5 listings on eBay average $674.50 per unit, according to Average Finder.
It’s almost a $200 gain over retail for sellers – but that’s the cost of convenience for the buyer.
Sellers willing to part with their Xbox Series X could take advantage of similar circumstances.
The Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s latest generation more advanced console – the Xbox Series S is smaller, cheaper and less powerful, but will satisfy casual gamers.

The Series X, like the PS5, costs $499.99 out of the box.
It’s an epic console with an imposing big black frame – the Series X looks like the console that would be carried on Darth Vader’s Death Star.
Average Finder says the median price of an Xbox Series X on eBay is $464.86 – but a gloomy outlook for restocking could see the price jump.
Microsoft also offers a monthly payment plan for $34.99 a month for 24 months – this works out to almost $840 but it comes with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Again, the seller wins — while the average eBay price is currently below retail, there are numerous successful Xbox Series X sales that cost upwards of $600.
More people are taking an interest in gaming after being confined to their homes during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has kept gaming device demand high.
For gamers who are having enough fun with the consoles or looking to make a quick buck, this could be the time to sell.
