As it is one of the most anticipated video games in recent memory, the hype surrounding Starfield has been monumental. So it’s unsurprising really to see that scalpers are trying to cash in on that fanfare.

Scalping has been a bane to the video game industry for some time now—a fact that was put on display during the current-gen console launch, especially with PS5. Now, Starfield fans are feeling the pain as scalpers have been grabbing up the Starfield Collector’s Edition.

Several Redditors have pointed out that this practice violates Ebay’s terms of service, though that has rarely stopped scalpers in the past.
