With Uncharted 4 little more than a week from launch desperate punters have flocked to online bidding sites, hoping to secure an early copy of the game. We reported earlier this that some pre-orders have managed to escape into the wild. Whether stolen in a violent attack or shipped early by various retailers, they’re out there. Naturally, people have been looking to make a quick buck from all the commotion.
With moments of the story breaking, dozens of copies appeared on eBay, Gumtree, DePop, and various other listing sites. Instead of gradually sloping off, prices have sky-rocketed over the past 48 hours.
Our initial search found copies going for £75 and upwards. Since then, it has almost tripled. Currently, the only eBay listing has Uncharted 4 listed for a whopping £200.
While it may seem crazy, eBay’s archives show that fans have been forking out close to that amount so far, the most expensive being £190.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (officially) launches on May 10th.
