Nope, its within their terms that it can be sold for whatever.

The price is this low due to Microsoft sale until 15th and console in now sold out everywhere in UK and most places in Ireland.

These will easily sell for 400 once the standard ones go back up to 499/399 end of next week.

I have bought two myself, one to use now and one to hold.

I have a sealed Limited Edition of every Xbox One X and PS4 Pro released, planning to keep them for another 15-20 years hopefully and see what they are worth then haha.

Ha, used to have an attic full of old computers (c64, spectrum, amiga etc) and consoles. They're not worth anything. Think about it, people would actually want one. They'd buy one for €50 in a car boot sale just to have fun for a weekend but other than that no one will want to pay any more.

If I remember correctly, an original xbox with every single game released sold in the region of $200.

Now is the time to sell them, while there is demand. Especially limited editions.

They won't appreciate in price. You probably could have bought a Rolex for that money.

Good luck with that investment - in my experience expensive lego sets are a better investment - I'm talking 400-500.

Will see how much value they hold in 15-20 years if I am still alive. I have sealed 500 Million and the 20th Anniversary PS4 consoles aswell. Have seen them go for alot on Ebay.

I am sure that guy has some sort of contact with a retailer or distributor. He should go on ebay to make real money. I have seen them go for 450-500 on there.

He seems to have EU models for Xbox One Hyperspace Special editions as well. Looking at sold ads , he sold about 40-50 animal crossing switches as well.

Big investment = Big profits.

Theres another guy who has sold around 2500 phones new sealed on adverts also.

They could be just taking down and re-listing their ad over and over to keep it on top. Twats do that.

You can but its incredibly restrictive.

The buyers Microsoft account would have to redeem the game on the consoles dashboard. So they would need to add their profile to the Xbox, redeem it and then remove their profile from your console.
