Scalpers sell God of War Ragnarok Jotnar Edition for more than double the retail price

This is bad news for gamers hoping to get their hands on the God of War Ragnarok Jotnar Edition, as resellers are already selling it for more than double its retail price after pre-orders quickly sold out in the UK.

The Jotnar Edition went on sale in the UK this morning via retailer Game, and according to Reddit user u/relozation, copies completely sold out within a minute. The user points out in his post that less than half an hour later, copies of God of War Jotnar Edition had appeared on eBay at more than double the retail price.

In the UK, the Jotnar Edition of God of War is priced at £229.99, but on eBay copies sell for around £550, with the highest selling price being £600. Game shows that they are completely out of stock, currently the only way for God of War fans to get the Jotnar Edition at Sony’s asking price is to visit PlayStation Direct, which is not offering pre-order yet.

A similar situation developed with Australian pre-orders with resellers who listed the Jotnar edition at over AUD$1500 on Ebay. Players in the US may well miss out on the Jotnar Edition as well when pre-orders go live. This is not the first time gamers have been targeted by resellers who have focused their efforts primarily on high-demand consoles.

Last year, an official petition was started and sent to the UK government to introduce laws that would prevent console scalping. It’s a worrying development if individual games are now under attack.

The Jotnar Edition will include various in-game cosmetics, as well as a 7-inch vinyl record featuring music by series composer Bear McCreary. There’s also a life-size model of Mjolnir, a steel display case, and various other giveaways. A physical copy of the game will not be included with the Jotnar Edition; instead, players will use a coupon to claim a digital copy.

It’s been a tumultuous few months for God of War Ragnarok after the game’s developers had to speak out against the bullying they’ve been subjected to from fans. God of War Ragnarok will be released on November 9 on PS4 and PS5.
