PlayStation 4 Outsells Xbox One... On eBay!

We already know the PlayStation 4 is outselling the Xbox One in all retail channels, but it's also outselling the rival console in one other area: eBay.

According to market research firm Terapeak, when comparing each console's launch week sales to each other on eBay, the PlayStation 4 came out on top, selling $12,554,461 on eBay compared to the Xbox One's $7,898,23. That's roughly 31,000 PlayStation 4 consoles sold on eBay during launch week alone!

eBay confirmed that during the launch weekend, November 15th - 17th, over 10,000 PS4s were sold but would not confirm any other numbers.

What was the average price of each PS4 sold?

According to Terapeak, PS4s averaged %589 per system sold on the auction website. That's a $189 profit, not accounting for eBay and PayPal fees! Even after accounting for fees, that's an over $100 profit for each system sold.

This may explain why some of you have yet to find a PlayStation 4. PS4 Experts readers, how do you feel about individual buying the PS4 just to resell on eBay? Let us know in the comments!
