eBay sees huge next-gen console sales

Over 10,000 PS4 consoles were sold on eBay last weekend.

A rep from the auction site told GameSpot that between November 15th and 17th over two PS4s were sold every minute and that over 15,000 of Sony’s next-gen machine have been sold since November 1st.

A quick look on the site now shows lots of day one launch stock for the machine – although the scarcity of such hardware on the High Street is leading to some quite elevated prices.

There’s been lots of eBay activity for current-gen (or last-gen?) hardware too, with gamers presumably selling off their current wares in the hope of upgrading.

Over 14,000 used consoles have been sold on the site since November 15th – that’s up ten per cent on the day days immediately beforehand.
