There was a desire for new generation consoles and it was noticed that it could not be otherwise even in the second-hand market. The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 have already been on sale for a few weeks now, but the reality is that it’s currently impossible to get a unit of one of them in almost every region of the world.
Through the Milanuncios portal, we learned about the used buying and selling trend of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, which are currently two of the most sought after products by users.

The strong demand as well as the shortage in stores make its price rise to 1,500 dollars in the case of the Sony console and to 1,000 in that of Microsoft. For its part, the new Microsoft consoles arrived in Spanish stores just 9 days earlier, on November 10, and the market is also experiencing a shortage of units. In this case, demand for Xbox Series X increased by 529% the week it went on sale compared to the previous seven days and reached a maximum price of $ 1,000, with an average price of $ 769.9.
This has led many users to head to the second-hand market to grab one of these precious consoles. Such is the expectation that, according to data from Milanuncios, searches for this game console the week of launch increased by more than 600% compared to the previous 7 days.
Regarding its value, each device has an average price on the second-hand market of 868 dollars, which is 73.6% more than its market sale value. In fact, Sony’s latest console hit a maximum price of 1,500 dollars on the platform.
Microsoft has already announced that it plans to replenish inventory in the near future, but there are still months before the production rate stabilizes.
