Final Fantasy XV Scalpers to Face Severe Reaction From Square Enix

The Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector’s Edition was put up for sale with the rest of the versions of the game, but this one came in a limited quantity – only 30,000 were made. As a result, some of the Final Fantasy XV scalpers have started buying in bulk and put them up on eBay for insane prices.

Just to give you an idea, some of the resellers are asking for prices like $674 and even $900 for the collector’s edition!

Final Fantasy XV Scalpers to be Dealt with Severely

Hajime Tabata, the game director at Square Enix, has responded to the issue and clearly stated that while they will try to ship more of the Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector’s Edition, the Final Fantasy XV scalpers are going to be dealt with harshly:

I heard that the preorders swarmed in for the ULTIMATE COLLECTORS EDITION, and as a result, a lot of people couldn’t place their orders. I’m really sorry about that and we’re currently investigating if there are ways we can somehow increase production. I will keep you updated when there’s any progress!

As well, the people placing abnormal orders that suggest possible purchases for the purpose of reselling, will be told that they will be dealt with severely in conformity with the agreement. We ask for your continued support of FFXV!
