eBay Countering Scalpers By Removing SNES Mini Listings

While Amazon UK have run out of SNES Mini consoles, eBay has plenty of systems and being sold at a ridiculous high price. Just like the NES Mini, the SNES Mini is currently the target of scalpers. When asked by Eurogamer, eBay has claimed that they’re trying to tackle the problem. According to a spokesperson, the auctioning website removes listings of any item that can’t be delivered within the next 30 days. As the SNES Mini doesn’t release until September, they are slowly removing any being offered. However, this is obviously only a short term solution. Thoughts ?
“We will remove listings for pre-release items and accessories if the release date of the item is more than 30 days away”
