Banzai NAMC and fromSoftware will perform a closed network test for Elder, and the lucky fans have already been selected. Those who could not get a code are lucky, since several have finished on eBay. At this time, auctions for PlayStation 5 test codes in North America are at the baseball stadium of only $300! Of course, those who are anxious about the game could simply wait a few more months until Anglo de Elden is the full launch, but where is the fun in that? It s hard to say how much these auctions will end, but we all agree that the number will be quite stupid.
Unfortunately, it is not surprising to see that these test codes are sold by numbers so high. During the last year, the prices of articles related to video games have skyrocketed in the secondary market. The PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles have had an incredible demand, but it has also spread to Pokémon cards, video game memories and much more. Unfortunately, that made it incredibly difficult for true fanatics to get what they want.
Anglo de Elden is easily one of the most anticipated games of 2022, so it is something understandable that anxious players are willing to spend a lot to participate in the network test. However, at the end of the day, it is difficult to exaggerate the bad idea it is. Paying superior prices for this kind of thing will only encourage resellers to start accumulating network test codes, in the same way they have done it for consoles during the last year. While there are auctions for large quantities on eBay at this time, the actual amount of codes for sale is quite small. However, as soon as the resellers realize that this is the next thing in what money can earn, players will compete with the bots to participate in the network tests. That would be bad for fanatics, bad for developers (who need feedback) and bad for industry.
Anglo de Elden is scheduled to launch on February 25, 2022, at PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC. You can check all our previous coverage of the game right here.
