The official PlayStation Store released a limited number of the God of War Ragnarok Collector’s and Jotnar Editions on their store, only for them to sell out in short order.

As per the official Twitter, a small number of the high-in-demand special edition went on the virtual shelves at 10am UK time, with the Jotnar Edition already selling out 15 minutes later followed by the Collector’s Edition by 10:40am.

Both special editions of the game have proven very popular – with the first run of the Jotnar and Collector’s Editions selling out almost as quickly soon after they were first announced.

However, at the time of writing you can still pick up the Limited Edition God of War Ragnarok DualSense controller from the store.

For now, those wanting to pick up the limited edition should keep an eye on PlayStation’s social media channels, in case any more go on sale in the future. Or they could try their luck on sites like eBay, although they may require fairly deep pockets.

God of War Ragnarok Jotnar Edition

This special edition of the game was announced earlier this year, and quickly sold out within the first day. Now, following almost universally glowing reviews (including our own here), scalpers are selling these copies on ebay for around twice the price.

A quick browse on eBay shows listings of the Jotnar Edition – which had an RRP of £229.99 – is currently asking for an average of £399.99 – with some listings going up to £450.

Of course, sadly this has been something of a regular occurrence these days with in-demand games. But those who managed to get their pre-orders in early for the limited edition version stand to get some exciting treats on their doorstep next week.
