It's been real tough trying to secure a next-gen console in Australia, with PlayStation 5 stock arriving infrequently and often lasting mere minutes before being sold out once again.
However, if you're one of the 48 winners of eBay Australia's upcoming giveaway, you'll not only score the elusive PS5 console, you'll also nab four games, a second DualSense controller, Pulse 3D Wireless Headset and a number of other accessories.
The collective retail value of everything included is AU$1602.55, with the console itself contributing less than half of this generous total. Below is a list of the products and games included in the prize pack, along with their Australian retail price:
- PlayStation 5 console – AU$749.95
- DualSense Wireless Controller – AU$109.95
- Pulse 3D Wireless Headset – AU$149.95
- DualSense Charging Station – AU$49.95
- HD Camera – AU$99.95
- Media Remote – AU$49.95
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – AU$94.95
- FIFA 22 – AU$99.95
- Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart – AU$109.95
- Far Cry 6 – AU$88
