IPhones with Fortnite sold for thousands of dollars on eBay
It was only a matter of time before we saw the emergence of opportunists who took advantage of Fortnite’s disappearance from the Apple App Store. For example, there have recently been several ads on the eBay auction site offering iPhones with the game installed for more than $ 10,000, and their number is only increasing.
The big, high-profile battle between Epic Games and Apple, following the withdrawal of the game Fortnite from the App Store, has generated a lot of inkling. As in the case of Flappy Bird a few years ago, hundreds of opportunists have taken the opportunity to try to sell their iPhone on which Fortnite is installed at a high price.
Just run a search with the keywords “iPhone Fortnite Installed” to find hundreds of results, which keep multiplying. The most expensive seller right now is offering an iPhone 11 Max Pro for a tidy sum of US $ 18,000, while the auction starts at US $ 12,000.
The battle between Epic Games and Apple is fierce
It is recalled that the Fortnite application was removed from the App Store because it violated the rules of the virtual store. Players could purchase much cheaper V-Bucks directly through the app, rather than going through Apple’s payment system.
Epic Games therefore reacted quickly to the move by choosing to take Apple to court, accusing the company of having a monopoly in the industry.
