Pokemon Go, it quickly became a massive phenomenon when it launched as gamers can’t get enough of hunting for new Pokemon around their general location. However, this widespread excitement and love of the classic era of Pokemon have cost gamers well north of a $100. Turns out if you want the Pokemon Go Plus accessory when it launches later this month, you’ll be forced to spend more than the retail price of $35.
When Pokemon Go was first announced it wasn’t long before the development team revealed an accessory known as the Pokemon Go Plus. Essentially, this is a wristband that connected to the smartphone app via Bluetooth. From there, it would vibrate and display an led when anything of importance should pop up during your travels. This could be PokeStop’s to even Pokemon in the immediate area.
Originally, this device would set gamers back by about $35 through preorders from retail shops such as GameStop. However, it wasn’t very long before the preorders for these devices quickly sold out leaving more than a few unhappy gamers.
There’s no telling when the supply will be back in stock. It could be close to the July 31, 2016, release date of these wristbands, but at this point the word on the next production shipment is unknown. Although, if you’re willing to spend an extra hundred dollars or so, you might be able to get one as soon as possible.
eBay has been flooded with listings of these preorder devices, but they will cost you at the very least $100. We’ve seen listings go past $400 for a set of two of these $35 wristbands. If you can’t wait then you can always go with the incredible high-priced up charge although the next shipment very well could be right around the corner so it’s still a gamble.
