Evidently, the first shipment of the physical version of the game has sold out quicker than projected in some areas and scalpers have taken to eBay with high prices for the game, some asking for upwards of $60.00 for a game that’s asking MSRP is $39.99.

Tyrone Rodriquez has stated on his Twitter, “please DON’T pay more than MSRP for Afterbirth+ on  Nintendo Switch. While the first run is limited, it’s still available”. The founder continues with, “I don’t want you to pay more than you have to.”


The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ was originally released in the beginning of this year as a rather large expansion to the base game. With a new character, 2 new transformations, 67 new items, 27 new trinkets, 4 new bosses, and more, the game offer players returning to the series a lot to return to.

The developer details the gameplay:

The Binding of Isaac is a randomly generated action RPG shooter with heavy Rogue-like elements.
