While we contuine to check stock for the PlayStation 5, if you have found it hard or almost impossible to buy one of the next-gen consoles, Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 for RRP straight from a retailer you’re not alone. The PlayStation 5 is one of if not the hardest consoles in history to hold of at launch.
You may have noticed that these consoles are in plentiful supply from reseller sites and 3rd party sellers at a higher price.
We do not blame the reseller websites as some sites and sellers have been selling the consoles at a reasonable amount. We have seen many cases where people have managed to use reseller sites or 3rd party sellers to get a fair deal, and be able to get their hands on the consoles.
How is this happening? Some sellers are using bots, or computer programs to buy up multiple consoles with just the intent to sell these consoles on at a high price. The main problem here is that these bots can buy at a much faster rate than any genuine human can, and in some cases skip queues or places order at times where the PlayStation 5 appears out of stock still.
With all this in mind and staying as impartial as possible we wanted to let you know about an ongoing petition. At 100,000 signatures, this petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.
The details of the petition can be found below, feel free to sign the petition to try and make the playing filed a bit fairer.
