  • Console makers and retailers need to step their game up with purchase security, this is getting ridiculous.

    • THE PUBLISHERS ARE THE SCALPERS. Mark my words, The "Publishers" are in fact behind the Scalpers in large, not saying there arent INDEPENDENT Scalpers. But by in large, The Publishers are DIRECTLY BEHIND THE SCALPING, ABSOLUTLEY., AND NO DOUBT.

    • @p g but scalpers can't really deny anyone a PS5. Just delay them.

    • For anyone still looking for PS5. Just google "nowinstock" and set up an alarm. It took me about a month (although I missed 2 alarms so it could have been less) to got one from Walmart for the normal price. Just be patient and DO NOT buy from scalpers.

  • Hmm.. If I had some crazy money to spare, I would buy hundreds of consoles with one of these bots. I would resell them at MSRP but only one per day and require people who want to purchase them to hand draw me an original meme related to the product they want. Join a discord call and have a quick chat about said meme.

  • If people would stop buying from these people and write down their names so when they reduce to normal pricing they make a point not to give in and make them lose money. Having a console is not that important, we will eventually not ever see an msrp if we keep giving in to this nonsense.

  • So for a short time I brielfy poked my head into the underground hack market. how it stands, it'd be hard to actually stop these guys. Even with efficient security these guys can make it look like they're buying from different pcs around the world on different accounts to different adresses. How do you stop something like that?.

  • Scalpers are just like Twitch Thots... They do something that works because people allow it... So technically it's people who take getting a freaking console so serious they are willing to pay... So.... Sucks to suck... don't buy it... wouldn't happen...

  • As long as they can't keep anything in stock. This will continue to be the case. I mean getting anything online will be impossible. Most retailers aren't even trying to. I'm almost at the point of just saying to hell with it. What's an extra couple hundred bucks. I'm not going to freaking wait till June here.

  • I remeber when the ps4 launched. I pre-ordered months ahead of time at gamestop. Paid in advanced and was in line at midnight and out the door with a ps4 on day1 within 20 mins. Ps5 launch they didn't even offer this. Why? Why not have a first come first serve queue. You pay up front for 1 console and when stock comes in you get it or pick it up.

  • There are 2 problem groups. (1) It is the BUYERS not the SELLERS that are the first problem. If people don't buy from scalpers guess what scalping would stop. (2) The companies could have enough consoles for everyone who wishes to purchase they can even delay to make sure the reason they don't is because they want this hype. Again you want to stop scalping have corporations wait to release until they have enough units. Those are the 2 groups RESPONSIBLE for scalping.

Do the research, the majority of these scalpers are a handful of several groups. Several groups that have ties to Sony and MS. These consoles are going for hundreds to more than TWICE the retail price. These scalping GUILDS are making a killing, while Sony and MS are getting their manufacturing costs recovered and are making a profit. YOU ARE ALL DAFT IF YOU THINK THIS SHADY SHIT IS NOT COMMON PRACTICE OF ALL BUSINESS!

  • It's clear beyond a reasonable doubt that there are industry insiders profiteering from the scalping situation. "In-house coders..." my arse. They have people on the inside leaking the info for a payout and until the laws change, there's nothing that can be done except wait out the craze, or demand that retailers move more of their stock into physical brick-and-mortar locations with full ID verification. It's the only way to get past this insanity.

  • What measures do scalpers take on the shipping end? Even if all the orders are coming from different IP addresses it seems like it would be trivial for Game to infer botted orders when you have 10 orders shipping to the same location. Some even look like they are using the same email address. Do they have some complex network of hacked emails and shipping proxies?

But it's not about having a PS5 it's about keeping up with the Joneses, buying for the trendiness. Scalpers only exist because the demand is there if we all collectively waited then this wouldn't happen.
