PS5: new tactic allows scalpers to buy the console before it becomes available!

European stores have stocked Sony’s new generation console again, but once again the groups of people who hoard consoles to resell them at exorbitant prices have taken the lead again. Scalpers now resort to a new tactic that allows them to access PS5 stock before it is even available to consumers.

The latest news comes from British retailer Argos, who admits that several scalpers managed to order the console the day before it went on sale on the company’s website.

It is almost impossible to buy a PS5 thanks to scalpers

PlayStation 5

Argos announced that it would put some PS5 units on sale yesterday, January 26. However, when consumers tried their luck when buying one they were faced with the usual problems.

From an inaccessible website to several messages announcing that the stock was again unavailable seconds after being put up for sale, everything served to drive suitors crazy.

It seems that scalpers are turning to a Discord server where they can pay to receive links to the PS5 page in various stores in advance. This means that these individuals had access to the stock before the general public could get their hands on it.

Argos indicates that it has finished accessing these links but admits that it has no idea how many consoles were purchased using this method.

Difficult to buy a PS5 also in UK

In UK the console was also available again yesterday, but several problems of this kind have been reported.

The websites froze and the few units available flew in seconds, driving several people to despair and leaving complaints on social media.

It is not known if here the problem also involves scalping using this new tactic but the truth is that the limited stock that is being made available disappears in seconds after being offered for sale.

The problem may also be due to some lack of preparation of the retailers’ computer systems, little able to cope with the tremendous influx generated by the interest in the Sony console.
