The ongoing scam with scalpers and their overpowered bots snatching away PlayStation 5 consoles from the general public continues. These miscreants then resell the units at an exorbitant price. Besting these bots is the only way to get your hands on the next-gen PlayStation device. The best way to do it is by jumping right into the queue with your details, already inserted, and pressing the buy button, as soon as it gets restocked.
