Securing a PlayStation 5 was incredibly difficult this year for a million reasons, which makes the shady eBay reseller market even more disappointing than ever.

Hey everyone sorry my video output looks like it was filmed on a Game Boy Camera during this segment. I have fiber internet and I guess it just decided to be crappy that day! Either way, thank you for watching our video and please tell your friends not to spend $2000 on a PS5! Love, Brian + IGN

@KK Daze They make most of thier money from people buying the games to so you would think it would be in thier best interest.

@KK Daze They actually lose money. All of those scalped consoles result in a massive loss of revenue in unsold games and services that actual gamers would have been purchasing on that console. Scalpers ruin everything. Even for the people who make the products they scalp.

Retailers can fight this all they have to do is sell the item like the 1930s in store only

Imagine giving scalpers the finger and NOT buying a PS5 for 2 grand...... Sony will eventually Re-Stock shelves, Then those f#&kers are stuck with thousands of dollars in hardware that they can't sell. Win/Win

Bro if you are in a bad spot financially you shouldn’t be buying a new system lol, don’t worry about us reselling them.

How does one have the money to buy a bunch of PS5s if they’re broke and need the money?
willmek Napja
The solution is simple stop buying from scalpers. Buy only from reputable stores. If people quit supporting this it wouldn’t be a problem. This is exactly why I’ll never buy from a scalper. Have patience you don’t need to be the first person on your block with a ps5.

Let's reserve some of that rage for the retailers too. They could slow down the scalping by using verification software (like Captcha) to stop or even stop the bots, but they won't do it. Why? A sale is a sale. Scalpers are just another customer to them because all they care about are the sales numbers.
Me and my friends were talking about this, just wait for more systems to be released, let the scalpers deal with all those systems thinking they were gonna make money but end up getting stuck with 5+ systems 🤣🤣🤣

Im in no hurry to get the ps5 console. The ones who are to blame for this are sony and Amazon and all the other dealers for not having better system security to detect bots and people trying to cheat the system. Again im no hurry to get a ps5 mostly because im Dilling to wait until the infrastrucure gets better. It lacks monitor compatability etc.

People with their PS4 activated as their primary console should get first priority to pre order directly from their ps4. If they can sell game pre-orders then their can sell their consoles through it too. Solves the scalper problem and also promotes serious enthusiasts and gamers. I'm sure there will be stock left for people who want to get into PlayStations. Stock should also be limited to one per customer. Sony should do something for the next wave of stock.

The way I see it, those extra $600-1000 you're thinking of spending, you can buy a lot of games and accessories with that. Just wait to get one at regular price 👍

I think both Sony and Microsoft should do something in the future to prevent this since any systems that are bought by scalpers is going to eat into their revenue since those systems will never make it to the hands of consumers who are the ones that ultimately buy video games.

And then some of these scalpers are getting robbed by posting pics on Twitter of how much they owned are you suprised you kind should have figured that was going to happen

I’m Shocked Sony hasn’t made a statement regarding this issue seriously youd think a company that is so rich to make a moral statement and they don’t even acknowledge it and scalpers should all be pushed in a hole full of zombies and get ripped apart

The best way to get these scalpers back is to not buy it for that price. Just wait it out and be patient. More will be available in time.

I see people selling just the ps5 boxes for thousands. Only they put it in small print so people might accidentally buy it thinking it’s a console. It’s so damn shady.

What is Sony doing to stop this! Why is Ebay allowing scalpers to take advantage of people? They are just as responsible for allowing this or not having a system to prevent this.

No offense, but you're an absolute moron if you buy a PS5 for a couple thousands from eBay. Just sit down, have a drink and wait. Be patient.

Think you should tell the viewers also that if they buy from scalpers there is a chance that if it’s faulty then they may not get money back or also warranty issues they will have not having a proper receipt of purchase from an official dealer.

scalpers wouldnt have a business....if people didnt buy from them. customers fault for worshipping plastic. and as a content creator...you are the media. you have the power of influence. come together with your fellow creators and organize a boycott of these companies and scalpers until everybody folds. think it doesnt work? Rosa Parks and MLK would disagree. they did it with no internet. the power of the purse is like forward, down, diagonal and strong fierce. shoryuken

You know what people should do. Go onto eBay, bid on all these scalpers ps5, bid to win on them. and once you won... cancel it! Just to make sure they don’t make a penny and to waste their time. And keep on doing until they give up and sell them at Retail price.

If someone has fallen on hard times due to the pandemic, then how can they afford to buy multiple PS5 units that cost $500 a piece?

In the free-market you are allowed to buy how many items you want. This is much better than the alternative

A possible way to prevent scalping is dont make the console available for purchase in the website, maybe place a “notify me when available” button, then when ps5 stocks come, people who pressed the “notify me button” will receive a private link for purchase which they need to access through their email, i doubt the scalpers can make so many email accounts, open them individually, click on the private purchase link sent by the retailer and purchase a ps5, also, one private link must only be limited to 1 ps5 purchase.

I find it funny that the scalpers always want to meet at a police station because they are scared of getting robbed, yet they are robbing others. 😆 🤣 And no I'm not hating. My fiancee was able to secure a PS5 for her son and a XBOX for me when they were first released.

Only buy from authorized retailers. Let the Scalpers keep the consoles, even if they sell below the retail price.
