Since numerous Fans already none during the pre-order phase PS5 Of course, many were at the various American online shops at midnight on November 12th and tried one Consoles to buy. Although the dealers on a large rush of the Fans they had probably not expected these dimensions. The Walmart site crashed within a very short time and resulted in long loading times during the purchase process of the PS5. But how is it that one of the largest American retailers could not cope with the flood of buyers?
PS5: Bots bought PlayStation 5 inventory – resellers are now selling consoles for double the price
There was a tiny problem with the rush: Many buyers weren’t human, they were Bots, specially designed to skip lines, avoid waiting times and at inhuman speed Consoles to buy. While Fans So they had to fill out their contact details or wait for the shopping cart to finally load Bots already several PS5 consoles bought and the inventory was sold out. This problem already appeared on the Nintendo Switch and sneaker fans can tell a song about it. Because the Bots are particularly often used for rare sneaker drops such as Yeezys.
Reseller buy using the Bots Lots of sneakers, or in our case PlayStation 5 consoles (Buy PS5 *), and then sell them for a much higher price on portals like eBay or even Instagram. So are PS5 consoles currently available on eBay for $ 800 to $ 1000. Buyers would have to pay twice as much as in retail. As many Fans as soon as possible Consoles want to dust off, the business is worth it for some Reseller. Now you might wonder why Walmart and other online retailers aren’t against this Bots Action. Many retailers now even have their own software in order to Bot-Avoid purchases. However, it is Bot-Scene clever and extremely fast, so that such software can easily be bypassed.
PS5: Bots also in German retail? Fans are very concerned
It remains to be seen whether we will go to the German Release the PS5 will have the same problems. For all Fansthat misses out, there is unfortunately no good news either. Because Sony has not yet announced whether and when the PS5– Inventories are replenished. Then you can only wait and drink tea. All the one PlayStation 5 could not only get hold of the Consoles look forward to extremely fast loading times. In addition, Sony has eliminated an extremely annoying time waster so that you can gamble even faster.
