The PS5 is a highly sought after games console which is still difficult for gamers to get their hands on 15 months after it was first released here in the UK, in November 2020.
Why has the PS5 been so hard to purchase?
National World’s gaming expert Alex Nelson has explained why there are PS5 stock issues.
He said: “A technology war is being waged between people making bots to snatch highly desirable items like the PS5 and specialists trying to prevent them.
“These bots, known as scalper bots, continuously monitor websites for products that are limited in stock.
“The moment they become available, the bot has the user’s payment details ready to go, to secure the items within milliseconds, making it near impossible for a human to compete.
“Many are then sold on with the intention of turning a profit via sites such as eBay, costing considerably more than their original price. The practice is not illegal, but while the issue is not new, it is gaining more awareness.
“As long as there is increased demand for the consoles, there is likely to be bots snatching them up.”
Where will have PS5 stock next?
As so many people are trying to get their hands on the games console, social media has constantly been full of rumours of when and where PS5 stock will become available ahead of release.
A dedicated Twitter account @PS5StockAlertUK has been set up for just this purpose and has more than 223,000 followers, so it’s clear to see just how many people are hoping to snap one up.
