Millions of gamers have been trying for more than a year for PS5, The PS4’s younger sister, the original version of which still dates back to 2013, but which Sony is still betting on again. Because if the latest Sony console crushes its rival made in Microsoft and offers impressive performance and games, The lack of components prevents it from selling as much as it should, Simply because the stocks are not keeping up with the demand.

But there’s a problem that players are well aware of and perhaps even more infuriating: scalpers. These “dealers” take advantage of the hype and general impatience to buy PS5s in large quantities, before reselling them on the net for exorbitant prices. And regularly over 1,000 euros. And if you thought no one would go to such ruins for an ordinary console, think again, these last-generation PlayStations are selling outrageously expensive.

It actually allows you to register to potentially be ready. If you are one of the lucky ones, you will be able to reach a buying session during which you will have to be the fastest. In short, nothing is won.

Let’s quote PlayStation, which, in its FAQs about its platform, to get you off a bit, Indicates that the drawn players will be selected according to “Past activity and demonstrated interest in PlayStation”.
