"AVOID THE PS5 SCALPERS!
Unfortunately, one of the main reasons for the shortage of PS5 consoles is due to scalpers. These opportunistic people have been using bots to scan retailers for PS5 stock when it becomes available and buy as many of the consoles as they can in one go. 

Once they have the highly-desirable console, they will then sell them for extortionate prices, often for thousands of dollars. Business Insider reported one reseller managed to get hold of 200 PS5 consoles and managed to sell them for more than $40,000. " Quote from https://www.tomsguide.com/news/ps5-restock-update-june-5-2021

The playstation 5 released on Nov 12,2020, and  demand for Sony's latest Gen console has been increasingly high ever since. The worldwide semi conductor shortage is the primary catalyst for this perfect storm of consoles being unavailable. 

I propose that major retailers could easily allow customers to form a virtual line and when said retailers get a ps5 restock, those customers could then purchase their console at MSRP,thus creating a solution where all parties involved are satisfied with the exchange. A win-win if you will. Otherwise scalpers will keep winning. I hope you will join us in this endeavor, and your support is appreciated beyond what words can describe. With how the pandemic has kept so many people in their homes much more than they would usually be, in-home entertainment has taken a front seat to various other forms of entertainment many of us would normally endulge in. The ps5 scalpers have taken advantage of their crooked operation for far too long. Again, your support is appreciated so very greatly, and if it isn't any trouble, kindly share this with like minded people. Together, let's put a stop to these scalpers taking advantage of people during these troubling times. Thank you for reading. Please share
