Interesting take and makes sense. If the scalpers are selling them sealed then they just become Sony's problem if the break further down the line. Guessing the contract is between the supplier and the original customer at the point of sale? Although most suppliers will just try and send you to Sony anyway and try and distance themselves from any sense of responsibility or obligation. 

 

 

That's an interesting thought. If you bought one from a scalper, for say £700 or £800... didn't get the receipt from the original shop... and it broke... who are you going to return it to?  The scalper is long gone, and surely Sony will want to see them receipts?

 

I appreciate every PS5 has been on sale for less than a year, so every PS5 in existence is liable for manufacturer's warranty, but it's a problem someone is going to face eventually.

Oh great... Now we have to piss about with people having a 'joke' saying they are available on whatever website.

Currys have none. I dont think they had any to begin with and seems like an error as i got in instantly. Maybe later they will add some?

 

"Manoj: Yes, currently we do no have any stock."

They never had any. This has happened with Currys 4 days in a row supposedly. Stock gets triggered but nothing is there.

Yeah, it's a bit conspiracy but the last hour tells you that putting stock out when nice well behaved bots who buy bundles, don't return goods and won't crash the website has got to be really tempting for them.

 

Especially as Argos will be selling a fuck load of things that aren't PS5s right now and have better profit margins.

Yeah I'm not actually blaming them, EXCEPT when they say they try to stop bots.

 

If you're putting out stock, unannounced, on random days at 3am, you are not trying to do that.

This morning I was on game moments before the bots started pinging. Then Game crapped the bed, 500 errors, intermittent queues, kept logging me out, couldn't view basket, too many items in basket etc. 

 

As a hail Mary I cleared my browser cache, refreshed the page. It was in the basket and processed!!! 

 

Now to wait for the order to be cancelled for some reason

I’m somehow still in the Game queue with more than an hour to go. 
 

It hasn’t changed since 9.46 or whenever.


Mine started counting down again about 20 minutes ago, seems like the line is moving, people are reporting actually being able to buy one this time!

I like that there's a hyperlink which seems like it must link to the Wikipedia for patience.

*Monkeyspill was moved to the back of the queue.

Dunno but the progress bar jumped back to where it was previously so I don’t think it sent me to the back.

 

”58 minutes” now.
