Inside Gaming published this video item, entitled “PS5 scalping has gotten out of control” – below is their description.
A PS5 scalper has recently come out and said they obtained nearly 3,500 PS5’s at launch using bots.
Actually, it wasn’t just one scalper but an organization of scalpers that operate as a group to buy up limited quantities of things like PS5’s and Xbox’s or shoes.
Assuming there are at least a couple other groups like this out there in the world it’s pretty easy to see why it’s been so hard to pickup a new PlayStation or Xbox.
In other news this week Sony is likely working on a new Game Pass like service, ex-Dragon Age director Mike Laidlaw is starting a new studio, there’s been a rise in controller use on steam, and a rare copy of Super Mario Bros.
3 is now the most expensive video game money can buy. Of course we have also got next week’s lineup of new releases and this week’s 5-second review tackles Yakuza: Like a Dragon.Inside Gaming YouTube Channel

The PlayStation 5 (PS5) is an upcoming home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Announced in 2019 as the successor to the PlayStation 4, it is scheduled to launch on November 12, 2020 in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and South Korea, and on November 19, 2020 for the rest of the world.
The platform is anticipated to launch in two varieties, as a base PlayStation 5 system incorporating an Ultra HD Blu-ray compatible optical disc drive for retail game support alongside digital distribution via the PlayStation Store, and a lower-cost Digital variant lacking the disc drive while retaining digital download support.
The PlayStation 5 features a customized solid state drive designed for high-speed data streaming to enable significant improvements in graphical performance. The hardware also features a custom AMD GPU capable of ray tracing, support for 4K resolution displays and high framerates, new audio hardware for real-time 3D audio effects, and backward compatibility with most PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR games.
