This law makes it illegal to resell goods purchased with robots.
A group of British politicians said that laws should be enacted to stop people from snapping up highly sought-after items, such as PlayStation 5 with Xbox Series X Console.
According to the VGC report, the report stated that six Scottish Nationalist MPs yesterday (Monday, December 14) proposed an “early action” requesting the enactment of a law to stop “the price is much higher than the manufacturer Suggested retail price.” This also makes it illegal to resell goods purchased using robots.
So far, 10 MPS have signed the bill, most of which are from Scotland. There is no indication as to whether there is a need to debate in the House of Commons.
Prior to this, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles were launched in November. CrepChiefNotify, a reselling organization, boasted that it had stolen 3,500 new Sony machines. At launch, the team had landed 2,472 consoles in addition to the “less than 1,000” PS5 pre-orders it received in September.
The organization also tried to buy 1,000 Xbox Series X from retailer Very, but these orders were cancelled by the company.
These machines cost a lot of money in the secondary market. PlayStation 5s has attracted as much as 990 pounds on services such as Ebay, while Xbox Series X prices are as high as 700 pounds. British second-hand retailer CEX also charged £815 for PS5, offering users a price of £650 to sell machines worth £450.
