British retailer Argos is the latest victim of the scalping group.
Argos, one of the UK’s largest retailers, brings a new PS5 Yesterday’s stock fell sharply. The available inventory is consumed shortly after being put into use, but this is not for usual reasons.
According to IGN, the main problem is that the scalpers successfully entered the Argos system and tied up many units before the batch even started selling.
The source told the website that the scalpers managed to obtain them the day before the landing began. A group of people who had been proud of buying multiple PS5s in the past discovered a loophole in the Argos system, which actually allowed its members to legally buy game consoles before the links on the website took effect.
According to reports, some people even received their game consoles through the store’s paid service. Although Argos said it filled the loopholes, it did not say how much it sold through these links before the stock went public.
Outside the scalper market, in the face of increased demand from people trying to buy PS5 after stocks are actually on the market, Argos’ system seems to be underperforming. According to reports, the Argos application shows the PS5 inventory, but it seems to drop randomly in different parts of the UK.
Last week, British retailer GAME encountered a similar problem. The PS5 peeling machine had a similar problem. Earlier, a peeling team claimed that it could catch 2,000 peeling machines a day. Later, GAME responded that their orders would not be verified. .
