The fans of the PS5 console have gotten up on their feet against one PS5 scalper group. Since the launch of the PS5, multiple PS5 consoles have been sniped with an aim to resell them for a higher price. Those people that do that are known as scalpers, which usually gain a considerable profit by doing that. Now, combined with the stock shortage and other issues, you could imagine how bitter consumers would get by just realizing this.
Without any shame, a scalping group named CrepChiefNotify has posted on their official Twitter profile the whole profit they’ve managed to gain by just reselling the consoles. The scalper group based in UK, managed to gain over 1,000,000 million pounds in profit, with over 2500 units sold. It’s amusing to realize how they managed to stockpile a high number of PS5 consoles. However, Fans haven’t missed their opportunity to respond and show their frustration.
Congratulations to our members 🎉

This story is likely to continue in the same fashion. As an insult to injury, Sony’s president Jim Ryan has revealed that absolutely everything is sold, which makes people think twice about buying their PS5 console “second-hand”. Not only that it’s not coming directly from Sony’s storehouse or official retailers, but the price is a lot higher than the normal MSRP.
