While the new PlayStation 5 Help section won't be of much use in this case, here are a collection of handy PS5 bot scripts, Web scrapers and inventory hunters if you're trying to snatch a PlayStation 5 from PS5 scalpers to put under the tree (or Festivus Pole) this year in time for the holidays! šŸŽ„šŸŽ :santa:

How to Snatch a PlayStation 5 from PS5 Scalpers for the Holidays.jpg


Finally an even playing field, eh? Though I'm kind of worried about delivery drivers stealing the systems now, so I might wait until they're in stores.
Locally I've seen a few PS5's being resold new for between $550-850 each, however, the majority of them are still in the astronomical $1000-1100+ range on Craigslist, Facebook, etc.

If everyone ever gets a second stimulus check I imagine those prices would soar even higher... all for a console to play video games. o_O
Best thing is just to never ever give resellers a market, so they'll just keep stuck with them... As soon as they're willing to resell at a lesser value than retail, maybe I'll reconsider
