  • The trick about the whole playstation thing is/was figuring out a way you could even purchase one in the first place let alone 221. I have no clue what he hacked or what he had to do to get the opportunity to purchase 221 playsations, because there were approximately 221 thousand nerds who would have sucked off someone a year before it's release just to be on the waiting list to purchase 1 of the goddamn things. I have a friend who's been trying to purchase one since well before it was released. Sure he could pay double or triple it's retail, to purchase one now, but he's holding out until he could purchase one at retail cost. I'm guessing all of these shortages are just one big scam, especially in the electronic/computer arena to sell their products for triple retail. Of course they pretend that they have no connection to the vendors that sell it for triple the retail... yeah right!

  • The more things you have & want The more you will pay for them. Once you grow up and have a little more experience in life you will understand that less is more.

  • I bet the same people that bought those PS fives shop at convenience stores. Let’s pay $6.50 for A pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. If they were not so lazy they would go to a supermarket and pay $3.50. May not be the best comparison but I’m just being lazy ha ha Ha

    Chris BlackChris Black19 kun oldin
  • All of the people who bought the PS fives from this fella are Addicted to video games and need the newest and best product that comes out. They are never satisfied. Yes this person did take advantage of those people. He is just a little smarter and ambitious no matter how you look at it. One persons addictions are always exposed by another’s reward.

  • Even if I could’ve afford to buy 10 of them I wasent getting any of them.that kid and many other people have messed up the game. Now we can’t even buy what we want even if we had the money cause this computer wizards get everything before we even click the item to buy

  • Million Dollar Potential in Ruvol I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.” Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.” Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself. The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It is for this very reason that the great Bobby Fischer introduced his so-called “Fischer Random Chess,” where the starting position of the pieces is “randomized” to make the memorization of openings impracticable. Fortunately, it is also for this reason that I invented Ruvol where “every game” has been calculated to be a challenging one to play. HOW IS RUVOL PLAYED? Ruvol is played somewhat like chess. It is played by two players. It uses a board that is rectangular in shape but contains more number of squares than chess. It has equal number of pieces on each side of the board, where each type of pieces moves in distinct ways. However, if the way to win chess is to checkmate the opponent’s king, the way to win Ruvol is to be able to cross a designated line. But there’s one big advantage Ruvol has over chess: The Ruvol pieces don’t have a fixed position at the start of the game. It is the players themselves who dictate the starting position, depending on the strategies they have planned before the game starts, making it impossible for any clever player to memorize the opening moves. A MILLION DOLLAR POTENTIAL IN RUVOL! The people who play chess will be the same people who will play Ruvol. In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. These 800 million players comprise the “Total Potential Buyers” of Ruvol across the globe. At an average profit of just US$3 per set, the “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol then is US$2.4 billion. Assuming only 1% of it will buy each year, the annual global potential sale of Ruvol is US$24M. I AM LOOKING FOR AN INVESTOR! For the reason that I don’t have the resources to publish Ruvol on a global scale, you might be interested to have the exclusive right to manufacture and market Ruvol globally under a “licensing agreement.” Or better yet, just “BUY MY COPYRIGHT” and Ruvol is entirely yours. Email me at: Thanks and God bless! RODOLFO MARTIN VITANGCOL The Ruvol Inventor

  • Everyone is being sold scalped goods every day of our lives. It's hypocritical to disregard scalpers(which also in this context are allowed to exist because of a price fixing scheme that sony and nvidia mastered) but at the same time be okay with paying 50-70% markup for even your FOOD, without batting an EYE. That's capitalism.

  • My son wanted the PS5 & New Xbox so I made him do research & we got 5 of each with NO BOTS just grinding,searching, trial & error. We even had 2 orders cancelled. We flipped 8 system's turned a nice profit & he got both systems free & donted 10% of his profits to charity. I made him understand supply, demand, hard work & giving back. People just giving kids stuff are part of todays problems, teach these kids to grind!

  • He's a scalper. They buy up big thus depleting the market of the already expensive items, making it impossible for people to buy at the real price of the item. This should be criminalised, it's wrong.

  • If this "genius kid" that sold 200 Playstations was my son ..he would be driving on his own time and expense every person he sold the playstation to. If it meant driving all around the country - so be it. He would have to return the made money and APOLOGISE for being GREEDY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. That would be a nice lesson for him and very expensive. My 16 years old son is building a gaming PC as I write this. He was trying to buy a Nvidia 3060 TI video card that came out recently - to no avail. Bots were buying all of them almost. He came to me and asked me to buy one on the Ebay. My answer ??? OVER MY DEAD BODY !!!!! Not even a penny more than the retail cost would go to a psychopath that makes money that way. EVER !!!!! I hope my son will learn a lessons that life presents him now with such a situation. He will learn how to be PATIENT, resourceful, creative and eventually will find what he is looking for - the NORMAL WAY.

  • I get it the kid did a fucked up thing but yet he still managed to make money. Now I don't buy shit unless its from the retail store so I could care less what he did you gotta be dumb and desperate to buy a PS5 knowing you are overpaying and incentivizing people to continue scamming so why not be a grown up and wait until you can buy yours the proper way and if you cannot wait well than I guess you deserve to overpay for being a dumbass.

  • I get your point about hustling and all, but this is a bit different. I was trying to do this exact thing, and guys like this used bots and took them all. I get it, but it gets to the point where kids gotta pay double or triple the price now. The days of camping out in a line all night to get one is no more. I don’t think it’s right..

It's such a corrupt business, when all you care about is making money and not having a healthy relationship with clients. I know this is a short term problem but I wouldn't be applauding this person for his actions.

  • In fairness, 221 playstations at $499 a piece, assuming his final purchase cost was $520 as something pretty realistic after tax and shipping, that’d be $114,920 to buy 221 units. He may have made 40k, but dude definitely wasn’t struggling going into it.
