Like the ps5. These "people" cheat the system by using bots to jump the queues and fill in all the details before an actual human can even access the site.
You can identify who the pond life are by looking at other websites selling these consoles at double or triple the price the very next day.
I'd suggest that proper retailers who sell their products with a rrp put procedures in place from the start to stop people using bots to cheat and scam others.

There's ways around it to stop this from happening imo, and it would give the genuine people a fair chance of buying their product at a fair price.

That sounds like sour grapes 'cos you couldn't get one, marra, but I agree entirely [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I don't know how they work, but I presume that 'bots' are some kind of robots that cheat systems, in which case retailers should do something about them (assuming that they are able to), but they probably won't give a toss 'cos they will not care about who they sell to [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It's completely wrong, but now't will happen to put it right, I fear [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I couldn't even get the sites up to begin with to even try to get one. Most of them crashed, and it's because of these scalpers, I mean how is that even fair if you don't even get a chance to be in among the crowd if people are cheating?

Its like being in a queue, and these just barge past everyone to get to the front... That wouldn't be allowed to happen, so why should they get away with it here?

Then they rub it in people's faces by charging double or triple the rrp... Haway man.

Its the worst I've ever seen it.. That's never happened with anything I've ever bought.

There's just been a story on BBC Breakfast where a Burnley player (no idea about his name 'cos I've never heard of him) gave 2 away as gifts to 2 young lads - 1 poorly, which, as Dan (presenter) said, he got 'cos of 'contacts' !

That's an example of why we're at the bottom of the list . . . . we're not important Sad

p.s. I can't get one for my boy 😣

The simple solution is to wait for the initial demand to be supplied then when the retailers repeats to arrive purchase at RRP from them rather than the secondary market.

Yes, but that will be after Christmas and it's a bit difficult to explain to a ten year old why he didn't get his present from Santa Crying or Very sad
