PS5 action it's almost impossible to find at the moment, and the consoles sell for over £ 1,000 / $ 1,500 on eBay, well above Sony's recommended retail price. Now, an interview with Business Insider shed light on the seedy reseller market, with a UK group claiming its members have purchased 3,500 systems to date.
So how does it work? Well, the organization sells subscriptions to budding resellers and then gives them access to a variety of different services that help them get some highly sought after products. It ranges from bots, yes, to information and advice. The idea is that once purchased, these items can be resold at a profit.
Part of the group's goal is to find out what is in demand; Apparently the spas were huge at one point during the coronavirus pandemic. Today's high-tech product is the PS5, and of course, with dealers acquiring every available stock, demand is increasing, further lining the pockets of dealers.

However, the group claims that many of its members actually buy the consoles manually, which means they do it professionally as a job. The only way to beat them is to match them.
