Last week, numerous sellers restocked the PlayStation 5 after extraordinary demand, but one scalper on the Internet handled to pre-order an incredible 2,000 units himself.
The scalper– who goes by the name Carnage– required to Twitter to flaunt about pre-ordering the PS5 consoles from U.K. retailer GAME, stating “It simply gets simpler whenever.” Naturally, the Internet was outraged by the post, as many players attempted but failed to secure pre-orders themselves. Many criticized Carnage for his actions, and expressed their discouragement, one user saying “At this point [its] not worth trying anymore” and another commenting that its “utter *****.”
Some users also connected to GAME, requesting them to cancel pre-orders in the hopes of avoiding scalpers like Carnage from taking advantage of the system, which prompted a business representative to react with an official declaration describing that all orders go through checks. “At today time these orders are still pre-orders and as such, no payments have yet been drawn from consumers,” the spokesperson stated. “Payments will begin as soon as our order checks have actually been completed.” Theres no reassurance that Carnages orders will really be canceled.
Carnage bot secured 2,000 PS5 today from Game, utter *****.

Carnage bots doing better than ever from @GAMEdigitals PS5 stop drop this early morning. I want a PS5 badly however refuse to fund scalpers so will just have to wait it seems.
Some users also reached out to GAME, requesting them to cancel pre-orders in the hopes of preventing scalpers like Carnage from taking benefit of the system, which triggered a business spokesperson to respond with an official declaration explaining that all orders are subject to checks. “At the present time these orders are still pre-orders and as such, no payments have actually yet been taken from customers,” the representative said. Theres no reassurance that Carnages orders will in fact be canceled.
