With so much onslaught I guess yourself Sony not counted. After seven long years, the new generation of consoles is finally here PlayStation on the market and sold out everywhere within a few hours. Even with the pre-orders, many went Fans empty because some buyers are several Consoles have ordered – only to sell them on at high prices. So you can currently find numerous auctions eBay and listings on eBay classified ads that PlayStation 5 consoles offer for sale. Sometimes the sellers are asking twice the original price, i.e. instead of € 499 Fans € 1,000 or more for the PS5 Disc Edition sheet metal. Fans should therefore be particularly careful when buying a PS5 from resellers.

It is clear some Fans Don’t be afraid to put down horrendous sums in the hope of another one PlayStation 5 to obtain. For example, a fan offered 50,050 euros on an eBay campaign – for an empty PS5 box. Immediately after the purchase, he seems to have noticed the error, because the seller promptly received a negative rating: “ATTENTION PEOPLE, RIP-OFF“. In the case of the original offer, however, the description and title state that only the carton is offered – is it a rip-off or has it Fan just hastily bid? Since you can usually not change the title of an offer after the first bid, it does not seem to be a rip-off from the seller.

So that you don’t fall for rip-offs or empty ones PS5Cardboard boxes the first rule is always: read the offer and the description of the offer carefully and thoroughly. Make screenshots before you submit an offer so that you can prove in case of doubt that the item description and title did not state that it was only about the carton acts. Incidentally, if the seller changes the sales description after you bid, you can withdraw your bid. If necessary, ask the seller before bidding whether he has the Consoles or just the carton sells and also takes screenshots of the entertainment. So in the case of one you would have rip off Evidence to convict the culprit.

If you are really the victim of fraud, you should of course also report it. If possible, only bid on auctions with the PayPal payment option. There you can with one rip off take advantage of buyer protection. So: keep your eyes open when buying a console! By the way, if you managed to get one, you can turn on HDR and 4K on your PS5.
