3500 consoles and other RTXs purchased through bots

In recent weeks, when a manufacturer is unable to deliver to the dealer network properly, he quickly points the finger at the bots … While bots are not the key to the current problem, there are those who have figured out how to make significant profits from the multiple shortages currently affecting the market.

The shortage is good for some

We know from Business Insider that a group of European resellers have organised themselves to buy as many PlayStation 5 consoles as possible in Europe and the UK in recent weeks. No need to be jealous as this same group has also been working on graphics cards and Xboxes of course. In its survey, BI was able to talk to a manager of one of these groups based in the UK called CrepChiefNotify.

As you can see, we’ve gone from masks to RTX 30s to Ryzen 5000s and now consoles. Bots buyers-office The group is very organised, with a base of 12 permanent “employees” (it is difficult to say whether the term “employees” is qualified here) whose aim is to maintain the robots and help its network of members. The members of this group are rather eclectic as they have gone from trainers to masks to graphics cards to, at this point, consoles. “Obviously, for the brands, these bots tamers are guilty of all evils.
