recently, person posted a quite amusing but besides deplorable post on r/gaming on Reddit. A exploiter looks to have purchased a PS5 control on eBay.

The picture posted on Reddit indicates that the drug user ( u/crihyde ) received a PS5 DualSense Box, but inside was an Xbox One control alternatively. To make the post slightly curious, the restrainer has a color-scheme that matches the PS5 DualSense control ; half white and half total darkness. The only thing that is missing are the blasphemous lines.
The comments are flooded with a mix of laugh, actual sincerity, and stories of curiously similar situations of incorrect orders coming in over the years. The order could have been a mistake, of class, but the fact that the Xbox Controller shares the discolor schema of the PS5 DualSense restrainer and was inside of the PS5 DualSense packaging makes it seem more on purpose than a mistake. eBay has already promised to put an end to PS5 and Xbox scammers ; specifically when sellers merely send over an image of the console and nothing else. Sending the incorrectly restrainer with a fresh paint job is a new low .
eBay and on-line scalpers are of run a big problem whenever a new generation of consoles launch. It seems unfair to many that individuals who want to purchase the console table at the manufacturer ‘s suggest retail price are unable to and others are able to snag multiple, lone to then resell them for double that rate. Of path, scalping is one issue that technically is n’t illegal, even if there are regions or retailers or locations around the world that are looking to make it thus ; like the UK. interim, a total scam — like selling a nibble of wallpaper and pretending it is an Xbox Series X or giving person an Xbox One accountant and claiming it is a PS5 DualSense restrainer — is an entirely different story .
For the Reddit user who did n’t get the PS5 DualSense they paid for, hopefully, eBay will help them out. In the interim, there are besides Reddit users who are scamming the scammers by sending scalpers to meet up locations that do not exist and things of that nature. Whether or not that will fix the problem is so far to be seen, but it has at least generated a effective laugh from many gamers .
