Since the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S went into pre-order, we have seen several resellers take advantage of the limited number of consoles, and have increased the price of hardware parts. Now, one group in particular, which had revealed that they have more than 3,500 PS5s, has commented that they had in their possession more than a thousand Xbox Series X. However, this story has a different ending.

Recently, this group of resellers made headlines after they began selling annual and lifetime subscriptions to their bot service, with which they have managed to get the next generation consoles before anyone else. In this way they secured a large quantity of Xbox Series X from a popular UK store.

However, this time his plan did not work, since the store, Very, revealed that all of her orders had been canceled. This is what the local commented on Sky News:

“As a result of a technical error, some people were able to place orders for the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles for a short time on Sunday. However, these items are not for sale and the affected customers have received a notice stating that the orders have been canceled. We apologize for the confusion caused. ”

Sadly, it appears that common buyers were also affected by this massive cancellation. Similarly, Very has not disclosed whether this decision was the result of a practice against resellers., or if at the moment they do not have enough consoles to meet the high demand. Meanwhile, they plan to pay the buyers back.

Although resellers have always been a factor to consider, in recent weeks they have attracted a lot of attention on social networks by showing off their high number of consoles that they plan to sell at ridiculous prices, as well as a series of misfortunes where they have been affected.
