Every gamer is almost obsessed with play station and so the latest PS5 release made the fans go wild. PS5 was released on the 12th of November and launched in the UAE on the 19th of November as of last year. For its high demand, it has been out of stock immediately! In light of that, here is how some Dubai people are getting the PS5.   

In Dubai particularly, you can’t get the console in any retail outlets. This has led to a trend known as scalping. Where some people use bots to buy multiple PS5’s (Since online outlets usually only allow one purchase per person) and sell them at a much higher rate than the market price. Bots, or software that helps scalpers know when products are in stock and can hammer retailers with orders faster than any regular customer could hope to on their own. Bots help scalpers know when PS5’s are available in stock, and will continuously order faster than any normal person can do on their own.

The price of PS5 in Dubai is AED2099, so getting it via another buyer such as Amazon could be for more!

Most gaming hobbyists consider this practice unethical and they don’t purchase it based on ethics. But some people are willing to make that purchase.

In Dubai, right now purchasing from scalpers is the only way to get your hands on the next-gen system. Otherwise, you may have to wait a lot longer to get a chance to purchase one at a regular price.
