New PS5 report is good news for PlayStation fans this Black Friday

A new PS5 report has good news for PlayStation fans hoping to snag a console this Black Friday, Cyber ​​Monday or during the bigger holiday season before Christmas. Two years after its initial release, the PS5 remains a popular item. Not only is it still in incredible demand, but scalpers with bots continue to poach stock to pump up the reseller market. However, according to a new report, the market is no longer as lucrative as it used to be and so scalpers are starting to lose interest – what?

The report comes on the trail of Netacea, which recently released its Quarterly Index revealing the top five products targeted by scalpers and their bots. The data was for the months of July, August and September. And for the first time since release, the PS5 wasn’t in the top three items. It is now the fourth. Not a big improvement, but an improvement. What’s behind it? Well apparently there is more money to be made reselling the Adidas Yeezy Slide Bone, the Nike Dunk Low Panda and Panini Donruss Optic Football Trading Cards

According to netacea, the decrease in bot activity is due to an increase in inventory, which in turn lowers resale profit, although this domino effect is gradual. And this is where the news gets really good. Sony is expected to have a significant amount of stock this holiday season, which should mean further bot activity should decrease.

That said, if you’re not interested in online refills after two years of frustration, you don’t have to. More retailers are starting to sell the console in stores. And the more the stock increases, the more this will continue.
