The user community is still desperately looking to buy a PS5, and although Sony has replaced many units in online stores in recent days, there are still many people who are trying to get the new desktop console of the Japanese company, and one of the largest difficulties they have to face is not just other users, but also bots.
And it is that if you have ever understood why a PS5 has been put on sale and within 30 seconds it was already sold out, the fault lies with the bots, programmed by resellers who try to get hold of any unit that comes out of PS5 in the online stores, and then resell them even at double the price.
But bots are not infallible, and according to gamepro, a father has managed to fool one of them into thinking that a PS5 was being auctioned, but it was simply a drawing.
The best thing about it is that it is not an image, but from a drawing that your child has made on the PS5, and one of the bots has “bitten” enough to bid and take the purchase.
Although the father has only managed to win € 4.73 of the bid and € 5.66 of the shipping costs, he has at least been able to fool one of the bots, although eBay is quite strict about it.
It would not be the first time that one of these bids on photos or images of PS5 has been canceled by eBay, which is fighting against this type of practice where there are people who directly sell you a photo or image of PS5 (clarifying it in the description that few people read) and causing others to fall.
