PS5 Isn’t Available Yet
Since we are talking about PS5 we must talk about how this console is basically missing from the market. There are a lot of scalpers who have bought the PS5 and are selling the device at a rate that is more than the market.
Sony has been trying to ramp up the production yet somehow the issue still remains and gamers are still in anguish due to the issue of scalping. Hopefully, the situation improves soon and gamers get their hands on a new PS5 console!
