UK-based CrepChiefNotify, which bought 3,500 PS5s, has now taken over a large batch of Xbox Series X. Last Sunday, dealers ended up with about 1,000 Microsoft consoles.
The group’s actions were accompanied by messages on social networks:
We’ve just notified our friends of an Xbox Series X resupply at a very famous online store. They managed to save over 1000 consoles. Those who did not have time were late.
Previously, CrepChiefNotify defended its actions by the fact that many were on vacation, fired or disadvantaged due to the pandemic. Some members of the group could make their children happy, although they might be left with nothing at all at Christmas.
Xbox gaming chief Phil Spencer is aware of the challenge faced by honest buyers. He and Microsoft are trying to come up with a different approach to pre-order and purchase the Xbox Series.
However, according to him, the shortage of consoles is likely to remain until April 2021.
