A few days ago, UK reseller group CrepChiefNotify announced that it had acquired a batch of 1,000 Xbox Series X consoles. Previously, these same people managed to buy 3,500 PS5s for resale. As it turned out, the new Xbox never made it to enterprising citizens – the Very store canceled all their pre-orders.
The company said the purchase was made through a technical error and canceled orders. For a while, users could pre-order, but the consoles themselves were not there – it was a store error. Customers will receive a full refund in approximately 10 days.
Unfortunately, it is not known if this was really a mistake inside the store, or if Very is fighting resellers in this way.
While the Xbox Series X and PS5 are still in short supply around the world, the actions of the resellers are not receiving positive feedback from the community. In Toronto, they even began to rob them .
