Last week, a group of redditors called SUP3R5 announced sales of the PS2 themed PS5. Demand was so great that all 300 black consoles were pre-ordered in 20 minutes.
It would have taken less time, but the site was experiencing problems due to the loads.
However, after that, the enthusiasts started having problems. According to them, threats began to come to them, but the reasons for this behavior on the part of users remained unknown. All pre-orders have been canceled with a full refund.
The group previously promised to bring the black consoles back on sale, although the SUP3R5 twitter has now been removed and there is little hope for a resumption of sales. At the same time, the network has already conducted an investigation against this group.
SUP3R5 reportedly wanted to carry out a fraudulent scheme to steal user identity. There was no refund, according to users. Everything was planned in advance.
