They definitely do not. Im here 3 months after the PS5 came out and its still impossible to find one. Sony needs to learn how to get consoles to people without the scalping, they have literally no clue how to do it.

The whole situation is a shit show, but the only reason people are willing to pay exorbitant amounts is because of the scarcity of inventory. Totally agree the people still buying at those prices are partly to blame, but judging by the numbers of unsold units at crazy prices on marketplaces like Ebay, the stores would Read more

I was just thinking today about how eBaum’s World stole a bunch of content from Newgrounds and people were PISSED on the BBC. Then YouTube came around and it became such an overloaded amount of stolen content that no one cared anymore. I think YouTube felt more like ‘exposure’, where as eBaum’s World just sucked Read more
