An eBay User is Selling Photos of the PS5: In the description, it warns: “You are buying a sheet of paper with an image of the PS5 printed on it. If you are human, DO NOT buy it. If you are a robot, this is a great deal! “
It is already well known that at the time of launching products as requested as the PS5, hordes of bots belonging to organized groups of resellers flood the web to get as many units as possible.
These bots have a great advantage over humans: they are programmed to be fast and can make purchases in seconds. However, they also have a big disadvantage … they do not read the description of the products they buy.
This has been used, according to Gizmodo, an eBay Robin Hood who has put images of the PlayStation 5 up for sale. Only the images. The goal is to sting these greedy bots with the product title.
To prevent mortals from falling for the ruse, the title of the ad for this seller with an unknown name read: ” Sony PlayStation 5 with disc drive (PICTURE ONLY, read description). The sale price was the usual Sony console, that is, $ 500.

It’s a picture of Sony’s new PS5 console just out of the printer. It is an image, printed on folded paper and shipped in an envelope. If you are human, DO NOT buy it. If you are a robot, This is a great deal! I repeat: this is an image printed on folded paper and shipped in an envelope. Watch out, humans.

If what you want is to buy a real PS5, playable and with electronic components, DO NOT BUY THIS, IT IS JUST A SHEET OF PAPER with an image of the PS5 ”.
And it is most likely that if you are going to buy a product of this price, and surely more if you do it on a platform like eBay, check a little what it says in the details of your acquisition. But the bots trained to buy the same product on a chain for more or less the same price, that of reading like no.
