“Some people were able to order the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles for a short period of time on Sunday as a result of a technical error,” said a Very spokeswoman. “However, these items are not for sale and the affected customers have been notified that their order has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.”
Apparently, some customers who bought only one console were also affected. It’s unclear if Very canceled the order either because the order was placed by sculpting or because the website wasn’t actually in stock for the console. We are working on refunds to affected customers.
Scalper has been scooping up the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles since the system went up for pre-orders earlier this year. On launch, the Xbox Series X sold for as high as $ 1000, and the PS5 was priced close to $ 2000.
