PS5: Lotteries for purchase continue in Japan, difficult life for scalpers
Scalpers seem to have an easy time in the West and in the UK there is admitted that they used a trick to buy PS5 before real availability, in Japan, however, the situation seems to be slightly different, thanks to the now well-known lottery system. br>
The raffles are also quite popular with us and are used in particular during the launch of very coveted products such as particularly sought-after sneakers or luxury watches produced in limited edition, they are not particularly widespread in the consumer electronics trade .

In Japan, given the scarcity of consoles available, the main retailers are continuing to sell PS5 only via lottery, therefore interested parties will have to provide their personal data (name, surname, residential address, telephone number and a copy of an identity document) and queue up, hoping to be among the lucky ones drawn for the purchase of the console.

A method certainly impractical but which seems to work well as a deterrent for scalpers, touts and businessmen ready to do anything to grab a console to resell immediately at a higher price. This solution is regularly adopted by the largest Japanese stores and the analysts' idea is that the system can find fertile ground for a long time, even when the distribution of PS5 becomes more regular, so as to avoid the volatilization of entire stocks in a few minutes. .
