PS5: Passes the console as a router, deceives his family


Last November we saw the worldwide launch of the PlayStation 5. As we all know, the stocks placed on the market by Sony have not been able to satisfy all the fans who would have liked to play with PS5 since day one of the console. The situation has given rise to unpleasant repercussions such as touting, which still resists today on various trading websites, but there are also those who have done worse.

Precisely because of this shortage of stocks around the world , there are some players who are trying hard to get a PS5 at home as soon as possible. There are those who have even been willing to lie to their family, like a Vietnamese man who passed off the Sony gaming platform as a router. This, however, is only part of the plan carried out by the man.

To make this scene appear as real as possible, the man also requested the help of a friend of his, who would have introduced posing as a technician called to mount the router. This story was devised by the man to hide from his family the huge expense he had to shell out to buy his PS5. That said, we have no further news regarding this situation, and we don't know if the man's family later discovered the trick. another person had tried to hide the purchase of the console from his wife, passing it off as a dehumidifier. It therefore seems that the Sony console, in some cases, is taking the form of a whole host of other appliances. What do you think of this man's plan? Tell us yours with a comment in the dedicated section.

If you haven't done so yet, you can book the next games coming out on PS5 on Amazon at these addresses: Returnal and Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart. On Amazon Italy you will also find the PS5 page, keep an eye on it so as not to miss the moment when it will be available again.
