GAME has offered more insight into the systems it has in place to prevent scalpers using bots to snap up new PlayStation 5 stock.
A statement released to VGC assured that the UK retailer is only selling one PS5 unit per customer and has checks and processes to ensure no one is purchasing multiple consoles.
"PlayStation 5 [continues] to be in very high demand and that demand far outweighs current supply," the spokesperson said. "We have strong measures in place to help ensure that our 'one per customer' statement is maintained to allow for as many individual customers to successfully purchase as possible.
"All pre-orders are subject to automatic checks, and order updates -- such as cancellations following these checks -- take place after a customer will have received a valid order confirmation email.
"At the present time, these orders are still pre-orders and as such no payments have yet been taken from customers. Payments will commence once our order checks have been completed."
