UK Members of Parliament call for ban on bulk buying consoles


https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/ ... g-consoles



Monday's call for action is specifically asking to make the resale of products bought in bulk using automated bots illegal, saying that doing so would "[deny] unscrupulous vendors the chance to make themselves vast profits at the expense of genuine gamers and computer users, while also deterring fraudulent cybercriminal activity."

There's such a thing as an adaptor 🔌.
Nah, just wait until it's made specifically for the UK market.
I remember a load of problems in the early days of other gaming consoles because of issues such as this.

Still can't get one. Don't expect scalpers to stop stealing them until we can actually go to the shops and pick it off their shelves
