PS5 Stolen and Replaced With Rice?!

PS5 was recently released in the UK, with many customers ordering from Amazon. However, many have been left bewildered with the fact that they were delivered bags of rice instead of a PS5!

It seems as though they have been allegedly stolen before they were delivered on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th November. Buyers had pre-ordered these devices months in advance and took to Twitter to share their dismay at being left out in the cold. Having their expensive consoles (£450) replaced by various kitchen appliances and other random electrical goods. Such as foot massagers, cat food, and George Foreman grills. Whereas others had their consoles marked as delivered when in fact they weren’t.

MTV Journo Bex April May tweeted about having her PS5 ‘missed’ around Thursday afternoon. When in fact no delivery had been attempted. However when she did receive a package, it was nothing by an air fryer.

The console has been highly sort after in both the US and the UK. Amazon sold out of pre-orders in September and when they went on sale on launch day, they too sold out within minutes at 1pm. However some buyers are putting their consoles online for over £1,000!
