The GEO chain has announced that it will sell the console only to those who own a PS4 and win a lottery in a bid to combat touts.
Other Japanese chains have adopted a lottery system, where only the winner has the right to buy a PS5, always on condition that they meet the requirements to participate and take place in a lottery.
This strict measure will come into force starting from 19 August. While touts will be hacked off that they will not get a chance to make a swift buck on the PS5 there will be lots of customers who may not have a PS4 or have sold it in anticipation of buying PS5 who will be gutted by the move.
Perhaps a nice Xbox?
