Another clear example of how overly eager fans ruin things for themselves. Remember Cyberpunk 2077 death threats? I guess we all couldn’t forget how half-baked of a game was the result of such belligerency. Weirdly enough, it happened to SUP3R5 too, and their $200 more expensive version of a PS2 30th Anniversary PS5.
The consoles sold out in only 20 minutes, as SUP3R5’s website struggled with keeping everything at bay. Worse, some people’s cards got charged despite having no confirmation on procuring a console. But the real clicher of it all was having the units be scalped on eBay just a few minutes after release and with a price roughly double of the current selling price. A statement was released by SUP3R5 on Twitter regarding the issue:
Their best foot forward was to cancel, as the people on their team are currently being threatened because of the re-skinned next-gen Sony console.
As far as modding the PS5 goes, we have seen a dealer try to push out skins late last year – which ended with things getting adjacent to a Sony lawsuit. Canadian company Dbrand thinks otherwise, as they are pushing to put out designed PS5 faceplates soon enough. As for a lawsuit, their retort was: “We encourage them to try.” A caption on its Reddit post also reads: “sue us, Sony.”
