I really underestimated how much bots would be a problem. I'm convinced that not a single human being has gotten any of the PS5s being sold by Walmart today.
At least with the in-store situations, as much as it sucked to have to wait in person for a while, you had to have a body there to get one. With the way things have been handled today, I'm sure there are going to be quite a few people with numerous consoles they plan to sell, and much fewer people who want to have just one who can't get one at all.
In the future, assuming we have another online-only situation like this, I'd really like to see the manufacturer handle all the distribution themselves. That way they could keep a closer eye on who's ordering multiple with the same address/same card number/etc. and actually limit those people to 1.
