If you are one of the players mad at the people scalping PS5’s for a steep profit, you may be comforted by the fact that one fan has seemingly duped a scalper in a hilarious fashion while he was trying to sell one over in Scotland.

It’s no secret that over the past few weeks fans have been unable to get their hands on a PS5.

While this is partially due to Sony seemingly failing to produce enough supply to meet demand, another unfortunate aspect of this unavailability is scalpers. People will buy up the consoles and then sell them at a higher price because they know people want it.

These scalpers are obviously annoying considering it just means you have to put up a ton of cash if you want one and since you can’t find many at stores, it’s the easiest way to get your hands on one.

Now, one fan has seemingly gotten revenge on a scalper in a very simple but hilarious way.

One person sent someone who was trying to sell a PS5 for around $1.2K to a comedy club.

According to a Reddit post with almost 25,000 upvotes, one person responded to an ad for someone selling a PS5 for £950 ($1,200 USD) in Glasgow, Scotland and told him to go an address in order to meet-up.

The address, it turns out, was for a comedy club which he then told the scalper to go into for a job since he thought he could sell the console for such a ridiculous price.

Deserved? from ScottishPeopleTwitter

The whole conversation is very clearly a variant of the original meme from a few years back, where one person asks for a Macbook that someone is selling for $200 and is told to go to a comedy club because that was a “joke.”

Despite it’s unoriginality, it’s still hilarious that it happened in general, especially with these scalpers on the rise.

Not being able to buy the console you wanted stinks, so it’s not hard to understand if it was satisfying to screw over the scalper like that. Here’s hoping these scalpers go away in the near future.

The upcoming Fortnite v15.21 update patch downtime has been announced, ushering in the next quests in the game as well as a new Boss Character, Mythic Item, and more.

Rumors and leaks have already dominated much of the v15.21 news cycle, and is already giving players a good indication of which new and exciting skin should be hitting the battle royale soon.

Meanwhile, Epic Games are going to try to pump some more content for players to sift through with an updated questline called the Jungler Hunter Quests, which should occupy players until the v15.30 update.

But before then, the Fortnite community should be aware that the v15.21 downtime is expected to come through on January 20 at 1 AM PST / 4 AM EST / 9:00 UTC.

 

“Hunt or be hunted,” will be the theme for this next update which should already hype up players for what the Fortnite devs have in store.

Here’s everything we know that could come in the v15.21 patch update hitting the live Fortnite servers on January 20.
