Anger as Asda PS5 stock sells out
Many customers were left disappointed after the quickly selling PS5s were labelled as “out of stock”.
One wrote on Twitter: “Out of stock one minute after stock drop! Something very wrong with all of this Asda.”
While another added: “There is no way they all sold out that quick without bots.”
Another frustrated customer said: “Asda didn’t coat themselves in any glory with this one.
“No queue, no verification, no policies in place.
“Just chuck them online and let the quickest bot take them all.”
