I smelled fake news as soon as I saw that a Korean harbor worker “was a gamer and was waiting for 3080”… because 3080 have been widely available everywhere in Korea since a week after the launch. Still now as well, though the price suddenly increased last week (before they were close to retail prices).

Lol “abandoned”. I’m pretty sure someone was holding onto it so they can sell it at a higher price. I’ve seen this happened before on rice commodities where the country was hit by a famine, then rice farmers who have successful rice harvest, deliberately holding onto the rice into their huge storage containers and wait until the people starve so much and the demand rose so high that they can sell the rice at 300% profit.

It didn’t happen.

Don’t be so gullible McFly…that’s about $250,000,000 worth of product. Nobody is losing track of that.

For those of you that haven’t read from the top, or figured it out, in Spain December 28th is the equivalent of the U.S. April Fools Day. Got me too when I first read it!

Yeah, maybe this didn’t happen… But I’ve been lived through enough hoarding issues from commodity that I won’t be surprised if someone would to make this actually happen for real.
