Last week, a custom black PS5 model went on sale via the store SUP3R5, promising a sleek and classic look for the PS5–which is currently only available in a white version. The systems went out of stock on the site almost immediately, but following what the site says were threats to its safety, orders are being refunded and the system is no longer being sold at all.
According to VGC, a statement on the company’s now-deleted Twitter account said the sale didn’t go as planned, as players were charged without knowing if they had actually secured a system, and a later message said existing orders were canceled due to threats to the staff’s safety.
“Last night, our team began receiving credible threats to their safety,” the store said in the statement. “We take these threats seriously. We aren’t willing to risk the safety and well-being of our team, or the potential impact this would bring to delivering your order.”
