Some crafty customers tricked Walmart into selling the PS4 for $90 – here’s how

There are sure to be plenty of great gaming deals over the holidays, but not even the best of Black Friday is going to be able to compete with this ridiculous scam. Earlier this month, Walmart announced that it would match the prices of certain online retailers, including Amazon.

“We’re committed to providing low prices every day, on everything,” Walmart says on its website. “So if you find a current lower online price from an online retailer on an identical, in-stock product, tell us and we’ll match it.”
