Soulja Boy tweeted: “The microchip shortage in China restricted it. But we will ship them all new ones that are upgraded and double the price they paid for free. New ones are $400 with A.I. old ones were $200 they ship this Friday. Sorry for the delay my brother.” Considering the “scammer” label, the Chicago native exhibited immense poise and empathy for the video game console purchaser.

Several months later, he claimed he was selling his video game brand for $140M to Atari and later said he had ownership stake in Atari, which the gaming pioneer refuted.
