Max Nekrasov, 15, is relentless in his repeated search for a sought-after treasure that’s been elusive during the COVID-19 pandemic: The Playstation 5.

The Toronto teen runs a Twitter account with more than 19,000 followers that flags whenever a retailer restocks the popular video game console.

“If you’re really trying each [product] drop, you’re probably going to get one,” said Nekrasov, who has already scored his own Playstation 5, but wants to help others find theirs. “But it can take really a few months before you can get one, because this stock — there’s not that much at all.”
