It is still very difficult to get a PS5 console today. The worldwide scarcity of the console is difficult for many gamers, and it often takes a very quick process to get one. The Japanese retail chain “Yodobashi Camera” has also experienced this recently. The Akihabara branch organized a physical sale on PS5 on a “first come, first served” basis. In retrospect, it didn’t turn out to be such a smart idea …
According to Kotaku there would have been 300 consoles available, while the horde of clients consisted of a much larger number. When the crowd seemed to realize that there wouldn’t be enough supplies for everyone, the proverbial hell broke loose. The employees of the store were repulsed by the huge, increasingly crowded crowd. The police eventually had to intervene and the sale was halted. You can watch some pictures on the video below.

Scenes like this are of course painful to watch, especially since the current pandemic is still not over. We all love to play games, but keep it safe!
