PS5 is back available in Tokyo: shop stormed by an angry crowd
Yesterday the Yodobashi Camera store in Akihabara - an area of ​​Tokyo famous for its numerous stores specializing in video games, electronics and anime - received a large amount of PlayStation 5 stocks: at the time of the morning opening, however, the situation has literally degenerated.

The poor organization together with the great hunger for next-gen shared by the Japanese gamers, who for the occasion have abandoned their traditional composure, have generated the most total chaos, with a crowd disorderly of people who invaded the shop without respecting the slightest rule of social distancing and ignoring the ticket system made available by Yodobashi to avoid crowding. The event was documented with a mobile phone by one of those present at the crowd, as you can see yourself in the video attached at the bottom of this news. The situation returned to normal only after the involvement of the police, who went to the scene to avoid the recurrence of the riots. According to one of those present, the crowd also included several resellers and scalpers, whose goal was to buy PS5s for resale at a higher price.

At the moment, PlayStation 5 is very difficult to find all over the world. and most likely it will be for a very long time. According to Lisa Su, CEO of AMD - the company that produces the internal components of the console - the shortage will last until the second half of 2021. This means that, unfortunately, such scenes could recur in the future.
