The demand for a PS5 is reaching insane new heights and Wal-Mart is taking action to make them more available.
Sony’s PlayStation 5 is easily one of the hottest products of the holiday season, so it’s unfortunate that it’s in such short supply. Thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, bots, and scalpers, it’s been quite difficult for many consumers to get a PlayStation 5 console of their own. Unfortunately, this scarcity has led to some real world violence, with the latest incident reportedly taking place at a Walmart near Charlotte, North Carolina.
First reported by TMZ, two women had a confrontation at Walmart on December 13, allegedly fighting over a PlayStation 5. The confrontation escalated into a full-blown fight between the women, one wearing a hoodie and the other a jean jacket. Early in the fight, the woman in a hoodie got the advantage over the woman in the jean jacket, standing over her and punching her repeatedly. The fight ended after the woman in the hoodie repeatedly stomped on the other woman’s head, seemingly knocking her out in the process.
