Akihabara PS5 Shipment Line
Even though the PlayStation 5 was released on November 12, 2020, it’s still sold out everywhere, so when a new shipment arrives anywhere, chaos ensues. This includes Akihabara’s Yodobashi Camera, and rather than use a lottery system or restrict purchases to the store’s special credit card holders, they offered the 300 consoles as first come, first served, this time around. Let’s just say that things got so rowdy that police needed to be called in.

Unfortunately, since the store’s employees weren’t able to get things under control, the entire sale had to be canceled after just 10-minutes of the doors opening. The Japanese government has declared a state of emergency due to the current situation, so that hasn’t helped things either, but we expect the first come, first served format to be replaced with a lottery system next time.
