ORGEVAL, France: French police pushed back hundreds of people scrambling to get their hands on PlayStation 4s prices at the launch of a new Lidl supermarket outside Paris on Wednesday.
The store in Orgeval, west of Paris, had offered the PS4s for € 95 instead of the usual retail price of € 299. But he pulled out of the offer and delayed opening the store due to the size of the crowd.
Video footage shows a can of pepper spray being released over heads of the rowdy crowd leaping towards the glass doors at the entrance store. Moments later, people were turning around, rubbing their eyes and spluttering.
“The sale of the PlayStation 4 is canceled and the device has been returned to suppliers. Coming home, a voice is heard: a loudspeaker.
BFM TV cited Lidl as saying the launch has been postponed for security reasons.
