Dallas Cowboys receiver buys Wal-Mart shoppers PS4s on launch night

While waiting in line at a Dallas Wal-Mart to purchase Sony's next-generation consoles, at least six individuals had their new hardware purchased for them by a generous football star, according to a handful of tweets from the lucky shoppers.

Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant showed up at the store to pick up his PlayStation 4 at midnight, as soon as the console became available. According to a series of tweets from witnesses and their friends, Bryant then purchased systems for the next several people in line.

The PlayStation 4 was released last night in North America. During a launch event held in New York City, the company sold 444 consoles directly to players waiting in line to get their hands on the hardware when the clock struck midnight.
