PS5 Beat Toilet Paper in One of Google’s List of Top Searches in the United States This Year


The PlayStation 5 and toilet paper have a few things in common: they both experienced severe shortages this year, were picked up by scalpers and hoarders, and were nowhere to be found. However, when the Covid-19 lockdowns eased, people were able to purchase toilet paper. The same can’t be said for the PS5, which released last month and is expected to remain in short supply until mid 2021.

That’s probably why folks in the United States spent a lot of time Googling where to buy a PS5 because “Where to buy PS5” beat “Where to buy toilet paper” in the search engine’s “Where to buy” list of 2020. Xbox Series X appeared in the fourth spot, and Nintendo Switch sits in the seventh position. Overall, it’s a tie between gaming products and sanitary products.
