Christmas came early for several shoppers at a Dallas Walmart, with Dallas Cowboysreceiver Dez Bryant playing the role of Santa Claus.

Bryant showed up to purchase a Sony PlayStation 4 on the night of the new video game system's launch and decided on a whim to purchase one for several other shoppers who were waiting in line.

The PlayStation 4s retail for a little more than $500. At local video game stores across North Texas, gamers waited outside for the new PS4 to be released.

A few of the shoppers tweeted about Bryant's generosity, including one man who posted a picture of himself posing with Bryant at the store.

"Damn, @DezBryant just bought whoever was in line at a Walmart in Dallas a Ps4," wrote Marquis Rodgers on Twitter.

"Holy crap, @Dez Bryant is cool AF just bought a bunch of people PS4s, wish I was there lol," tweeted Ben Freeman.

Bryant likes to boast that he's the world's best Madden video game player on PlayStation. He's challenged fans and teammates online to games. He has a few new friends to play against now.
