Why did Wal-Mart have the prototype PlayStation and XBOX controllers removed?

I only ask because back in the day you could play a video game on the prototype controllers before you bought them and one day they removed the prototype controllers

    Those werent protypes, they were finished units... not like you can test anything from the retail display consoles.because most of the time the controllers half covered in a mount and whatever you can grab onto is so greasy and disgusting or damaged,  and the console is running custom retail os with limited functionality, and the performance is degraded since the console is overheated being on 24/7 trapped in the enclosed box

    There's still a small thing calls a pandemic out in the world.  They don't want to have to sanitize the controllers every time someone touches them so they just had them removed so they can't be blamed for spreading the virus.
