    What was the first system they did that to? Or maybe it was a different group, I don't remember.

    Beats me. I think it's funny as hell that they did it in front of the fanboys.

    i think it started with the ipod, and its gone through every single major thing released since then; psp, ds, ds lite, wii, 360, ps3, etc.

    Ha! The Television Camera man just couldn't miss it.

    And the looks of both the PS3 and Wii buyers was priceless


    Yet I feel a little hallow inside

    Ah, I think it was the 360 one that I saw. It's kind of only funny once.

    Some guy got shot the other day while standing in line for a PS3. Wonder what he thinks about this.

    I also wonder what the dude who sold his 60G PS3 for 9k on E-Bay thinks...and the dude who bought it...

    Every time these things go on sale I think that I should go buy a bunch and re-sell them on eBay.

    Although it probably wouldn't work, they're always out of stock in two seconds flat down here.

    They have a '1 console per person' rule at most stores.

    Which is why you dress in a series of cunning disguises.

    I remember an old site www.macbash.org that was dedicated to the destruction of Macs, inluding dragging them behind a pickup truck. The concept is an oldie, but goodie.

    So you wage war against the companies you hate by buying their products? I know they smashed it, but Sony still made money off that PS3, and that's all they care about.


    Kinda stupid, if you ask me.

    I took it more as them slapping the fanboys waiting in line in the face because they had actually gotten one and then destroyed it- one less fanboy that could get a PS3 that day.

    Actually, Sony lost about $250, since they were counting on game sales to make up for the loss they are taking on each console sold.

    That's what I figured. I guess I still think it's foolish.

    And if you donate, how do you know all the money goes to that? Maybe they're pocketing some of it? Not the most reputable cause, anyway.
