    Thats oooooold
    they were doing that back when the x360 was released
    it had a much bigger affect though because it was done in front of the ques who preordered them from way before

    Yeah, that's uber old. They've smashed everything. The only thing it does is hurt the people who've been waiting in line for days. What a waste.

    Yeah i gott admit that had impact.

    I enjoyed watching that vid.


    Another console smash vid i've enjoyed is a psp one where they drag it along on the back of a scooter or some vehicle, light firecrackerts inside it etc.
    That one is hilarious.

    Well, it becomes a way for those guys to make money [​IMG] They get donations to buy a smashing item, and pocket the surplus [​IMG]

    They suck at sledgehammering. And people donate money so they have nothing to lose by smashing whatever. (Well making money by just sitting outside of some retail store, pretty easy money I have to say)

    I dare them to smash limited edition Canadian themed PS3, there are only 3 of them, and the chance of at least one of them auctioning it times the chance of these smash guys raising enough money to win the auction times the chance of these guys actually bid with all that money instead of running away equals near zero.

    Dude if they can shoot that vid next smashmy**** video might be one of their house by angry Canadian Sony fanboy (crossing border seems to be no big deal)

    No it's not alright...Wii, PS3, anything. One thing I've always wondered is why no one ever tries to kick one of these guys asses, or at the least steal the unit thrown to the ground after that first drop (might still work...)

    Had I been dumb enough to be someone having to stand in line like that for a unit to have some douchebag come out of a store and do that in front of me...me standing there hoping I make the cut of X units in the store I'd woop his fucking ass.

    Yes I know the video is old but they still piss me off everytime I see them. Even if it is done for charity, great! Just don't do it in front of a bunch of people waiting, hoping to get one of their own as some cruel joke.

    Well it's not funny. Take it elsewhere and smash it. I know it's your property to do so with as you wish, but it's not bright in front of a crowd of which likely no one will ID you as the guy that broke the console busters face in on principle alone.

    There was a PS2 one and PSP one when they were released. The PS2 one looked like some guys in an office of some kind and the PSP one was some Japanese kids on the side of a highway.

    Either way, kinda dumb and pointless. Shock value is null.

    Unless they pull a profit on the donations, I don't really see the point. It had also better be quite a profit. Personally, I'd rather just sell it on eBay.

    Well, good thing violence is heavily punished in America, in some other country those guys could get nearly killed.
