    I don't get seriously angry much but stuff like this winds me up. Most wasteful thing I've ever seen attention whores do.

    Awesomeness, proves once again how weak modern day consumer electronics are, it was broken after being microwaved for 5 seconds.

    And for people thinking this is a waste: there will always be more 3ds'es that will be made and the guy paid for it, so he can do whatever he wants with it. Heck if you disagree, then in a sense you're no better than sony. Guy himself who microwaved it was irritating though....

    What the fuck does sony have to do with anything?

    The guy is a dick. He buys a system that's facing shortages just to melt it.
    Has he the right to do it? He does. But it doesn't make it less of a dick.

    It microwaves, but will it blend? That is the question.

    will the microwave with the 3ds inside it blend?
    will the guy who microwaved the 3ds blend while inside a microwave with a 3ds inside it?
    will this cliffhanger blend?

    find out in the next episode of: [​IMG]

    I don't care about the DS itself, but it's a retarded waste of resources to destroy electronic equipment like that, not to mention very bad for the environment. Managing technology waste is difficult enough as it is, even without morons like this guy.

    The guy who did it is rich (He did Conan's Christmas set for crying out loud!), so blowing $250 on a 3DS just to microwave it is nothing. He did one for the iPad 2, and multiple other things.

    However, doing it just to be "famous" on YouTube is stupid, and his money should be put towards better things, especially if he's just blowing it all.

    If someone wants to waste $250 + whatever it costs to buy a new microwave since that probably killed it, that's their own stupidity so why give a fuck? I mean really if someone is stupid enough to spend that much money to microwave electronics lets hope the radiation that leaked from that microwave infirtilizes them...

    My first thought after watching was, "I hope a stray microwave hit him square in the balls".

    HAHA! That's awesome!

    The guy is a hero!

    I love it when people like him get under so many people's skins. Like the guy who bought the PS3/360/Wii on launch, went outside the store, and smashed it in front of everybody. It was great!

    First of all, Microwaves are non-ionizing. Sterilization would not happen. period.

    Second of all, this guy spent $250 of his own to do this. His choice.

    I would be a bit peeved if there were a shortage of units, but at this point, there is no such shortage.

    goodbye 3DS. I wanted Cosmo Black anyway.

    Omg the 3ds is built so badly it can't even handle being microwaved? I paid £200 for something built so poorly! [​IMG] What next you can't even run over it with a car? [​IMG]


    I remember the 360 one some guy following them "dude can I have your controllers" go away you begging scumbag!


    The guy probably made more money from people viewing the video than he spent on wasting the 3ds. He should take it back to the shop and say "I tried turning it on but I think it's broken, can I get a replacement please?"

    That's the one! In all honesty, I would have asked for the controllers too.
