For those of you who are not aware, there is a video going around You Tube of a kid who jsut got a PS4 who smashed it, apparently he was paid by Microsoft to do this. The video for the one I saw is as follow:

Wow when there are some people who can't buy these due to financial restrictions or because they have sold out and they go and do this.  Paid by MS or not, this is still really douchy. Where did you see he was paid by MS?

Are you fucking kidding me!? Why the hell would you do that at all. Paid or not! If MIcrosoft did, we will find out. Hopefully not. I still have respect for MS. I have 5 other people living with me. (my parents, my wife and my 2 kids and my mom is disabled) Im the only one working at the moment. I can't get mine til the beginning of the year. I think Joe needs to say something about this. Very disappointed about this situation.

I think this is just normal traditional thing to do with every sought after new electronic product released. I remember when the PS3 launched and there was a video of a guy that after receiving his launch  system, proceeded to smash it in front of the rest of the people waiting in line. Same thing happened when the second iPhone adaptation was released a few years back. It's just a publicity stunt. Funny, but just something to get peoples feathers in a twist.

I think the real issue his is people saying that "MS paid him to smash his PS4", not the fact he's smashing one.

 

And, of course they never.

Happened alot at last release to.

People started "kickstarters" for destroying Xboxes and PS3s on release, it is kindof a fun thing.

You pay a dollar or whatnot and then you get to see hundreds of peoples sad faces and fanboys rage on forums :D

Smokers spend around(hardcore spend alot more) 3000$ yearly, do you go knocking them fools out on the street aswell.. because you could have used THEIR money better :D

heh

 

theres definitly a difference between smashing a sweet console at launch where not even everyone will be able to get one (i nearly had the moneys to buy 1 during the preorders but when i was going to preorder one, i got told the preorders were disabled now at Sony's demand, we all know why)

 

and because of this im gonna miss Destiny's beta (i preordered it)

the only bright side is im likely to get a bug-less PS4 and still going to play Destiny, it royally pisses the shit out of me :V

 

people smoking just ruins their body, if they would buy a cigarette pack and just stomp the whole pack on the ground when theres a cigarette shortage (lets assume i wanted to smoke some too) id definitly punch him too

 

its a matter of public behavior and community respect

these morons smashing the consoles like that are definitly doing something good making the fanboys raging but also a very bad thing that outshadows the good action completly

Seriously, this kid got issues. It's not like he has any reason other than wanting to be cool and getting attention. "Look losers, I already have the thing you all want so badly, but because I'm badass I'm going to destroy it in front of your eyes" - Could you be any more of a scumbag? 

I wouldn't think that MS paid him though.. I mean, why would they?

MS did not pay anyone to break PS4 consoles. Let us get that fact straight. It would be suicide for MS to do this... so no they did not pay anyone to publicly destroy a competitor's console.

.

If someone really hated Sony or hated the PS4, they STILL would not pay 400 USD up front to destroy something. Nobody would do this unless they had something substantial to gain. No, they most likely gained something, to compensate for the money lost. Either it was not their money or their console (picking it up for a mate) and their mate screwed them over (people have done far worse when *their* girlfriend was *stolen* by their mate) so most likely they have something to gain by doing this.

This is messed up, he spent all of this money and time at the store just to do this? What a disgrace towards himself. He shouldn't even be allowed to hold a Playstation.

Fanboys dont realize they are hurting gaming. Innovation and competition makes for better games and consoles.
