What was the point? They still gave money to the company just to break their investment?

Someone didn't do too well in economics.

Hippies suck when symbolism is concerned.

I really wish someone tackled that guy and took the sledghammer to HIS head. I mean come on, due to not enough blue ray chips there was already a bit of a shortage of PS3s and he goes off and tears one apart.

Wii, eh. Bad name for a console anyway Razz

Agreed.

Besides, it wasn't their money. Other people gave them money to do this. The only thing they wasted was their time, having to wait in line to get these consoles. But I'm sure it was worth it, when they got to see the looks on these kids' faces, the fanboys who wanted a PS3 or Wii so bad they could taste it, as if it were some sort of holy grail.

The whole thing strikes me as a simple "fuck you" to consumerism/materialism. But, I could just be reading way too much into it.

Smashing things is cool. Not to mention fun.

It was amusing but stupid. That money could've went to a charity or something.. Somebody commented saying that, they're right!
