Reminds me of the "will it blend" craze from a couple of years ago. Madness.

I will never purchase another Sony product again after going through so many faulty Walkmans, televisions and consoles over the years but if one was given to me I would never do that.  That is just crazy.  :o

I've always had fantastic luck with Sony products. Walkmans were junk from day one anyway! :x

 

Have a Sony stereo right here in my office and Sony radios in both my vehicles, plus a Sony boombox upstairs.

 

That dude that is smashing his new PS4 is simply a spoiled pickle!!

 

Edit:

After watching video, I'd have to call him something worse than that, actually!!

Sony's PS4 launch is going terrible! So many failures already, just look at the Amazon reviews and they're all legit buyers too.

It's not looking good for PS4 now.

Not me unfortunately.  I went through Walkmans, a few televisions and multiple PlayStation consoles.  The only Sony product I still own is my last PS which is out in the garage hooked up to a television (not Sony) and it only works if I flip it over or put it on its side.  Shame really because I used to like the Sony PS but I will never again purchase another product they offer.

Ouch, they may have a major problem on their hands.  Lets hope not because even though I despise Sony products all competition is good for the market imo and Microsoft still has their launch to deal with soon.

I honestly don't understand comments like these.

 

You can just as easily say:  It's people like this that make me sick, people can't even afford clothes and food and people are spending money to buy things just to make themselves happy.

 

And maybe that's the point this person is trying to make.  Why spend $500 on a video game console for your own pleasure?  Take those $500 and donate them to your local food pantry or GoodWill.

 

It's OK to waste money on a PS4 or XBoxOne as long as it's used how you see fit; is that how it is?

 

He took HIS money and did what he wanted with HIS PS4.  Was it to prove a point?  Who knows?

Nothing new, internet fad from 8 years ago. That site used donations to buy the consoles too IIRC.
