One guy in the queue grabs the video card I think? Lucky for him (if it still works).

 

And yeah there will be Xbox One smashes too probably.

RatedRR just shoots ######. There is some other guy who melts ###### in a big microwave and then tries to sell his "art" on eBay. Idiotic wastes.

 

 

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.

 

Wow. That's incredible.

Was kind of surprised too, at first I figured trolling which wouldn't have surprised me, but the majority of them are flagged as verified purchases from Amazon. Yikes. I never buy hardware day one, that being one of the reasons why.

As far as the video goes.. "meh" as far as I'm concerned, as people mentioned it's nothing new, but looks like he succeeded in what he wanted to do, namely cause a lot of butthurt.

Old-school, not as epic as the 360/PS3 days.

 

It's so funny seeing people so hateful towards the guy, makes me wanna smash a few more. :D "OMFG  HE MUST BE AN XBOT,  Can't be SDF, MUST BE A PC GAMER!" - it's so awesome.

As others have said, this is nothing new. I think "smash my ipod" was the first one. There's even a video on the front page of a guy shooting his PS4 with a .50 cal rifle.

 

The thing that guy picked up looks like the power supply unit. There is no separate video card in a PS4.

Consoles don't have video cards. It's most likely the HDD enclosure judging by the shape.

 

Edit: actually not sure what the hell that piece is. Maybe just some PCB.

What pisses me off isn't the PS4 he destroyed.  I don't give a flyin' ###### about that.

 

What actually pisses me off in that video is that he's doing that in a parking garage, with plenty of cars around, and he's got parts flying everywhere.  At around 0:40, there's clearly a large chunk of it that goes hitting the gray mini-van and bouncing off of it.  Was that plastic?  Metal?  Did it leave any mark?

 

He can damage his property all he wants, but doing the same to other people's is crossing the line.

 

Also, did he leave everything on the ground for cars to run over and embed parts in their tires?

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

Bush are the same, probably worse, TV's lasting 3 months, D.A.B. radio not even 10 months, MP3 player a few months.

 

It's the chuck away society we are forced to live in.

 

I would be quite happy to pay £1200 for a T.V. if it will last 20 years rather than £400 and it lasting 3 months.

Pretty dumb. You can expect there to be videos like this with Xbox One as well.

There has been one for pretty much every console, especially got popular with the launch of the 360 onwards. Im more surprised at the volume of people in the thread who are shocked this happened  :rofl:
