    What a bunch of idiots. What motivates people to do things like this? To spend their hard-earned cash and make an effort (11 months in advance) just for the sole purpose of being jerks to others?


    EDIT: I had the wrong link in my clipboard, post editted

    I'm assuming praxis is posting the wrong link because his comment makes no sense in regards to that link. :)

    but yes fanboys are pathetic, unfortunetly they are everywhere and there is a lot of them on this forum too. Best bet is to just ignore them.

    Actually they never once show you the contents of the box.

    This is just a scam video, but still a stupid thing to do.

    They don't deserve much in life.

    But that was pretty... entertaining? only because it's such a rare expensive item with a ravid following. Didn't seem to be over in a flash like the SmashmyPS3 one.

    stupid

    they love the PS3 and just want to make sure a bunch of nerd are butthurt. They probably have that thing inside, playing it all the time and then when one of them was stoned they were like "dude we should make a google video of us destroying an empty box to see how many views we can get" and then they took their empty box, put a log in it, and then made the video you see here.

    The chainsaw would have been spitting plastic black shards everywhere, not to mention thick black smoke that forms when you burn plastic.

    NERDs dont get your panties in a bunch the PS3 is fine go get a life

    Of course theres no system in there. Soon as I heard "destory" and "PS3" in the same sentence I knew that if I didn't actually see the system destroyed at the end then it was a fake (which I saw to the very end after my post :) ).

    Unless they do post a destroyed PS3.

    The guy laughing uncontrolably made me think it was real. It seemed to be a sort of "I can't believe we're breaking this" sort of laugh.

    I read the title of this thread I can't help but think of The Bridge on the River Kwai where the fanboy is put on cooling down Saito's hut... Now that was one pathetic fanboy! :p

    People have way too much disposable income and time on their hands. Good advert for PS3, though! :) All that brain energy devoted to crushing the competition.

    I dunno who was more annoying the guy being filmed or the camera man....

    I found it ironic that he said the PS3 was overpriced when he bought one for himself.....

    But I agree -- I think they took it out of the box and it's inside the guys house

    Wow they can cut an empty box in half very impressive :rolleyes:

    They can jest about buying an item that expensive and cutting it up yet they appear to live in a scout hut :)

    The most annoying thing about that whole episode is the guy's laugh.

    What gets me is that the guys on smashmyWii/PS3/Xbox/iPod (regardless of how stupid they are), look to be 15/16/17. These guys looked to be in their late twenties, perhaps thirties. No excuses, they're acting like kids. The guy behind the camera had THE MOST ANNOYING voice/laugh EVER. I want to kill him.

    There was obviously no system in there. You'd have to be very, very dim to actually fall for that one.

    Nonetheless, if playing video games and all the petty rivalries that go with it really means that much to them, then they do need some serious help.

    I noticed that they never opened the box, but regardless, the people are still a bunch of pathetic jerks, spending their free time trying to irritate fans of the other system. Even though I'm NOT a fanboy of the other system I still shake my head. Not to mention the cameraguy's obnoxious laugh.

    Actually, the smashmy[insertproducthere] guys I can respect a little (a little); they're not doing it to be jerks, they're actually probably making a bunch of money off of advertising and press, and they always get more donations than the cost of the system.

    Smart way to make money.

    As for the guy behind the camera...don't get me started.

    "Alright PS3, time to make your...uh, meet your maker!"

    That was just lame, they obviously didn't have one in the box. I prefer the orgininal video the OP had with the PS3 vs WII chick ;)
