It burst into flames and killed my daughter, November 19, 2006

 

Reviewer: Brian (Dallas, TX) - See all my reviews

 

How could Sony betray me like this?!? I waited in line for three months--yes, I started the very first line for the PS3 way before anyone else. I endured the elements, the snide comments, and unemployment (I was fired from my job after the first week) because I wanted to be the very first person to play what I imagined would be the salvation to all my dearest dreams. Rumor had it that playing a videogame on the PS3 would be like injecting heroin directly into your eyeball. I believed the hype and worshipped Sony as my god.

 

Finally, with nearly every credit card maxed out and two debt consolidation plans under my belt, the great day arrived and I fought my way into the store to get my hands on this wonder console. Leaving the store I did a little victory dance and then drove up and down the parking lot taunting those who did not get a PS3. Then it was off to home to play this little beauty.

 

I hooked everything up while my wife and children watched and applauded at my direction. It was time to play the first game! After two hours I noticed that waves of heat were pouring off the console, so I told my daughter to hold it up in the air in front of a fan while I continued playing, waiting for the opiate-like ecstacy that was soon to overwhelm me after I shot to death another video game enemy. Things went find for awhile; an hour later the box began whistling and my daughter complained that it was getting too hot to hold. I figured this was just what they called "burning in" and continued playing.

 

Then, at the four hour mark, my daughter began complaining of blisters and within fifteen minutes the entire console burst into flames, the plastic casing scorching and bubbling as I rushed to complete the level. But I was too late, and my precious daughter burned to death. Racked with sadness at not being able to save my game, I immediately called my lawyer to review my options for a massive lawsuit.

 

I am sure we all expected a few "bugs" and "glitches" and "inconveniences", but that does not excuse Sony for selling what appears to be a blazing DEATH TRAP.

 

Caveat emptor!

Scotter was viewing the PS3 game system thing and was puzzled by this comment. He could be seriously mentally disordered though.

:Hmm:

 

Human stupidity has a tendency of reaching some really far-out and ridiculous levels. If one is to believe this story, (s)he may wish to ponder the fine line between stupidity and gullibility.

I'm willing to believe many things where it's about human stupidity... but this is too far-out for me.

This sounds like BS to me. That daughter would of had to have had extreme pain tollerance to hold the game system while her hands blistered.

 

It sounds like someone is trying to say how addicting it is in an extreme way. Wrecked with sadness at not being able to save his game instead of being sad over the death of his daughter?? Bullshit I say!

 

Yes, after reading the comments about his reviews, I would say for sure this is his way (Brian) of trying to be funny. Some people are warped!

Truth can be stranger than fiction. But this has clearly been written as a humurous narrative. As a social commentary I give it an 8 out of 10.

Sounds like a spoof to me.

If this were a real event, I would tend to think that the reviewer's lawyer would have put his/her foot down to posting this sort of stuff online.

 

Not to mention..... Where are the news stories? Surely this would make some headlines.

Also, if this were true, then the reviewer is a complete and total idiot for trying to finish the level when his daughter was in distress.

I'm shocked that it's even up for discussion as to whether this is a joke or not.

 

Anyway, it's hilarious. :HaHa:

It's good for a giggle, but some people really do have too much time on their hands :HaHa:

He's got one sick imagination. I wonder if there are real losers that do lose their jobs in order to get a PS3 though. It's quite possible.
