I hate people

PUTNAM, Conn. (AP) -- Two armed thugs tried to rob of line of people waiting to buy the new Playstation 3 gaming console early Friday and shot one who refused to give up the money, authorities said.

The two confronted a "bunch of people who were in line" outside a Wal-Mart store shortly after 3 a.m. and demanded money, said Lt. J. Paul Vance, a spokesman for the state police. The new Sony consoles are selling for around $500 to $600.

"One of the patron's resisted. That patron was shot," Vance said.

He said the two gunmen fled, and the victim was taken to University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester. There was no immediate word on the victim's condition.



Vance said police were searching for the suspects.

Short supplies of the PS3 and strong demand led to lines of buyers, some waiting for days, outside stores across the country.

In Palmdale, Calif., authorities shut down a Super Wal-Mart after some shoppers got rowdy late Wednesday. In West Bend, Wis., a 19-year-old man was injured when he ran into a pole racing with 50 others for one of 10 spots outside a Wal-Mart.

In Lexington, Ky., police were investigating a drive-by shooting that hit four people with BB pellets outside a Best Buy store, causing minor injuries, according to WKYT, whose own reporter was hit as she interviewed buyers in line.

A Best Buy in Boston, aware it had only 140 of the consoles, got smart - its employees gave out tickets to the first 140 people in line so everyone could go home.

This would of never happened if the PS3 was only 50 dollars. The fact that the system is selling for 3000 shows that thugs want in on the action. :slap:

when you been in these boards as long as I have Seraph you'll find something to always be true. No matter what its about, its always a European to open their mouth to blame it on nationality. I never once seen it the other way around my 4-5 years about here. :crazy:

or it might explain where some smaller businesses (like family owned restaurants) shop. But hey I should probably just jump on the generalize everyone in a country based on a stereotype bandwagon! It's the cool thing to do.

I believe they call that the "barrel roll" maneuver. its when you say something stupid and then back lash comes for you. So you "do a barrel roll!" to express it was a joke a whole time. TeeHee!

Why is it Best Buy only that gives out vouchers? They did the same thing with the PS2. And for that PS3 selling on eBay for $9,000, they're super lucky, cause I saw some that were ending in 30 seconds that were only at $2,000

Wow, nothing like a discussion about how faulted we Americans are because, you know the logic, a couple of stupid people represent us as a nation. Yes, we were placing our national reputation upon these two souls and unfortunately we've now lost the the rest of the world's respect.

But you can sleep easy knowing that nobody in any other country has ever pulled a gun on somebody for something as stupid as this, right? Right.
