I just stumbled over this site: SmashMyXbox.com.

The Plan
From the creators of SmashMyiPod.com, we bring you, SmashMyXbox.com!
After we collect $430 in donations, we will take that money to a local unspecified retailer, which opens at 12am on the launch date. We will purchase the Xbox 360, and destroy it in front of the other Xbox fanboys who are already waiting in line. We will try to be at the very front of the line. The whole thing will be shot on film, and displayed on this site. This is only a social experiment, for the entertainment of the donors, and visitors of this site.

Have a look at the video, haven't laughed like that in ages.

Yeah, i saw a vid where they took an EMPTY xbox360 BOX, drove in a car in front of the line of waiting fans, and threw it out the window......... followed by a rather intense baseball-bat flury........ It was rather funny.

I must say, that was really funny.

It sucks because it was a brand new console and stuff, but its still funny too see people's responses. Probably more funny in my case because (not to be 'fanboy'ish) I wouldn't want an xbox360 anyway. Plus, I doubt I would get THAT angry to see a ps3 be deestroyed like that. Obviously, I'd be thinking "that was kind of a waste" but I doubt it would anger me as much as their hate mail was. Hey, wasn't that in Canada? If so, why was all the hate mail "F U America"?

in all, VERY FUNNY

In terms of destroying something brand new for no reason, yea. However, seeing their hatemail especially is what makes it funny.

Lol, it's an attack on all those people that take stuff like this seriously. If you get pissed off over someone destroying an electronic gaming console, you should probably focus on getting some more activity in your life....

lol the hate mail totally proves that, who would call somebody a 'noob' and a 'geek' for smashing an electronic gaming system? stupid people.

*edit* doesn't that mean that they don't care? but then again, many people's response to somebody different or plays differently from them is "at least I have a life" and "You are a noob". so goes the gaming life lol, which is why I strive to NOT be like idiots of the internet.

Something else i thought of..... The people getting all pissy really have no reason to be. The guys that built that site clearly listed their steps, and that included showing up freakin early to grab some of the earlier spots in the line. So, they wait and wait, then pay the proper amount of money to get their system, then destroy it. Well, they got it fairly, so why shouldn't they be able to do what they want to it?

Now, if the people of the site cut in line, got a discount, or got one for free for a promotion, i can sorta see why people would be pissed off. But if the people that really wanted one showed up before the destroyers, they wouldn't have had to worry about it. It all comes down to "who wants it more". You can't flame the people that destroy it for "stealing your console" if you don't show up before them.....

lol good point. Absolutly no reason to be pissed off, it was their money through donatinos, meaning that many people wanted to see this happen. Gotta love it.

OMG that was too funny....and the looks on the faces of the bystanders....PRICELESS!!!!!
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
