    I bet he was completely expecting a big reaction from the line. Most of them just giggled and thought. "I hope that was worth $400 dumb ass."

    Wasn't as funny as the 360 and PS3 videos were, years ago. Video quality has definitely improved though.

    Looks like nobody cared. And what's sad is he waited a very long time to do that.

    some kids did that after waiting in line for the original iPad. of course they bought an iPad they didn't smash to keep. some people think they're demonstrating anti-consumerism by pulling pranks like this. that's like demonstrating against hunger in developing nations by throwing away uneaten fresh food in wealthy nations. anyway, i think most of these people lack any philosophical convictions. it's just a dumb stunt.

    Wow. I'll never get why people do this with tech. As a tech enthusiast, I cannot even think of why anyone would do it. Such a waste.

    Just give it to me..

    You remember around the turn of the century, during the dot-com bubble, right before it burst? There was a kind of pseudo-Luddite, anti-high-tech movement. Not a giant social phenomenon or anything but there was a bunch of computer smashing and painting of slogans on concrete retaining walls. Sun Microsystems even capitalized on it with some bait slogans you'd walk by and think were anti-tech and then a couple weeks later they'd add the Sun advertising message. Well, maybe you don't remember. My experience with Kiwis is they do stupid things at a much lesser rate than the rest of us. But, anyway, it was a thing, sincere if misdirected. I think some younger people and trendy soi-disant "activists" have over the past few years adopted the medium of that movement but not the message. So you get people who line up and buy two new pieces of tech while it's still in short supply and high demand, and they make a show of smashing one of the devices. The other they take home and love and hug and use daily like everyone else.

    This guy probably ordered his for-keeps PS4 from Amazon back in June and then stood in line to buy an in-stock unit or pick up a second preorder, did his little fake social consciousness thing, then went home and waited by the door all day for the delivery guy to turn up with the console he'll keep.

    I have smashed the PS3 20 gb fat model in the same way in my living room in 2008. This man was doing it in front of a crowd and he was obviously doing it to grab attention, he might not have been actually angry. But i got indignant of the ps3 when it was constantly resetting itself in the middle of a game since few days. I could've plugged it off and sent it for repair but i lost my cool one day and shred the turd to pieces. I had bought it brand new for 600 usd in 2006.

    Call me crazy but when my 360 died out of warranty with a graphics card failure and MS refused to fix it under the extended warranty because it was missing one lighted segment of the RROD -- they later added that one's fail code to the extended warranty -- I sold the whole works to Gamestop, and even broken I got $250. I decided to stick with my PS3 until MS worked out the hardware problems. Then I soon wound up with a free press unit -- which did eventually, after years, RROD, too -- and didn't actually have to buy a replacement 360 for a long time. By then they worked.

    Happens every console release. Some people looking to shock viewers smash one to varied results. The guys that got a launch $600 PS3 and then smashed it in front of the rest in line? All his buddies thought it was hilarious and it made its rounds but was almost unanimously given the "what a d-bag" treatment. Same for the guy that tossed a 360 out of his window supposedly hours after buying it and it RROD. SO stupid.
