    Proof the PS3 radiates such raw evil that it will corrupt the very soul of even the finest human being...

    Not to start a fanboy argument, but for something supposedly so uber-uber-uber desirable, I've found relatively few people who are actually desiring it.

    Good to see it was all resolved properly at least.

    There are a lot of people who hate on things that are uber popular. There plenty of people who have irrational hate for ipods for example, even having never owned one. At anyrate the PS3 seems to be sold out almost everywhere, stores get them in they sell out that day. I suppose what that means is up to debate.

    Of course when a store only gets 2, it's not that difficult to sell out. And many people who buy them are selling them. How many people are actually playing the PS3? I have 2 sitting in the spare bedroom waiting to sell if ebay prices go back up for Christmas, ready to return to the store if they don't. There won't be any games worth having until March or April, so the only thing it's really good for right now is a Blu-Ray player.

    Get over yourself. The PS3 is a desirable object, even if you're just a Nintendo fanboy. That means people will do whatever they can to either 1) obtain one for personal use, or 2) obtain one to sell at a much higher value.

    Hey, dont lump me up as a fanboy that fast. I love my PS1 and PS2, I probably played both more than my N64 or Gamecube. PS3 just doesn't impress me, for the higher price all it seems to do any different is play prettier games.

    Besides, I do tell these things called jokes from time to time... Fact is I'll probably get a PS3 once there's some good games out and the price gets cut a couple times.

    Yeah, it's popular to hate on something a lot of others like, but it's not like Sony hasn't given actual reasons to hate on it and them. (Real time weapon change) Still, I don't hate it just for the sake of it. I'm sure once it's a affordable price in a few years I'll buy one. Thankfully I'm not a video game junky so I can afford to wait. I don't have a Wii either, but that's only because I can't find one of the damn things.

    Ignoring the PS3 love/hate...the materialism and possible police corruption here is disturbing.

    "911, how may I take your call"

    " Help me there's a burglar trying to break in!!"

    "We're sorry, all our officers are waiting in line for their PS3's"

    "WHAT?!"

    Two people have been fired for obeying the police. That's not a proper resolution.

    They have every right to fire anyone who contributed to the fraud.

    Wait, it's popular to not like something because it's popular?

    That doesn't even seem possible.

    :rolleyes2  Most cops are pretty damn awesome and have a crap load of patience considering they're out there putting their lives on the line every day while being hated for making people actually obey the law. But just keep raging against the machine there, buddy.

    In regards to the story, I cannot stand cops like this, because it's used to justify trashing all cops.

    It's possible, and it happens all the time.
