    That's rather good craftsmanship and a pretty cool story, as sneaky and evil as it was.

    Though, I have to wonder... with all the time and effort the guy put into this scam and considering what one would get for trade-in/cash on a PS2, I'm curious if the dude even broke even. XD

    Maybe he claimed at wal-mart that they had "bricked" on him.

    if you look at the original article at joystiq, you'll see the wooden PS2 is actually extremely pathetic. there are no buttons on it like the yahoo article states.

    the only time buttons appear are when they're showing pictures of user-modded ACTUAL PS2s, with flip-top lids.

    Return and burn: Fake 'PS2' systems retailers took for real - Joystiq

    see the five pics on the bottom? three are from the wooden PS2. and it doesnt look real at all. the only detail on it is one sticker. the first and third images are of a modded PS2 (which also shouldnt be allowed in a return)

    and then if you click the full gallery, you'll see a third PS2 that was hollowed out, stuffed with towels and weights.

    Yahoo just combined all three into one in their coverage.
