Here in Wisconsin, this Wal-Mart only had ten PS3's. And 150 people waiting outside. So the idiot manager puts ten chairs out, on a parking lot, and says, "Whoever can sit down in one of these chairs gets a PS3." He may as well have said, "Five people in the hospital and one in critical condition, please."

Correction guys, he didn't die. He's in the hospital in critical condition.

Either way. Same story. Two whackjobs and a guy clearly too attached to the prospect of a PS3 for his own good.

The english language should shoot you in self-defense.

Countdown to this story being exaggerated and being used to "prove" that video games cause violence in 3....2.....

With some guy pointing a gun at me? Listen friend, I make only about $200 per month in my miserable part-time high school job, but if someone is pointing a gun at me, three months pay suddenly would become far less important.

He probably could have bought about 15 PS3s for what the medical bill is costing him... "critical condition" is probably pretty expensive to treat. ;)

i hope this kids family sues Sony.



Why sony??????

They should sue the guy that shot him!!!!!

The guy was probably just after the money for drink or drugs.....$500-$600 - just cause they were waiting on a ps3 does'nt mean you sue sony.

****OFF TOPIC RANT AHEAD****
This is just one more reason why it is legal in most US states for honest citizens to carry concealed weapons! To bad more people do not because if a crook (read: soleless mucus brained coward) thinks for a minute that several of the people in that line were armed.... It would have been a quiet day with many getting their overpriced game and that would have been the only story to tell.

**** RANT OFF****

To bad for the victim and I hope he gets well. The one the lawyers will go after is always the one with the deepest pockets which is rarely if ever the crook. WallMart will get sued for failing to provide a safe area in which to wait and you will all be paying more for your games et al. Since as we all know it is the general public that foots the bill in the end...
