Someone bought a new Playstation 4 gaming console Friday morning, but didn't have it for long. Bakersfield Police said the owner was robbed at gunpoint -- with what turned out to be a replica gun -- at about 12:25 a.m. at Valley Plaza.
Not sure this belongs here. The only thing connecting this story with gaming is the console.
PS4 "Getting Mugged Awaits" Just read this story on another site and it looks like the Thieves were caught. YEAH and hopefully the kid gets his PS4 back. This has happened with every PS release. Sad but true!
Only to get home and discover he has one of those foxconn sabotage ones.
I just LOVE how you made this story from a dude gettin robbed to a console war. Nice work. Maturity at its finest.
Thank you? Also, it was a joke
Yup your right and I heard when PS3 launch someone got shot in line.
I hope the thief gets what he deserves in prison for robbing an innocent dude for his hard earned ps4 like that. What a cunt.
Suspected thieves and actual proof of who it was are two different things. The guy was robbed by one guy, the police arrested two guys. They didn't both commit the crime. "YEAH and hopefully the kid gets his PS4 back." I can't remember the exact phrasing but cops once told me that they keep stolen objects as evidence till trial or some bs like that so he might still be out of luck for a while.
wow that's just messed up
happens with every midnight launch of anything popular ever, even at midnight launches for game like call of duty. same thing in the uk except instead of guns its knifes
This is why I ordered mine for delivery. People these days what if the person they robbed had a weapon on him and decided to use it to protect himslf,lose your life over s video game SMH
What if the postman is a bit annoyed that he missed his chance to pre-order one? A few words from said postman son could result in a failed delivery for a certain customer. No names though. jk. But yeah, I pre-order for delivery, as I dont want to go through the hassle of going to stores, and dealing with other potential issues.
better than a real gun, or a murder... hmmm *looks for his airsoft gun*
Damn scum. people earn their money to get a console jacked by awful excuses for humans. Hope the thief gets his due, and the owner gets their PS4 back or something to alleviate the situation.
it's sad that i was expecting this. humanity has really gone down the drain
It took someone being robbed at fake gunpoint for their new PS4 to realize that?
I blame Jerry Springer.
This is why if you can always go with a group of people.
This is why i bring a hamster everywhere i go.
Go for the eyes.
We all knew something like this was going to happen... USA should ban all types of guns even those replicas... Oh wait... Lets just hope hes cault and the victim takes action!
hope it bricks on him, i remember ps3 launch someone was shot over a ps3.
That bastard! Put him in prison!
