Hardcore Gamer: He made sure he turned it on so he could watch the light fade from its eyes as it died a slow painful death. The PS4 starts smoking pretty early on, but if you wait a couple more minutes you can see the console burst into flames.
I cant watch vid....its like a snuff film. redrum, redrum, redrum, REDRUM!
Yeah, it's honestly pretty disturbing.
this Guy is pretty disturbing...
Rich people these days...
Whats wrong with these people, why are things like this happening...
How much for just the Eyeball toad? Oh boy I can't wait till next weeks FLAIMBAIT article! PS4 vs. XB1 which one last longer in the Microwave.
I wonder if you microwave them together long enough, then smush them into each other, if it will form a super console. All hail the PX4One!
I have heard this is the only way to make the PS4 over heat :)
amazon says the opposite.
No, no a crazy person plays their PS4 hours and hours on end none stop every day. A stupid person "Microwaves PS4 And Is Trying to Sell It For $11000" there's a difference.
too many stupid people on this planet no point in watching the dumb things they do.
So, for $400 I can buy a PS4 and destroy it or I can pay $11,000 to have a professional do it. Hm, decisions decisions...
But he's an "artist." You're just a commentor on N4G!
im a artist....and yeah its a form of art...but 11,000 bones for something that took 0 skill, 0 technique, 5 min, and 100% waste is disrespectful to the real artists out there.
Jack Tretton: "Thank you, come again!"
Why did i just read that in Apu's voice??xD
Sounds like somebody put this guy's head in a microwave when he was younger.
Shouldda kept it in there a few minutes longer.
Whoever did this is special, very, very special.
Yeah definitely a passenger on the short yellow bus
He does this with every console and handheld that releases. He's a fool with too much time and money, and a microwave.
Except he makes enough money to buy another couple PS4s with the views from the video...
To be fair though, the exterior and the controller were holding up pretty well right up until it caught on fire.
If you ever wonder how much money Youtube stars make, just realize they can literally waste 400 dollars like its nothing....
you got to spend money to make money after all lol.
These are the kind of people clicking 1 star on Amazon.
And it's articles like this that give these attention seeking "artists" the publicity they're after. If people will just ignore these assholes then maybe they'll go away.
I wonder if he is going to try to get a replacement unit. I know I would.
He's probably loaded and could get another one easily.
I remember someone doing this same thing with a PS3 back at its launch.
I thought Steve-O was the definition of Don't try this at home.
Message from SONY Thanks for the 400$
Some people just want to watch the world burn......
This really solve the console war... PS4... Xbone... WiiU... No Microwave smoked then all!!! ^^
*calls Sony* "It overheated."
Remember when the PS3 was destroyed with a sledgehammer? I do. I kept thinking about the absurdity of the act. How can one stand in line with half a month's earnings just to take it out and destroy it? The only conclusions were either the person had no value for money or the attention was worth the money wasted. In either case they had no value in what they were destroying. In the case of this PS4 he purchased a warranty from the store. These "no questions asked" policies will be honored by the store he bought it from. Please note he wore gloves at the beginning of the video to eliminate any evidence of his tampering. Also please note the ridiculous beard he grew to help mask his identity. Also note how careful he was removing the box security seal (@34 seconds). Why? He will attempt to put the PS4 back into the box and replace the security seal. If he fails he can still fall back on the extended warranty policy. In short this guy is an idiot for ruining a perfectly good microwave.
/Parents must be so proud of what they've raised. Complete idiot
Ha, his must've been defective! You know I don't think Sony covers this under warranty lol... You could always try I guess.
SORRY HES AN IDIOT!
I'm a xbox fan but even I see this guy is a total wanker people like him shouldn't be given the attention they are looking for.
The band ALL sums it all up pretty good with this song: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Not gonna watch :P I hate stuff like this. So pointless, just like that stupid video with that guy crushing his new PS4.
Just another ad-revenue get-rich-quick scheme... That and pure flamebait...
Anyone else thinking what a wanker? Lol All these people with busted consoles and he cooks one!! What is the world coming to?
I really hope somebody doesn't actually pay for this. This isn't art, this is attention grabbing.
He could have donated this to a children's hospital or something, but no, he has to microwave it. I've really lost faith in humanity now...
I would like to see his head inside that microwave.
Oh yeah, He sold it for $11,151...
People are getting so worked up over what one man does with his own purchase.
Another attention seeking youtube video. Yawn!!!
Crazy people, crazy people everywhere.
What a f*cking bellend! What is the point in that??
Shame, some poor kid probably wants One for Xmas and this retard destroys it.
Can't wait to order my melty ps4. This guy is a genius!
One word. PRICK.
isn't capitalism a great way of life.. children starve, millions die in war, and this guy gets to nuke a ps4 while all us wage slaves cry.. disgusting, evil capitalism..
