Killzone 2 Prompts Local AV Club to Burn Xboxs

Killzone 2's butterfly effect is now felt among fanboys but sometimes the effect could be scary

"While the bonfire may seem like a flash in the pan for the Wheat Ridge High AV Club, they aren't ready to relinquish their fifteen minutes of fame just yet. Plans to storm the local Best Buy, a popular nationwide consumer electronics store, and take hammers to any remaining 360s and Microsoft demo kiosks were announced by the club in an open letter released to news outlets today."

Wow... is this real?

If it is.. just wtf?

meepmoopmeep3163d ago

not hard, all they did was turn the 360's on.

:)

GrieverSoul3163d ago

First, the X360 were already dead! RROD! ;)
Second, this article is hilarious! The quotes are phenomenal! The first guy talks like Yoda and the second guy is like a character from Dude, where´s my car?!
Third, this is getting out of hand! Killzone should not be released because it will cause the third world war!

/end of sarcasm/

meepmoopmeep3163d ago

yeah, this is extreme, lol.

i wonder who these guys are on N4G, lulz

JsonHenry3163d ago

Too bad, As of yesterday (while playing the RE5 demo) my 2nd 360 bit the dust for no apparent reason. I could have given them an extra one to put on the fire.

Still not sure whether to trade my PS3 or Wii in to get another one yet or not.

chrisnick3163d ago

ur compromise makes no sense.....it broke for no reason so u'll buy another one?.....there u go ppl, this is how ms gets those extra 5-10 million sales. Geniuses like this.

Nineball21123163d ago

Yeah, yeah, yeah...

That comment wasn't funny yesterday and it hasn't gotten any better today.

Your trolling needs work.

Gray23163d ago

I hope you guys realize this article is a joke...just look at some of the other stuff on here "playing iphone games increases chances of opposite sex ignoring you" (we all know the opposite sex digs iphone games)...but yeah chill guys not a real article, its a photoshopped picture anyway and totally false quotes. and an extra squad car in front of linens and things? really?

lalalala3163d ago

Fake OR these guys are extreme dumbasses, if they hate MS so much, they shouldn;t have gone and bought 24 Xbox 360s, they just gave MS some more fuel for their NPD figures. Although I wonder if they can claim it back

Dread3163d ago

if this would have been an article about 360 fanboys burning playstations everyone here would have been outraged (including me)

but since they are burning 360 then everyone here joins in the laughs and actually agree with this behavior.

you are all fanboys! your responses thus far confirm this.

I feel that this is not even news, no real gamer should condone this behavior.

peace

prunchess3163d ago

No group of people could be that pathetic! This doesn't even rate as a story. What fools approved it?

Gray23163d ago

How many times must I say this? Its a J O K E. Not a real story, its supposed to be humorous. lighten up folks

whoelse3163d ago

Obviously fake. But funny.

thegood333163d ago

That's funny.
Desperate, but funny.

The xbox fanboy's were gonna try the same thing but they are all too busy playing fable gears and LFD...

Helghast Slayer3163d ago

That's extreme man WOW! These people have gone nuts for killzone2. Well as long as people relies that killzone2 is the pinnacle of NEXT GEN FPS's then that's all good. The dark side just seems too bada$$ i guess lol.

FrankenLife3163d ago

@ 1.10

Is that you, Anonymous?

FarEastOrient3163d ago

They should've burn the three Xbox 360s I have, I would give it to them for free... None of them work anyway, what a way to impress your media when the systems that are sold to them don't work anyway.

ThanatosDMC3162d ago

HAHAHAH!!! That was great! Bubbles for everybody!

IcarusOne3162d ago

This is a joke...

OR

These people seriously need to get girlfriends...

BLuKhaos3162d ago

My people. Sons and daughters of PlayStation.

For many years, we have been a broken nation. Shunt, oppressed, and conquered by those we sought to escape. 10 years ago, I asked for time, and that time was granted by you. You, the strength in my arm, the holders of my dreams.

Our forefathers embarked on the greatest exodus in the history of all mankind. An exodus for freedom. PlayStation became that freedom. Our new world changed our bodies. At first, it weakened us, but in fact, we were growing... stronger.

In the time you have given me, I have rebuilt our nation, I have rebuilt our strength, and I have rebuilt our pride! Our enemies at home have been reeducated. We have given them new insights into our cause. On this day, we stand united once more. On this day, those driven to divide us will hear our verse. On this day, we shall act as one, and we shall be ignored NO MORE!

Defenders of the PlayStation dream, NOW IS OUR TIME!

Obviously fake. No good reporter site would include the "likes" in the quote.

Wheat Ridge High AV Club. So that's where they hang out when they aren't busy trolling N4G? ;)

Sarcasm3163d ago

A giraffe knows this article is fake. Then again, you wish it's true so you can poke fun at PS3 fans.

*looks at you in disgust*

dragunrising3163d ago

@ Sarcasm- aren't you assuming things when you say the article is fake. It could be, but then again people do even more dumb things like start wars and and blow themselves up with bombs in Iraq....just saying.

I don't think anyone should condone this behavior. Is it a political statement? No. Basically, a bunch of kids with money to burn...destroy their 360s. OK.

NickIni3163d ago

LOL.

Look at the site design, look at the picture read the article and then read the twitter post along the side:

It's not dumb to the people who have to witness their homeland being invaded for no reason but to perpetuate the Zionist agenda.

They could just have had a sale on e-bay...

Hope for them they will have the money to buy killzone 2

dylantalon3163d ago (Edited 3163d ago )

Killzone 2 is the best game technologically and graphically on a console.PS3 IS THE FUTURE, AND THE FUTURE IS PS3.

ps. the talon stands for talented

i cant believe people disagree with me about killzone 2 being the best game graphically and technologically on a console. can these people who disagree with me tell me games that are better graphically and technologically that is on a console? and please dont lie to yourself by even uttering some xbox 360 games,lol, you would be embarrassing yourself.

GrieverSoul3163d ago

Are you one of them?
The AV Club?

; )

InMyOpinion3163d ago

Resident Evil 5 looks much better, and it's multiplat.

ps. the Jenzo stands for Jenzo...

Pennywise3163d ago

LOL @ Jenzo. Come on man....

ReconHope3163d ago

nothing comes close to killzone when in actual motion not still frames. nobody is pausing their game in real life and taking screenshots.

InMyOpinion3163d ago (Edited 3163d ago )

I'm only joking. I was waiting to see what dylantalon would say. Killzone 2 is the best looking game this gen on any console.

Funny thing, I just got this pm from POGfinder.

"New Message:
26 minutes ago | By: POGfinder | Block
motherf*cker ur eyeballs will be plucked out
RE5 looks like a wii game vs KZ2

JENZO is a bastard

a bastard is always a bastard"

Not hard to draw the conclusion that dylantalon = POGfinder

NickIni3163d ago

It shocks me how much anger and hatred some fanboys have for the opposition.
