PS3 used to assault old man

Gamers are often bombarded with stories of gaming linked with violence, but rarely is a gaming console seen as the weapon itself. Reports suggest that a 66-year-old man was assaulted with a PlayStation 3 console in the early hours of this morning.

The elderly man was bashed over the head with the hefty console.

Police took three men into custody a few hours later.

A PlayStation 3 weighs approximately 5kg (11 pounds).

That has to be a bubble. But seriously you could probably kill someone with a PS3, they are dam heavy.

Then again it says they should of bought a wii. I guarentee you could do some real damage with a Wii..

Man that would hurt. We all know how heavy that technical beast of a console is. I'll probably get drowned in disagrees but i feel sorry for the console lol jokes jokes.

I was asked the other day, if there was a zombie apocalypse, what would be my first choice of melee weapon?

I selected the PS3, its not like I'd have anytime to play it during the whole 'zombie invasion thing', but I bet you it could bludgeon a few zombies.

Besides, it'd probably still work afterwards.
