This reminds me of that drunk kid at the Halo: Reach launch. It seems these dumbasses are becomnig more and more common in the wild today. Their species needs to be eradicated :P

Despite previous reports, the fire was much larger. You can see smokes outside the mall.

Hero! Now if only more people would follow his lead. lol

i just read this and it is a mall i go to from time to time. The guys at that GS dont know jack and talk lots of crap about sony.

Even though i play my 360 more than my ps3 I find that very disrespectful as a whole. You dont dis a platform or company. Especially in front of other customers because a customer may be doing it.

I wouldnt call this guy a hero but he has saved me the pain of going in to that location again.
