Ever since July, when seven-year-old Christopher used his DS, a handheld electronic game console, to help free his trapped family from their crashed car, his mum Kathleen Wilkes says he can have anything he wants.
i guess kangaroos are the aussie equivalent of our stupid deer. oh and "maybe the dingo ate your baby"
yeah but score ONE for gaming yay!!!... now we'll 10 news stories about how *best best Ozzy accent* "maybe gaming ate your baby"
save the kangaroos
"when seven-year-old Christopher used his DS, a handheld electronic game console, to help free his trapped family from their crashed car" After reading that, I really had to see what this was all about.
http://www.hotbloodedgaming... I remember reading about this a while ago, nice to see Nintendo actually cares, and did something for his family. *Looks* at Sony and Microsoft.
nintendo did shit all.
Nintendo just gave him a life time nintendo pass which was a nice thing but ruining the gaming industry was not. @R_aVe_N They made the DS does that count?
I am confused how does Nintendo care? They didn't do anything at all!
These kinds of stories always make me roll my eyes. They have these massive statements like "someone was trapped in a basement being set ablaze, and one person had to go in and save him!" etc. and then the end result is so cheap and stupid. The end result of this one is the kid using the DS light to unbuckle his mother or something. I mean come on are you serious. The article builds up this huge thing and then THAT'S the big reveal? So dumb. Also the title is misleading. I thought Nintendo themselves gave someone some kind of lifetime pass. But it was just his mother who says Nintendo is okay now, or some BS.
your just mad cause you wouldnt be able to save em even with a flashlight like common the kid if 5 years old, most kids that age would just cry until someone else rescues them
Make the DS a hero?
the mum is an idiot, all he used was the ds' backlight. if he had used a torch would she have got him a life time supply of torches
wow realy? the mom's an idiot? wow really? holy cow the type of people the internet has spawned in scary.
Nintendo didn't give him a pass...it was his mom.
I thought it was gonna say the kid used some amazing medical technique he learnt from trauma centre to save his mums life. Instead, he used the light from the screen to unbelt his mother. That's a good kid, but he would have been a great kid if he also used his trauma centre game to give that kangaroo CPR or something
I have a feeling a couple flashlights in the glovebox would be better than using a DS.
NDS: It only does...
Can't you even pretend to be human and act like you care that the boy saved somebody's life! I mean really! We're all gamers, but we're humans first!!!!
disagrees? so are you saying we aren't humans?
So not only does it print money but now it even saves lives.
...the spelled "Mom" wrong.
have you never heard of the word mum???? short for mummy which is short for mother which is short for motherfu**** which is what you are... just kiddin :) that is shocking though are you still learning how to speak?
...obviously it is an Australian dialect
It's an Australian article they don't talk and spell words the same as America. Try to remember that the USA is not the center of the universe, there are other cultures out there also. So in Australia they say mum instead of mom. Maybe it because I serve in the US military and got to see other countries and cultures first hand but damnit boy don't you even watch TV, movies, or pay attention in school when they talk about other cultures around the world and their differences or are you so blinded by some delusional thought they everyone must be like your culture.
I'm Canadian and we use European dialect and Americans use their own but they think their own is *ALWAYS* right. Heh.
silly american children
i onced used a credit card to save me from starvation
"I smell a new game! Nintendo hero!"
wait intill the kids turns 12 and get and xbox with COD
the gba sp works great as a flashlight, gives you a more direct light than these backlit screens too.
