Reid Godshaw, the Dirty PlayStation Kid has posted on PlayThree.net to debunk the conspiracy theories against him. He states that he is a long time Sony consumer, a genuine customer, and categorically denies being paid to attack Sony.
Just look at his PS3, it's a huge mess. Looks like he was in a dirt rally with it. I'm glad they refused to replace it.
if i sold this guy something and he returned it in that condition asking me to honour his warrenty, id kick him in the nuts.
oh, and tell him to have a bloody shave, nice bum fluff noob...
I just checked out this kid's MySpace page. Yikes, that hair. No wonder he's a bit actor.
He must have been towing his PS3 behind him during that dirt rally.
this kid's hair says:
"I categorically deny being paid to trash Sony's console...however...I fully admit to being 100% douchebag..."
Dirty Playstation kid
I can take one look at this kid and know he's full of sh1t.
Lol! Mighty Douche, that aint bum fluff! It's DIRT!
lol, funny sh!t man.
My ps3 is spotless even though i can't remember the last time i switched it on.
This guy is probably just trailer trash whose entire house is one gigantic pigsty... What a dumbfnck.
Maybe learning to dust would be top of his priorities.....
.....Unless he lives somewhere really dusty there is no excuse for the console being in that state, even if it is a dusty area you can still prevent that sort of neglect.
They could have opened it up to find nothing but a text book in it.
Didn't he say that he "wiggled the eject button" or something moronically retarded to that effect? Kinda makes it looks like he up to something.
I thought using the word "wiggled" was a bit weird too.
Anyway, I somehow don't believe Sony said it was a hazard to repair it. They wouldn't repair it because he let it go to sh1t and therefore doesnt deserve it. xD I don't blame them.
I doubt he is a paid actor, but he certainly is an idiot.
He sure did say that, so that totally discredited him completely. Anyone who owns or has played a PS3 extensively knows there is no eject button to jiggle. And that's not just a simple thing you can forget and accidentally say, considering there's only one button on the thing and that's the main power switch in the back. Not only that but we've all SEEN the thing, seriously I could not have wiped down my PS3 for the entire time I've had it and it wouldn't have been anywhere near that dusty.
agreed...I have had my PS3 since March, which has had it living in two different apartments since then...both of which have considerable dust...
I barely "dust" anything...I have gone weeks at a time without physically touching the ps3 except to change discs or plug in a controller...the gloss finish does get "dusty", but nothing like what that jackass had...basements are not even that bad...
and yeah "I jiggled...er...pressed the eject button"...completely destroys his story...he never mentions trying to eject it through the xmb either...considering how dirty it was, it could have been likely that his stupid finger wasn't making a good contact with the eject button...which simply completes a circuit in order to tell the PS3 to eject something...you don't press it...its just a little metal contact...
there have been other stories of PS3s not ejecting due to a firmware problem...and mine has stuck once or twice (simply didn't recognize a disc...restarted it...worked fine)...so I am not saying that the kid never had a problem in the first place...but its very obvious that if he isn't a paid retard...he has no business playing games anyway...for being an actor, he hardly knew what he needed to say in order to make his story more believable...
Even d-list actors can afford to throw away a ps3 and buy a new one.
Didn't you hear? He's moving in with the 2 Corey's next week. LOL
Sony could easily just use compressed air to blow the internal dust away. Is it really that hard to do?
I don't think that is the issue really. He could have prevented this very easily but didn't out of his own selfishness. That is neglect. I don't feel a bit sorry for him. He is a slob.
Don't they even tell you how to keep your machine clean and well-ventilated?
Come on now, this is in no way Sony's fault or responsibility. He can go buy a can of air himself and a Swifter to clean his nasty @ss house.
I realize that. But he did dump $600 on it, so the least they can do is fix it just ONCE in his case and keep a track record. So the next time he sends his console for repair (if it happens to be the same issue again) they can charge him.
If he'd been thinking about that $600 he dumped on it, maybe he wouldn't have dumped all that damn dirt on it as well.
Is that you Reid Godshaw? You really should take better care of your things.
I'm not sure if it's Sony's responsibility to clean his console for him. I think it would fall under user maintenance. Also, I don't have a PS3 (yet) , so I don't have a manual, but I found this:
It clearly states: Do not place the system in an area subject to excessive dust or cigarette smoke. Dust build-up or cigarette smoke residue on the internal components (such as the lens) may cause the system to malfunction.
Would that be enough reason to void his warranty?
I don't blame Sony for not fixing it because I'm pretty sure all consoles(and consumer electronics) have warranties that cover everything except (gross)neglect, which this obviously was.
I do see your point and it is very valid. Sony is getting negative press for this because it makes them look picky or lazy in their seemingly ridiculous decision NOT to help their customer. The gaming world is taking it the opposite though, which is deserving and just.
If Sony fixes the machine then it could open the flood gates for more negative press and more neglected machines demanding to be fixed. With so much negative press I doubt it would make a difference.
If I were to make a product and someone took it and thrashed it, then returned to me and demanded I fix it I would probably show them the door and give them a quick lesson in manners and responsibility. It would give the rest of my consumers the wrong idea of how I run my business.
Your idea is completely valid though. They could do it, but I think this is a matter of principle in which I see Sony being in the right on this one. That sucks for the kid, but hopefully he learned his lesson and can be at least a little more responsible.
Him keeping the system from getting that dirty in the first place?
Do you not THINK?!?!?
But I think the damage had already been done.
If he was so worried about the thing working right, he should have looked after it better.
What you saw in the pictures was just the dust on the outside...imagine how much dust the fans had been sucking in.
Yeah right Reid, like we believe you. Anyway how did your Ps3 get so dusty, where do you live? In a barn?
and I'm not thinking about Microsoft but FoxNews since most of their stuff seems to be made by them
And when people seem to have killed someone, are they guilty? You need proof, stop spreading lies.
... and i was like "whao!"
does he live in the house at all?
he lives in a hut in the middle of the Sahara Desert
More like under the Sahara lol.
he's on microsoft's payroll, good man there :-D
by the way, sony does the same thing.....over-inflating all the rrod and sH&T you really think, alot of that wasn't just more marketing spin.....
Sony doesn't have to do anything about the RROD. Everyone knows all about that problem. I don't see Sony putting anything in their ads that says the PS3 has no red rings.
Well, my Elite got the three red lights after only 3 hours of play yesterday and Sony had nothing to do with that. It's fine now but I would have been pissed if it wasn't considering that I have the warranty through Best Buy and they are out of Elites like every other store is around here.
PS3 Cost me £369.99 = I dust it every every few days, hoover anything out of the Vents as i have done with all my other consoles and i have had zero failures in the past.
What kind of d!ckhead lets his console get like that. Spoiled pr!ck. He obviously didn't have to save up or work hard to get it.
what the rest of reids house looks like. F$%king liar!!!
He's the perfect Microsoft employee.
Looks like he already did, but how can his system be that dirty?
He must be up to something how could anyone seriously box that and send it out? The thing is disgusting i feel embarrassed when my friends come over and theres a lil dust on my PS3. What does his mother think of him? Hell if you live in a house and allow your electronics to become that dirty i dare not ask to borrow your bathroom. He's just nasty and i too believe this is a paid conspiracy. How hard would it have been to dust the thing off it takes a total of 20-30 seconds just dust the fackin thing you nasty piece of cow waist product. That is neglectful and just plain disgustingly nasty. I really hope he doesn't have children if he does am callin child services...
What's wrong with this guy? Who let's their PS3 become totally caked with dirt. It looks like he took it offroading. Maybe he's not a fake, maybe he really is that dumb.
he's a freakin Slob..who was paid to appear on Fox news..why would I believe a word that comes out of his mouth..even If I didn't clean my PS3 for a year it wouldn't look like that...
Mabe he should try wiggling the eject button some more...and it will probably work...so how's Planet Earth....lol
"The Dirty Playstation Kid™" lol. He will forever be known for that name now like the "Star Wars Kid"
Edit: I've added the Trade Mark before I get sued. :)
If you check out my website I even put the TM symbol. Razzy, I think you may be right.
I suppose the Dirty PlayStation Kid™ has never taken a bath for two years and all his skin flakes are inside the PS3. yuck!!!!
why do you think he wasnt in the studio, they wouldnt let him enter because he smelt to bad
Hey guys my Wii and 360 just got unearthed. My dog buried them in the backyard in the sand box. Nintendo and MS just told me they wouldn't replace them. WTH?! I would call Fox News but I'm not an actor.
Haha, I wouldn't replace the ps3 either...it's dirty as hell. People think they could get away with abusing a console, good for sony.
i wounder y did he want to repair it if he doesnt even care or play or clean his ps3?? some one paid him or he is a xbot!! there is no reason that the ps3 can get to that state in less than a year!! man his ps3 looks a decade old that was left in a zoo!!
omg that ps3 how messed up is that i can understand if sony would not want to repair that
no colin Mcray DIRT jokes yet? hmmm...
ROFL! That was cheesy but funny.
Sony should repair it either way if someone had overpaid 600 Euro/Dollar for the PS3 @ launch. Even if they had tried to flush it through the toilet.
Just because they got facked over for 200 Euro/Dollar. In Europe even within 6 months. Such a drop normally occurs after two years or more. Not after 6 months or within 11 months after launch.
Repair the damn thing Sony. This negative buzz only gives you more swing in the negative spiral
Learn English. You might mean 'peas' or 'please' maybe.
certainly not for you.
gah nu maar weer op insidegamer ps3 games afkraken
Have you actually seen his ps3?
It really doesn't matter how much they pay. When you allow to get THAT much dust, company shouldn't be responsible.
You don't leave your console in a rain and complain it doesn't work. What he is doing is pretty darn close to that.
What the hell do you care about Sony? It's only in your world that Sony is looking bad, the SANE world knows this kid is a giant mongloid just seeking attention.
asking the mart for peas is kind of funny.
"hmm, me? Idk... im a guy.. i live in Burbank, im In OFY I love computers, cell phones, electronics.... and fixing all of the above.......... and breaking all of the above"
click agree if ud love to pound his face in!
I feel stupid to comment on this, but there is no way that the machine can be that dusty.
It's a companies responsibility to fix things I ruin because I'm irresponsible, careless, and stupid. OK, sure, then after they fix mine more idiots will do the same thing. You people who say Sony should replace it are idiots. They shouldn't do anything to it. There is NO company out there who would even acknowledge this sort of request from such a raisin sack. $600 or $6 it doesn't matter. The only reason some of these people are saying Sony should do something is because they are the same type of douche bags whose equipment is covered with Cheetos, Coke spills, and cigarette ashes. Your as pathetic as this fool.
Nice soul patch, kook.
He is forever going to be known as 'the Dirty Playstation Kid' lol (oops ... didn't mean to laugh then ahem)
Still, he might actually get a TV show out of it. Or, when he's desperate a porn gig :P
