the fact it says he has to "settle for an xbox 360" is a great line for arguments lol, watch out incase the known fanboys come online and see this. if i was that man i would have still taken loads of PS3 games aswell ;)

Sounds funny, but this can be used as an advertising.

bandit: Freeze! Give me all the PS3 you have!

staff: excuse me?

bandit: You heard me!!! I will not ask one more time! Give me all the PS3 you have!

staff: Sorry Sir, we don't carry those.

bandit: Why not!?

staff: at blockbuster were are not taking taking part of the format war just yet; it's too early to take sides.

bandit: what are you talking about!? The PS3 is a game console!

staff: Actually it's a blu-ray player and at the moment there is only 2 good games...

bandit: really...

staff: Yes, the 360 has more game and better online...

bandit: Freeze mother trucker! Give me all the Xbox 360 you have.

staff: ohh no... not again...

[bandit runs out the door.... {few minutes later}... bandit at home paying Xbox 360 over xbox live GTA4 + exclusive content} JUMP IN!

the "red rings" strikes 360. burglar goes, "WTF?"

drives back to the store and shoots down the staff who gave him the 360.

oh.. well... reality sucks!

It looks as if a fanboy *bladestar* has found and commented right below you. Fanboyism at its BEST. Gotta hate them xbots.

He must have heard one of Ken's motivational speeches or maybe had gone mad seeing the amazing adverts shown on the tv.

you guys make it sound so awful that he had to settle for an xbox360. it wasn't that bad - at least he got an elite.

nix4185d ago (Edited 4185d ago )

i guess.. we'll soon see him back at the store to "pick-up" the HD-DVD drive.. q:

anh_duong4185d ago (Edited 4185d ago )

hahah. and IF it was a display xbox360 in one of those perspex cabinets then i can only guess that we all do him a favour and post the microsoft customer support number here..

it says a lot that Blockbusters don't stock PS3!

kewlkat0074185d ago (Edited 4185d ago )

why wouldn't BB carry PS3's?

Of course a big difference in not having some in stock and not stocking all together...

Bebedora4185d ago

Was my reaction too. Why on earth did they not have any in stock?

techie4185d ago

Blockbuster do carry them...wonder why this one doesnt though. Doubt they sold out to be honest.

Apparently a lady brought back a ps3 and swapped it for a 360. Her reason was "The ps3 is a b*tch to clean" ;)

Bebedora4185d ago (Edited 4185d ago )

I have to agree on that one. Black covered electronics, shiny and dust goes together somehow.

That it's not selling like hotcakes is one thing and so my reaction to it. Maybe the clerk was an avid fanboy of the xbox? *S*

"No playstation will cross my desk, not on my shift! Over my dead body!"
