    turned to thievery to get his hands on one. If he never
    would have been forced to steal one, the police never
    would have came to his door and he never would have
    been shot.

    Nintendo would never do that. Nintendo CARES about
    human life. That's why they're shipping 250,000 Wiis per
    week - so more innocent people aren't brutally slaughtered.

    I'm not a Nintendo Fanboy. I'm a human life advocate,
    man.
    Alright! This forum has some life in it after all!

    Yeah, blame Apple, because a man was killed with an iPod.

    No one blamed PS3. We are just joking about it.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Might as well ban all kind of entertainment. And all countries have to be Police States. That should lower the rate of crimes.

    Cause we all know that Sony has agents around the world that are supposed to be guarding every PS3 from malicious behavior.

    Sony's police force - DRM is its name.

    It's actually the SDF - Sony Defence Force. Some of them disguised as "fanboys"
