    This is, without a doubt, the coolest PS3 story I’ve heard about in a long time. Two burglars broke into a Florida home and started to ransack the place. What they didn’t know is that Damian Fernandez and his 15-year-old sister Deanne were both home at the time. Deanne hid in her closet when she heard the robbers break in through her front door and watched the whole ordeal unfold… Read More

    Just Don’t Use Craigslist To Sell Your PS3, Ok?

    OK, it goes without saying that the online listings service known as Craigslist is already shady enough. You should know better not to put an over-inflated console up for sale and not to meet the guy who wants to buy it at 1AM. Some jackass in La Palma, CA did just that and ended up getting pepper sprayed and then having his PS3s stolen. Next time you want to sell a console for $5000 dude, do… Read More
