+ - PS3 USA Launch: Shooting, Bashings and Muggings

Submitted by
Sentri
Sentri writes "The Washington Post reports on the various types of damage people have been causing each other to get their hands on a PS3.

"Two people were arrested in Fresno, Calif., after a crowd trampled people in a parking lot.", "Another shopper was beaten and robbed of his new PlayStation 3 just minutes after he bought it", "Elsewhere, two men wearing black ski masks and sunglasses made off with five consoles after holding two employees at gunpoint" and A "teenager was also robbed of his new PlayStation by a man who tapped on his car window with a handgun in Allentown"

It also reports on two muggers who realised people waiting in line for a PS3 probably have some cash on them, and are thus easy pickings — "Two gunmen in Putnam ... confronted 15 to 20 people standing outside a Wal-Mart store and demanded money ... one of the patrons resisted. That patron was shot"

Obviously these thieves have seen the eBay prices of PS3 consoles
