life imitates playstation

in a twist so ironic as to be totally lost on the people who stood in line for hours to buy this crap, people were actually shot, hurt and otherwise violently-mayhemed out of commission as they tried to buy the latest version of sony-playstation. reuters:

a man was shot early on friday morning outside a wal-mart store in connecticut while waiting to buy a new sony playstation 3, state police said.

he was one of 15 to 20 people lined up outside the store when confronted by two armed men who demanded money at around 3:15 a.m., lt. j. paul vance said in a press release.

police said the victim had confronted the armed suspects and was shot. he was treated at the scene and transported to the university of massachusetts medical center across the state line.
of course, actual bullets aren't used until you get to level 7. on the lower levels, however, there is still plenty of violent action enough to satisfy any slacker who thinks manipulating buttons with their thumbs is "interactive":
