We always thought the Sega Master System's stealth-black Light Phaser was cooler than our blaze orange NES Zapper, but we never thought it could actually mistaken for a real weapon -- it's pretty obviously plastic, after all. Yeah, we were wrong: a Brazilian man apparently held a 60-year old woman hostage at, uh, phaserpoint for 10 hours until surrendering to police. Next time? He's taking down a bank with a Super Scope.

A man looking to collect on a debt broke into the house of 60-year-old woman in Brazil's Federal District, holding her hostage for ten hours on the business end of a Sega Light Phaser.

The Light Phaser, the light gun that shipped with the Sega Master System, must be fairly common in Brazil, considering how incredibly popular the 8-bit console was in the country—it was one of Sega's strongest markets.

Fortunately, the man released his hostage, unharmed, after negotiating with police (and brandishing a pair of actual deadly knives). "Unharmed" means we can all laugh about it now! In fact, heroic tipster Gustavo even gave us a free joke: "Of course he would not be able to hurt his victim - we can see that the gun was NOT plugged into the console." ROFL!!


This is kinda old news, did a dupe scan, nothing related found, so I thought I'd share it with everyone

Wii Zapper anyone?

Yer' reactions pleez~

Oh yeah, almost forgot about the fail

It's still awful being stab with those actual brandished pair of deadly knives, especially when you're aware that the knife is being pull out from your body and stab you again.

You can say, it's still not a haha moment.
