Even PS haters might feel stupid of giving him $20,300 to buy a limited edition PS4 and then break it. I don't think that PS4 is worth that much.

Well nobody really seems to care since there's only 4 backers, two of which are for $50 and probably from his friends/his own wallet just to get it started. He also looks like a huge douchebag, judging by his picture and bio.

I don't think this will end up happening.

well it is sony and the ps4 isn't my favorite console but i'm just not a sony fan my take is if you don't want it just sell the dang thing you get a hell of lot more value than destroying the thing

They could at least sell the console instead of destroying it. That'll be a waste of money right there.

Not being funny, but if someone paid me 20 grand to smash my console I wouldn't even hesitate... I would just buy another right after and keep the 19.5 grand as profit.

You know what that super-expensive PS4 is? A fucking case mod. No. Seriously. That's it. A mod a 10 year old could handle. Get some grey plastic, the proper screwdrivers, the Playstation logo, and enough nerve to dissect a PS4, and BOOM. You've got one. More effort went into this PS1 mod, damn it:

Seriously. Smash it. It's an insult to the consumer's intelligence.

Super Expensive?

Sony sold that edition of the PS4 for the same price as the normal PS4, here in the UK they even sold some for £0.99 rather than £349.99 that guy paid no more than $500 for it and if people were to pay him 20k to smash it he's in the money.

It's hardly super expensive it's not worth what he wants for it, last I checked they weren't even selling on Ebay for half of what he wants.

Objection withdrawn. This is a simple case of price gouging.

I personally think the person who is holding the kickstarter is such an idiot and the people eho pay him are even bigger idiots. Anyhow, I don't think it's a waste of money since Sony opened up a few stores around Europe where you could pick it up for as little as 0.99€.

Brilliant idea.

Almost brilliant execution.

Let's face it: people like seeing stuff get destroyed. It's why we have demolition derby, MythBusters, and "stock car" racing. People can also get passionate about video game consoles and hate on console manufacturers. Further, Sony is a highly deserving target. And then you have the power of the internet to spread the word.

Given all this, it's not hard to come to the conclusion that there'd be a fair number of people willing to pay to see a rare video game console produced by Sony get destroyed.

There's one flaw in his plan, though: he set his sights too high. If he'd set the goal at price of the PS4 + one or two hundred, I bet he'd be doing much better.

I think he also should've included some videos of him smashing other things. Maybe put some effort in and pretty them up, too. Make it epic.

Coulda been better.

$120 out of $20k

Poor guy but he deserves it, that kickstarter could've just been used for donation or whatnot, he should learn from the guy who gave a mortgage fix to his parents as a christmas gift.
