Video: Microwaving a Sony PlayStation 3 Game Console
Not sure why someone would want to do this, but for those who have always wondered what happens when you put a Sony PS3 into the microwave can now find out.
The video comes from dovetastic, with the caption reading as follows:
This is a Double Feature Motion Microwaving Event Presentation brought to you by dOvetastic Microwave Theater about the story of an unsuspecting PS3 Sony Playstation Three and it's Controller that got microwaved into the biggest, baddest Gaming system on the planet. So hurry and grab your front row seats because you are in a for a world premier in grand style.
What is it with people destroying things and posting them on YouTube? Shock factor? Their parents didn't pay attention to them as a child? Oh and at the end of the video he seemed to "loose it", obviously mental problems. Probably a pyromaniac or something. Or maybe he's trying to provoke a reaction.
Bottom line, the guy is a lunatic and these types of videos are stupid.
I didn't see any part that proved the internals were still in the PS3. Who is to say he didn't take out the blu-ray drive and power supply and sell them for $250 and then microwave a YLOD motherboard in a case. Maybe it wasn't such a huge waste of money.
It looked a bit neglected before he put in the microwave, like it had been outside for a few days or something. Perhaps it was a broken model he bough locally or off Ebay. And as "mattdrumgod" said, he did not show any internals. Reminds me of the dude who chainsawed his PS3 in half.
