PlayStation controller found murdered at EB in cold blood

The crime is murder. Dial M for Murder. Murder, she wrote. Murder McMurderton, crime scene investigator; specialty: murder. All of this must be said in that guy's voice who does all the dramatic movie previews. We demand it right now! In any case, this is a story that can be considered humorous, anti-Sony, whatever. Fact is, it's a pretty silly idea and we got a kick out of it.

Over at the SomethingAwful forums, a man is quoted thus: "I walked up to my EB yesterday morning half asleep as per usual. Put my key in the lock, unlocked the door, and looked down. This is what I saw: (pictured right)...Yes, that is paint. No, I, or anyone else at my store, had anything to do with it. I can't decide if it's a guerilla marketing thing (in which case, while funny, it's vandalism) or if it's some bored kids. Seems like a lot of work just to say "Lol, PlayStation is dead."

Nice. At the campus here at UGA, viral stuff like this is spraypainted everywhere -- things like Obey to a variety of guns with nonsensical quips about them. Or gears with the word "Money" beneath it. Whatever. This is, by far, the coolest, despite the negative Sony message. What do you guys think?
