Ya know, there comes a time when these "fanboy wars" go too far. And I think this incident is a perfect example.
"A 22-year administrative assistant, who is originally from Hong Kong, was playing his PlayStation Portable when he was surrounded by a group of four or five youths. One of them snatched the games machine from his hand, but when he tried to get it back the whole gang jumped in and began punching him in the face and body.
The train pulled into Hornsey station and the youths got off, but the victim bravely followed and grabbed hold of one of them. He was then set upon again, punched repeatedly in the head and knocked unconscious. The gang fled leaving the man laid out on the platform, before other passengers came to his aid. He was taken to hospital for treatment but released later that day."
This is most definitely the work of those vile and evil DS fanboys! Even though the guy ended up getting his butt kicked, you have to give him credit for not going down without a fight, though.
In all seriousness, though, this is a despicable act, and I really hope the police find these punks. If reading about this incident pissed you off like it did me, this video may make you feel better.
