    So let me get this right…he was using the web browser in his PS3 to post on a Forum..and he decided to post bomb threats…i don’t see how the fact he used his PS3 contributed or took away from this story. I never once heard of someone posting dumb stuff on the internet and thought to myself, “I wonder if he was using PC, Linux, or Mac? Firefox, IE, Safari, or Chrome?”

    I was playing Black Ops with my buddy on Live and some guy threatened to rape my sister after I tomahawked him in Sticks and Stones…where is the news for that? I think the PS3 has been getting a bad rap in the news recently and too many people are focusing on the negative, but I guess that’s what sells.

    Why couldn’t he just jump infront of a train and kill himself like a normal disgruntled Japanese Teen?
