The First Moron To Break His TV With Kinect

Well, the first moron that we've heard of. He's not really a moron, he's Phil Villarreal, author and critic. And he's out a pricey television. You are the controller? No Phil, you are the guy with the broken TV.

"A public service announcement: Do not under any circumstances play Kinect Sports Volleyball at 1.30am while standing under a ceiling fan with a dangling chain for a light switch," he writes.

The result was that Phil apparently spiked the dangling chain into his 47-inch 1080p LCD HDTV, leaving it with a rainbow LCD teardrop of death. Kinect went on sale on November 4 in the US. It is now November 5. That television was purchased last December, and it never lived to see its second Christmas. How sad.

When the Nintendo Wii launched in 2006, there were also claims that flying Wii Remotes caused accidents - some real, some not. Anytime you get gamers off the sofa and floundering around the living room, you're asking for trouble.

Yes, I Am The First Moron To Break His TV With Kinect [because i told you so]


    It was only a matter of time...

    The first time I played the vollyeball I spiked my hand into my 8 foot ceiling. Only did it the once...

    When I played with Eyetoy on PS2, I broke a light globe with a plastic golf club. And another one while trying to jump over a hurdle.
