The Most Expensive Wii U On EBay Was Melted Down In A Microwave Oven

The Most Expensive Wii U On EBay Was Melted Down In A Microwave Oven


“Professional microwaver” Kenny Irwin has performed a day-one (or close to it) nuking of of the Nintendo 3DS and the PlayStation Vita, as well as microwaving an Xbox 360 Elite (remember that model?) in the name of art. So hell yes he was going to melt down a deluxe-edition Wii U on release day, as you get to see here. Take that Will-it-Blend guy!

After hosing the holy bejabbers out of that with a powerwasher, Irwin stuck one of his trademark weirdo eyeballs on it and listed the slag pile on eBay for a hell of a lot more than the current highest asking price for one that actually works. Just $US3,490.03! The thing already has three offers.

I’m sorry, what in the hell did I just watch again?

  • the actual console held up surprisingly well.

    Edit: no doubt its screwed, but it didn’t melt as much as I expected it to like the controller did.

  • This guy is a jackass. Buys something like this just to nuke it, call it art and sell it for a profit. If you’re going to do something this stupid and wasteful then gain profit from it, the. At least donate some of that to charity so at least your wasteful nature becomes useful

  • Say what you will about the person burning shit but whoever buys this crap at that price and expects “art” “collectors” or “increased value over time” needs to be culled off. now.

  • I really don’t get this stuff. Why are people supporting this>?

    I put it up there with “new record for continuous gaming streak, 120hrs!”
