Bad Men Destroy 12 Retro Consoles, Film It

WIRED's Battle Damage thought it would be fun to take 12 old consoles (for YouTube purposes, the PS3 is now "old") and smash them all up to see which was the most physically durable. My money's on the GameCube, because it didn't have that handle for nothing.

SPOILERS: I was wrong.

    Congratulations Wired. You just made my enemies list.

      If you want to get really mad: Did you know there are some people who go and buy consoles on day 1 of release (even when they had to line up during shortages) and then make videos of themselves smashing the console as soon as they're able?
      They're paid too... by viewers.

        Usually right by the others in line wanting to buy one. Jackasses, the lot of em. :/

        Just give me their names and they'll be added to the list. THEN.....the harvest comes....

    Why? Why would you do this to a sweet, innocent Game cube?? What kind of monster maims classic consoles like that!? You must be just, the worse kind of people....

      It deserved it. It was the conduit for Wind Waker. Now if only they could test every copy of that to destruction, and then burn the winner just to be sureā€¦

    You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!

    One of those american 'gaming' shows did that years ago.

    "I felt a great disturbance in the force, as if twelve voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened."

    Awww hope they were joking about Erik's hard drive... otherwise, dick move.

    Also watched their current gen video, Xbox One survived the same fall which surprised me. (didn't get doused though)

    I hate it. I hate this so much that it just tires me out.

    Kotaku by posting this, you are encouraging this kind of behaviour. . .

    yeah this angers me.... it angers me greatly. i have no respect for these trolls taking obscure gaming systems no longer in production and just demolishing them for the "lulz".

    I suggest we perform drop test of annoying dipshits like this to see which one stops working first. I'll even wear a labcoat and everything, you know, cause it's 'science' and all, right?

    eaaaahh.. *holds my chest*.... eeeeghhhh.... ow.... hnnnnaaaaaghhh... *heavy breathing as tears roll slowly down my cheeks* mmmmaaagghhh.. no pleeeease
