Ok, OK, I hate to stir the 'PS3 conspiracy' pot, but I thought GAFers would be interested in this.

Redi Godshaw, the kid with the unusually dusty PS3, is a professional actor and has been paid to act on FOX shows before.

He goes on FOX news, with a horrendously dusty PS3, and it is never mentioned either that A.) He is a professional actor, or B.) His PS3 was far beyond normal levels of 'dusty'.

It just seems to me that FOX didn't provide 'fair and balanced' views of a problem with a foreign electronics manufacturer.

Gaf's thoughts?

I'd just like to say, regardless if he's a actor who was paid to do this, his story reeks of BS. So he says his friend came over to watch Planet Earth, they don't think to themselves to dust over the thing once?

And that reporter saying she has these issues too, do people take care of their fucking consoles? No way you could let it turn into what was in that pic.

I don't know who this "dusty PS3 kid" is, or why exactly he's so esteemed and reputable, but I will say that even though I play my PS3 all the time, it gets pretty dusty. It's a bit of a dust magnet.

You need to see the picture of his PS3 to understand.

It's a fucking news story on a product that the guy probably doesn't own since he's an actor getting paid to lie. Should I not be outraged? The real question now is who set this whole thing up?

Then all these people watch FOX news and probably think "Oh the PS3 sucks"

FOX news is hardcore pro-american industry, so I can see why 360 gets the most preferrable coverage from them, and MSNBC is MSNBC of course...

ROFL it looks like he's been fucking it with a dusty dick. There is dust in every hole! I got like the dustiest effin' room EVER and my PS3 only has a light film of dust on top of it, but no where as bad as that guy's. Not to mention I probably use my ps3 once every two weeks.


Speaking of which. doesn't it say in the warrenties in many electronics that excessive dust voids it?

Ya know...because if you want a new one you can just pour dust on that bitch.

My psp and ps3 are dust and lint magnets, but not like the one this kid is trying to have repaired.

I use a dry cloth to wipe my electronics. Even my samsung hd TV is a lint magnet.

This kid either does not know how to take care of his stuff or he is a bold face liar, or both.

The Wii is in it's own little world. The PS3 is closer in price with the 360 so why would they go after the wii?

Its obvious from the pic that the contents of like a vacuum cleaner bag or something was poured over the PS3, the slot on the left was open as well. I never knew dust can travel sideways, supposedly it drifted down and at the exact level of the readers it made a '90 and went sideways fully enveloping the readers, getting right into the slots. It did this as well for the usb slots, fucking fantastic! :lol
