Sony's newest PS3 model: PS3 Chocolate

It seems as if Sony has yet another low-budget PS3 model in the works - only this time it's made completely of chocolate. Sony unveiled a stack of 150 PS3s along with a giant Sixaxis controller during Eurochocolate in Perugia, Italy recently. Eurochocolate is an annual nine-day event for chocolate connoisseurs the world over, and features food tasting, competitions and all sorts of other stuff people like to do with chocolate.

However, the revelry quickly turned to shock when, after the unveiling, several people, who we assume were riotous Xbox 360 fanboys, rushed the stage and trampled Sony's hard work. Due to this diabolical act of terrorism, attendees were treated with free chocolate PS3s.

Reports from people on scene claim the PS3 Chocolate disappointingly lacked the internals to support backwards compatibility like Sony's other new system.

1. Thats cute.

Its sad that people to ruin events like this. This whole 360 vs ps3 thing has gotten a bit out of control over the past few months really...

3. So it was designed to be destroyed? It would have been quite funny if there was a wooden box inside for support, and the people running to it would have gotten a concussion, thinking the thing's hollow.

4. Trampled the stage? WHY?!? It's made of chocolate! And it's a fake PS3! How does this offend?!?

6. Damn you Xbox 360 Fanboys!!! Payback time. Say goodbye to your wax Master Chief!

7. I really want to see a demographic on the user base of each console. I mean really, if those were really just rebellious fans (hard to tell their age), then Microsoft really needs to spend some time calming down their users a bit. What a waste of food, but at least the audience were happy with the chocolate.

9. HAHA! Look at the expression on their faces! X-bots are very violent people! LOL!

This System war thing is out of control. People need to just play games on all systems and be happy.

10. Ah, thank you Sony- for giving those children type 2 diabetes. High-tech deliciousness.

11. n00bs this was all planned by Sony. Those people aren't xbots they're some eurochocolate workers. I mean for all that chocolate to go to waste would be a shame, they had to distribute it. Although the controller remained intact.

Don't you find it hard to believe that someone snapped a perfect photo of the destruction just when it began and that Ps3fanboy only wrote one paragraph about it?

That, and it says on the eurochocolate website that it was planned. Just use some translator to see.

12. It's got a really good launch lineup.

13. Whups, that launch lineup again:

14. The only worthwhile text from Omar's link:
"Heavenly Sword (of Chocolate)
Lair (of the Chocolate Dragon)
Metal Gear Chocolate
Nougat & Clank
Little Big Wonka Bar
Chocolate: Fall of Fat Man
Unchocolated: Drake's Misfortune"

Shame on your for blatantly linking to a worthless post on a site just to get hits...

15. @6: I'll bring the sledgehammer.

16. Hahaha! That's so rocking. Mmm, a tasty PS3.

17. Maybe the people causing all the ruckus were ex-employees of Lik-Sang.

Posted at 11:15AM on Oct 16th 2007 by Syril Ram

18. Then why is the guy carrying a briefcase that says Playstation on it?
