yeah, there is a donate button on the sites and a meter that shows if he got back the money he spent in buying the console.

That's actually a nice idea, I'd like to do that with cars, but then I'd need a little more donations.

I disagree. It's first come, first served. He got there first and got a 360. It's his to do whatever he pleases with. If he wants to smash it up in front of other people, go for it! If the people in line get pissed off at this, they should have gotten there earlier.

I totally agree with u. He paid for it so he has the right to anything to it.

yeah, i agree with spank on this, though it would be annoying to be standing in a line and seeing someone smashing up the thing your waiting for...

He may have the right to, but it's still awfully disrespectful. It depends too, because some stores were giving their pre-orders first, and some just have first come-first serve. I'm not sure which Best Buy was going for...

Either way, it's still really mean. It's kind of like burning a UC Berkeley T-Shirt in front of Cal fans at Stanford during the Big Game. It's disrespectful and some people really take it as a sign of hostility.
