A Tornado May Have Taken This Man's Home, But It Spared His PS4

System shock

There are often scant silver linings when a fierce tornado cruelly destroys your home and all of your worldly belongings, but one Washington dweller found a single reason to smile this week – his brand new PlayStation 4 weathered the storm. The above image – shared on Reddit yesterday – shows an optimistic home owner holding onto his undamaged console amid the wreckage of his former front room.

While the picture may raise a wry smile, the poster also had a much more important message to spread: if you want to help with the Tornado relief effort, consider donating to the Red Cross. Given the devastation of the storm, any contributions will make a difference – be they financial or blood-based. You can find out more information on that through here. In the meantime, cross your fingers and hope that this guy will be playing Killzone: Shadow Fall soon.

Wow. Still nothing beats the Gameboy that went through a bomb blast in the Gulf War.

Still glad that he made it out alright.

This story makes me feel somewhat better amidst the stories of some ass-hats out there... one smashing a PS4 with a bat at Best Buy in Orlando anther destroy his PS4 in his garage and then urinate on it to yet anther that shoots the console with two rounds from a .50 cal. Barrett all so they can some hits on YouTube. But this guy in Washington IL. who found his PS4 untouched after weather from hell is good one.
