Not Always Right: Let The Flamewars Commence

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a game-related tale of misery from Not Always Right, but it seems the recent PlayStation 3 redesign and price drop might have spurred misfortune for at least one clerk in California:

Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

Customer: “I want to buy a PS3.”

Me: “That’s great. Which one would you like?”

Customer: “What do you mean?”

Me: “Well, I have an 80GB and a 160GB available.”

Customer: “What does that mean?”

Me: “One has twice the memory of the other.”

Customer: “What does that mean?”

Me: “One system can store two times the amount of data as the other.”

Customer: “What does that mean?”

Me: “The 160GB system can hold twice the amount of songs, videos and game saves.”

Customer: “Well, what is the difference between the two?”

Me: “One system has twice the memory of the other.”

Customer: “Can they both play PS3 games?”

Me: “Yes, sir…”

Customer: “Then what is the difference between the two?”

(This went on for awhile. He ended up buying an Xbox 360.)

I wonder how he decided which Xbox 360 to buy?

But I’ll bet the real fun will begin when he comes back asking what the three blinking red lights mean.
