The launch of the PS5 has proven to be a huge deal over the last few days. But, a YouTuber has already destroyed one and tried to return it to GameStop for a refund in a bizarre video.

The PlayStation 5 is a tough commodity to get a hold of. With pre-orders and demand greatly outweighing the supply, anyone that’s managed to secure a PS5 can consider themselves fortunate. On the flip side, anyone unable to procure one has been left to feel disappointed.

To rub salt into the wound, a popular YouTuber by the name of Mega64 hasn’t handled his PS5 with great care. Boasting over half a million subscribers, Mega64 – real-name Rocco Botte – films himself buying the console with Demon’s Souls, returning home, and letting the entertainment commence.

Destroying a PS5

After purchasing his console from Gamestop, Mega64 returns home with his new purchase – a brand new PS5 Digital Edition. He excitedly sets up the machine and tries to insert Demon’s Souls into the console, the joke being that he’s forgotten it’s a disc-less console.

From there, Rocco fumbles around trying to find a way to insert the disc to no avail. He resorts to drastic measures including applying washing up liquid to the disc and covering the PS5 in mayonnaise. When all else fails, he resorts to tools and proceeds to dismantle the console in a fit of rage.

Now, the video is obviously all supposed to be acting – that is until he tries to return it to Gamestop. He leaves a Gamestop employee completely bemused as the console is saturated in all-manner of liquids and is in literal pieces.

Needless to say, the Gamestop employee is not amused, and won’t refund the purchase. Rocco says he’ll settle for a new Xbox S instead. He does appear to walk off with something, but whether it is indeed the Xbox remains to be seen.

Whilst the comedic element is clearly present here, the sheer waste of the console may upset some people. It’s also not the first time the channel has featured the destruction of a Sony console either.

He was also seen destroying a PSP Go in one of his videos. Again, this was another console that didn’t require physical games as it is a purely digital console.

YouTube star and beauty guru James Charles may have just teased one of the biggest games of Among Us we’ve seen yet, tagging massively popular personalities like Corpse Husband, Dream, and many more.

InnerSloth’s whodunnit-style game took over the entire internet last year — two years after its initial release — due to its group-based gameplay and hilarious moments that can arise at any time as players attempt to determine the impostor in their midst.

In that timeframe, quite a few content creators also rose to prominence in part because of their hilarious Among Us playthroughs, with the likes of Corpse Husband and more gaining millions of subscribers.

Since then, internet personalities from the “mainstream” have even jumped in on the trend, as seen when TikTok star Addison Rae tried her hand at the game with Dream and Quackity.

James Charles teases among us lobby
Innersloth’s viral video game has become a viral internet sensation two years after its initial release.

Now, makeup mogul James Charles is getting in on the hype, and he’s bringing some of the game’s most popular players along with him for a huge lobby that will undoubtedly score an impressive amount of viewers.

On February 25, James Charles sent out a surprising tweet that tagged some of Among Us’s biggest names: Dream, Corpse Husband, GeorgeNotFound, Valkyrae, Pokimane, Disguised Toast, Sykkuno, TommyInnit, Quackity, and Karl Jacobs, to be exact.

“Y’all ready for tomorrow?” he asked — and while it’s not 100% certain that an Among Us lobby is exactly what he’s got in mind for February 26, it certainly seems to be that way, considering the sheer number of players he tagged who have quite a history with the game.

At the time of writing, Charles’ tweet has certainly amped up the hype, garnering over 32k likes and counting as more and more of the tagged players chime in.

Charles himself has a fairly decent Among Us track record of sorts, having played an “IRL” version of the game with fellow YouTube stars before. That being said, these players could be grouping up for something similar, although considering the current health crisis, a virtual Among Us lobby seems more probable.

There’s no set time for their broadcast just yet, but it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on for those interested in seeing what sort of antics this star-studded squad will get into in just 24 hours’ time.
