Teen gets PS3 for x-mas, but guess what's inside the box

Thousand Oaks  --  Imagine tearing into a holiday present to find a PlayStation 3 box... with a phone book sealed inside! That's what happened to 13-year-old Brandon Burns Christmas morning. He says he laughed about it when it happened. His parents... not so much, since they spent $500 for the PS3. They say they plan on taking the phone book, the box, and their receipt back to the Thousand Oaks mall store where they bought it. Good luck, guys!

Why would a PS3 box be sealed? I suppose I could be wrong in interpreting that as meaning shrink-wrapped. PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 boxes are not shrink-wrapped.

If they meant that tiny little circular sticker that holds the flap closed, then it's not hard to pull it up, replace the contents, and stick it back down.

Also, someone else did this earlier this year with an Xbox 360. Except it wasn't a phone book, it was some kind of medical book.

Doesn't matter much what kind of book it is, as long as the weight is about right. Bastards :/

Excuse me, but I find amusing a thing like this could be reported in the news o_O
