Boston Mayor Charges Sony For PS3 Riots
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino plans to bill Sony for PS3 riots.
During Fridays PlayStation 3 release at Copley Plaza the city was forced to call in twelve police cruisers when a frantic crowd of 500 rushed the doors of Sony store at 5 a.m. Many of the customers were believed to be angered by the fact that the Sony store withheld actual console numbers while allowing a mass of people to stand outside and wait.
Menino believes that Sony helped to provoke the riot by not providing adequate information about console supply in the store as well as little if no security. Menino is now calling that Sony pay for the extra security that they failed to provide.
