Depressed and unemployed, Erik Salvador Ayala from Milwaukee went on a shooting spree in downtown Portland, then went on to shoot himself. He’s still in critical condition, but he left a note for his roomie saying that he could have all that he owned, including his most prized possession – his 60GB backwards compatible PS3.
Depressed and unemployed, Erik Salvador Ayala from Milwaukee went on a shooting spree in downtown Portland, then went on to shoot himself. Nine people were shot, two of them were killed. Ayala survived, but he’s in critical condition.
He left a note for his roommate, Mike Delisle, saying that he could have all that he owned, even giving his personal info, such as his social security number and bank account number if ever Delisle should ever need them. Among the things that Ayala left Delisle is his most prized possession – his 60GB backwards compatible PS3.
In the note he left to Delisle, Ayala gave his ol’ buddy more info about his special PS3 to help him make money out of it. Here’s a part of that note:
You know my ps3 is special. Similar USED ps3’s go for AT LEAST $450-$500. Our landlord guy wants a ps3 like mine. Let him know that $400 would be a GOOD deal. If he doesn’t want it, format the drive by going to Settings>System>Format Utility. You can say it “comes with the latest firmware software” to help market it on the internet. In case you don’t know, it’s the special “100% backwards compatible” (60 GB) ps3.
You have to hand it to the guy – despite having issues about money and society, he still manages to talk about his PS3 with such loving detail on a suicide note. Now judging by the detail on the note, it seems that the new owner, Mark Delisle, has little idea as to how valuable his new console is. They didn’t give any info on how to reach the guy (yes, I thought about it hahaha), so let’s just hope that the next owner will give it a nice home.
Why that PS3 is valuable:
