    Damn. I hate to imagine what he could have done if he had a Super Scope instead.

    I think you would need to bring in the military, if he had that piece of hardware.

    Peace,

    Man... I just love my country!

    The funny thing is that the original article (here, in portuguese) never mentions that it's a light gun; in fact, they don't even report it was a fake weapon at all. All they say is that he was "(...)standing on the roof, branding a pistol". Damn journalists!

    EDIT:Just showed the article to a friend, and his reply was priceless: "Well, the hostage lady DOES look like a videogame level boss..."

    "The Light Phaser, the light gun that shipped with the Sega Master System, must be fairly common in Brazil, considering how incredibly popular the 8-bit console was in the country—it was one of Sega's strongest markets."

    This was more or less the issue that first popped into my head when I read this; that the "weapon" wasn't more quickly identified in a Master System stronghold like Brazil?

    I can imagine some of the younger municipaises looking through binoculars going "Wait...what?"

    Although the SMS was indeed very popular here, gaming in general is not a big part of brazilian culture, since most of our population don't have access to that kind of entertainment in the first place. So, it's unlikely that someone in the inevitable curious crowd around the site would recognize it as a Light Phaser - after all, all this damn kids care about these days is the PS2 . Someone, however, must have noticed it wasn't a real pistol.

    That, and journalists here are lazy sons of bitches. Even if someone actually NOTICED it was a bogus gun, he/she wouldn't bother to find out anything particular about it - which is a shame, because it's an interesting fact, IMO. In fact, not even mentioning it was a fake weapon is a crass mistake, to begin with- and, as far as the internet goes (and as far as I read), none of the brazilian news sites reported it.

    I doubt it, since he was careless enough to cut the cord off...

    I'm imagining this guy all decked out in Sega gear. The 3D glasses, two light phasers, a Menacer strapped to his side. All the while flinging Game Gears like batarangs and chucking 32Xs like grenades at the police.

    ... The world never ceases to amaze me!

    At least people like this guy keep things interesting and it's nice to see SEGA getting some free promotion
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    Better yet, an epic battle between somebody wearing that vs. somebody in AVGN's Nintendo Suit.

    For some reason almost all of my teachers and employers look like end level bosses as well. Although the woman probably feels stupid as hell, atleast he didn't use an orange and grey Nes zapper. How could you possibly explain that to your friends and ever hope to be taken serious again?

    All kidding aside, there have been several incidents in the US were kids and men would use video game light guns to rob places. After one of them got shoot and killed by the cops(he was a very young boy, probably 14) they decided to stop producing black light guns in the US. Thats why Time Crisis comes with bright ass orange colored guns.....because apparently all the people being robbed(and the cops that shot that kid) never noticed the extension cords on the gun controllers. And yes, they still had them connected.
