XBox (Games) It's funny. Laugh.
CivilianHero writes "The New York Post is reporting that a carry-on case, with an Xbox 360 inside, sparked a terror alert to go off at MacArthur Airport after several x-ray screenings revealed the case to be containing suspicious wires. That section of the airport was cleared and the bomb squad was deployed to investigate. That's one more reason why Xbox 360 is the bomb for Games.net and Joystiq.
XBOX BOMB SCARE AT AIRPORT
By ANGELINA CAPPIELLO December 28, 2005 -- A passenger toting an Xbox 360 in a carry-on case sparked a terror alert at MacArthur Airport on Long Island yesterday, forcing a terminal to be evacuated.
Officials say the Chicago-bound flier, worried that his game console might be swiped if he checked it, instead put it in a metal case that he carried through security checkpoints.
At 12:15 p.m., the container passed through an X-ray machine, and screeners thought it might have held a bomb.
"The package looked to be suspicious with wires running through it," said airport spokeswoman Michele Remsen.
