American Calls The Police Because Someone Changed His PS4 Settings

The Alexandria Echo Press reported on 6 December that a local resident had called the police claiming that someone had broken into his house and maliciously changed the settings on his PS4.

The blip reads:

"A resident on West Lake Cowdery Road reported he believes someone came into his house and changed the settings on his PlayStation 4."

Naturally in stories such as these the implication is that the local resident was more aggrieved about the senseless act of brutality towards his next-gen console, not the fact that someone had broken into his own house.

Is that the case? Well we're in no position to pass judgement, only you can decide what's worse than having the 'auto-download' setting turned on without your permission.
