I don't mean the software kind.

Fun story: When I used to work at Gamestop back in the dark ages people would trade in systems (ps2 and XBox) that were infested with roaches. Sometimes we wouldn't know until days later!

I even sold one to a customer! He was some dirty dude who was probably on drugs and didn't care since it was the last used ps2 we had in the store. Ah, good times.

To clarify, it was not a man but thank you for the ps3, I still have it.

I once opened the back of an original PS2 and found a years-dead gathering of spiders. That wasn't pleasant.

I worked in the VAIO repair center in san diego. Can confirm, we open the case thinking it's a normal unit, see roaches, go: WTF!?!, close the case, seal it in biohazard labels, sanitize our hands and stations, and ship it back.

It's not weirdness to not repair the unit, it's a health issue for the workers.

At first I wondered how the hell they could get in there, but then I realized, they travel through really small cracks in households so getting into a piece of electronic shouldn't be an issue.

Those instructions are only for the PS4. It's fine sending a Vita full of insects to them.

JRPG in a school environment, with school activities as side quests. It's close enough to trick people into thinking it's like P4G -GirlsHteMyFace/Sen no Kiseki

My Dad used to fix VCRs back in the day. He used to have issues with roaches and we had to have the house sprayed once a month for the nasty little bastards.

All that once was will be.
