Look, sometimes you just need to play video games real bad.
The original story appears to be gone from the radio station’s blog, but the pickup on The Oregonian, as reported by Kotaku, is still up. Apparently, a man decided it would be a super great idea to plug his PS4 into one of those big ol’ airport monitors next to the flight schedule, the ones that usually show maps or ads. And then he proceeded to play… Apex Legends for the entirety of the Portland International Airport to see.
According to Kotaku’s report, the “incident [was] heard on the local emergency scanner as a ‘hijacking’ of the display.” The story does have a good ending, as airport authorities were able to convince the man to unplug and move on, though hilariously, he did ask to finish his match. (They said no.)
I honestly cannot decide whether this is weirdly wholesome or an early candidate for this is why we can’t have nice things. As far as gamer stunts go, this one seems pretty harmless.
