I enjoy them. Not sure why but I do.

I find them about as exciting as watching dogsh*t dry out.

They're okay. *shrugs*

#5 Posted by CHOASXIII (14628 posts) -

No, I could care less to watch someone else unbox an item.

They're not good usually, spending too long showing the manual or reading numbers on the outside of the box itself, those never good.

I used to. Back then when the PSP was announced I went ape sh*t on that I was a teen with no job and it was fun saving up and watching every preview and unboxing videos. Before I started posting, I still remember the On the Spot where Ricardo, Ryan M, and Rich Gallup had Japanese PSP's playing Ridge Racer. I also went crazy for the Wii. Nintendo was so slow at releasing info for it and I loved all the unboxing videos for it. I even lined up 5 hours for it.

The're okay. I liked them.

I like them for the same reason that I like watching porn.

I find unboxing videos stupid. I LOVE the joy of opening a brand spanking new item, because rarely I get one. I bought a pvr yesterday and didn't get that fancy new-thing feeling though, unfortunately. Probably 'cause it cost me money and I didn't want to think about that.

I don't like watching unboxing videos. However, I did like unboxing my mail order bride when she arrived last week.

It feels exhilarating. I recently received a package of Deadpool Classics #1-5, thus completing my collection from #1 to #7. I haven't been this happy in some time now.

This makes me want to buy a Lego set. Don't know why but I need to build something... :P

I find them incredibly silly and pointless unless they've received an advance copy of something.

#19 Posted by Fightingfan (38011 posts) -
I only watch em if I'm pondering on buying an expensive item.

Yeah, i enjoy those vids specially if they're informative.

I think they are useful for a product you might be interested in buying. Has made the decision for me when deciding on two different monitors, for example.

I like them if they're not one-handed, shaky ass unboxings.
#26 Posted by WhiteKnight77 (12018 posts) -

I do not see a need to watch someone else open something up on video.

He is wanting to play hide the salami.

yes i love watching them. it's nerd porn.
#29 Posted by Ringx55 (5967 posts) -
It's a good way to the actual item in compassion to others.
#30 Posted by bobaban (10560 posts) -
Depends on the item. If its a gaming item I'm interested in buying I might watch the unboxing. You get a better perspective of what you're getting. Last unboxing video I watched was TE arcade stick.

I hate it when your actually trying to find footage of whatever thing your buying to make a decision and then you find out that it's just an unboxing video like guitars or music equipment or games on rare occasions and you never actually see them using it or playing it.
#34 Posted by Suzy_Q_Kazoo (9901 posts) -

I'd prefer a review video to an unboxing one.

#35 Posted by cfstar (1979 posts) -

I do.

Unboxing something new and watching someone else do it is strangely satisfying for me.

#36 Posted by klusps (10381 posts) -

Usually I watch them to see what comes in the box, what size something is, etc.

#37 Posted by nilzg (753 posts) -
Nope, hate unboxing stuff myself it's a waste of time.. everything should just be wrapped in old newspapers so we can open the stuff faster and have less junk to throw away
#38 Posted by Dogswithguns (10782 posts) -
Every now and then.. like recently the new PS3 Super Slim. something about unboxings.. it's c'mon open it!!! open it!!!
#39 Posted by NiKva (8768 posts) -
Unboxing videos is the dumbest trend to hit Youtube :/

People actually watch that? Sounds about exciting as an Aussiee thread....
#41 Posted by SaintLeonidas (26342 posts) -
Don't watch enough to have an opinion on them.

I take video's of big expensive items like Instruments or electronics. But I don't put them on the Internet. I do it just in case there is damage during shipping I have proof that it wasn't caused by me.

I don't like them.

#46 Posted by BPoole96 (22802 posts) -

If it's something like a collector's edition for a game with items aside from the game box than I will watch. People that unbox a single game and show the manual and stuff are just dumb.

#47 Posted by lilasianwonder (5964 posts) -

Never really saw a point in watching them.

#48 Posted by cheese_game619 (13316 posts) -
hey look an aussiepet topic i guess i better post
#49 Posted by Philokalia (3238 posts) -

I like it when I unbox my own packages or items.
