I swung by a mall on my way in to work - at about 4:45a, the Best Buy had about 15 (give or take 5) and the Target had about 10. I figured that would make my chances of getting one slim, so I just came into work.
Some people are that dedicated man. You can't knock it though. I know I would have never waited outside since Monday. I watched the Ps3 launch party on Gamespot which was held in New York City. Some interesting stuff. They gave away FREE Ps3's to the first 3 people in line then raffled off another 5 or 6. Lucky bastards.
Oh, ABC, I'm not knocking it - hell, if I could get away with it, I'd spend a week in line, too, but I got all kinds of RL things that wouldn't let me.
I don't there's anyone on this forums who would disagree with waiting in line for 5 or 6 days to make a $2,000 profit at the end of the week. As for just wanting to play it... well, that seems a little obsessive (but what do I know - I'm just obsessing over the $$$)
