wow! i just stopped my local walmart and there were about 15 or 20 people already lined up with tents outside. the funny thing is that there is a huge thunderstorm comming through this area and all the news channels are warning about a tornado! haha that may blow a few campers away and leave room for others. I hope its not this crazy for the wii launch on sun.

Stopped at the local wally world here to get a hard drive at 7am. Same scenario, it was cold and people are sleeping in sleeping bags. This wal-mart hasn't received their shipment in yet. Could be a riot if UPS doesn't deliver... They get 10. Yesterday I was at another walmart while on a trip to a small town. They had the unit set up. I know there is some debate about the PS3. But that thing is friggin wicked.

A lot of stores in my area ended up way short of what they were supposed to get. Several Wal-Marts were expecting 15-20, many ended up with 4, some ended up with none. I knew at the closest Best Buy people had been camping since Tuesday night, that musta sucked because it's rained about 3 inches since Tuesday in middle Tennessee. I swung by the local Wal-Mart to scope it out last night, there were already people in line, and there was no way I was gonna wait in line over 24 hours for a raincheck. I talked to 2 guys there and they said that this was the 4th Wal-Mart they had been to in the area. I went home and called all the Wal-Marts in the area, and all of them had lines last night. So this morning I called Sears, JC Penny, CompUSA, and K-Marts in the area and they aren't getting any. Some of the Wal-Marts didn't even get any. I bet there are some pissed off people in lines around here. I guess no profit for me, I will just wait until spring to buy one for myself.

Stopped by Walmart last night and there were about 15 people camping out in front of the store. It's raining really really hard today. Should be fun for them.

I was talking to one of my co-workers and he was wondering why I will wait in line for one.

Since PS3 is $600 and let's say you make $600 in profit. Now when March 2007 comes along and there's more in stock, you can buy a PS3 for $600 and it will be like you getting it for free!

But now I have to find a place were there's a short line at. I am currently located at a somewhat of a small city but there's two colleges near by and one of them is quite big. There's already a line forming now and I don't get off work until 2!

I may have to drive 50 miles away to a smaller city and see if there's a short line there.

If I end up not getting it, I still have the Nintendo Wii reservations.

I really can't wait for HD porn!
I think the reason people are willing to pay more money for the PS3 is because of the limited supplies and the fact that a Blue Ray player cost $1000. So people are willing to spend more than a $1000 to get a PS3.

So if you are lucky to get the PS3 for $600 than yes, it's cheaper alternative to the Blue Ray Player.

Probably by March of 2007, it will be easier to get the PS3 and a Blue Ray player will be under $500.

CompUSA will get some in but the catch is, you have to buy a high definition t.v. from them.

Anybody who camps out for a game machine for more than 2 hours needs to have their head examined...then afterwards taken behind the barn and shot.

I dunno, if I was going to make a 400% profit on a console I'd camp out a little longer than 2 hours (but not days, that is odd).

Anyone that would pay 400% mark up for that piece of crap is mentally insane. Anyone that's a TRUE PLAYAH knows that YOU DO NOT BUY SONY THE DAY IT COMES OUT.

Talk about garbage. My first 3 playstations all needed to be suspended upsidedown after about 6months of use...and those where $200.

$600...what a joke. Remember how great the DVD players where in PS2 and Xbox? Horrible. Almost as bad as VHS. No different with this generation 1 Blu Ray nonsense.
