Update: Back and very pissed. Me and my wife went out to the mall. Arrived around 10PM. Saw what appeared to be a small line forming and asked the security guard about it. He said they were being kicked out. no lines until 11PM. Fine, this is how it's supposed to be. Went to Chili's to eat and hang. Saw a few more groups who thought of the same thing. We were all chatting when one guy gets a call around 10:35PM from one of his friends that is walking around the area. He said a large mob went over to BB. The police and security couldn't handle them and just said, go ahead form the line. No order, no 11PM, pushing/shoving allowed, etc... We figure, they may be trying to trick them or something. nope. They get a head count, take the first 45, tell them there are 30 units, and tell everyone else to leave. We start walking over there to see what's up and get stopped by a police officer who says that the line is closed. it turns out that there was close to 400 people hanging around the residential neighborhood about 1 block away and they were causing problems, such as peeing on lawns, making noise, etc... so they decided to just get the line over with.
If I had gone at 11PM and just didn't make it to the line, no big deal, but to have a bunch of people follow the rules and get screwed, while people who not only break the rules that were setup, but were also breaking the law, get to the line is ridiculous. I don't know, maybe instead of letting the mob rule, maybe they should have just, maybe, upheld the law and started arresting people?

Anyway, I'm pissed....

See, these stories are just pissing me off and i'm sick of it.  Pisses me off Punisher to read this.  Can't imagine how pissed you gotta be, damnit.

We gotta be getting near Armageddon because i just can't believe what i'm reading about what people are doing for a freakin console system.  What in the world is going on!  I was reading a thread over at CAG about reports of entire families, including small children sleeping in tents outside stores for these systems.

The madness!!  The end is near!  REPENT i tell ya, REPENT!

This situation is crazy, but like driving by a car accident, I can't look away!

Honestly, a PS3 scalper's life is probably worth less than the $2000 you could get for the system on eBay.

Anyway, my night camo facepainting is almost done, so I'll probably be out for the rest of the night.  Will report back on my muggings and murders in the morning.  If anyone wants a specific human body part -- organ, limb, ear, whatever -- PM me quick.

I'm watching the launch event in New York. This is absolutely crazy. Most of the people they are interviewing are scalpers looking to get 2-3 grand for the system.

Lol, now people are pulling out weed and smoking up. So many low life scum at this thing.

And more crazy PS3 happenings:

Gunman rob store of all PS3s
10 to 12 people in line robbed at gunpoint
Another California store shut down due to crazyness
Police break up another fight in line

One of the guys in line at the New York event said there was an incident with a lot of swearing and some fighting going on. He actually got pushed back a hundred spots or so due to people breaking in line. It's crazy what people will do for a little cash.

Hopefully people in line for the Wii in a couple of days are a bit more civil and the bigger supply will keep these lowlife punks from possibly hurting innocent people that just want to play a new system.

I'm starting to wonder if the bottom drops out of the PS3 reselling market in the next few days. Reuters reported this:

"As of Thursday morning, 2,297 PS3s had sold on eBay at an average price of $1,608 and 698 additional units were still up for bid, according to data from eBay."

If the majority of the people in line now are looking to sell their PS3s, in the next few days we'll see the number of units available on Ebay/Craigslist jump significantly. Will the demand hold up when there are 8,000-12,000 PS3s on Ebay? I imagine a lot of the early purchases are coming from the percentage of the population for which $1,500 for a console is an insignificant amount of money, but is that demographic all that large?

Furthermore, I don't get much of a sense that huge numbers of people are itching to actually play with a PS3, so much as to make a quick $1,000 by selling their system on Ebay. The speculation is fueling the feeding frenzy tonight.

With all the other console purchase options out there (a fleshed out XBox 360 field, Wii, waiting), I really start to wonder whether the US PS3 reselling market might tank in a similar fashion to the Japanese market.

Yeah, it got ugly in my town today as well.  Someone broke into EB last night and stole 4 Wiis, 3 PS3s, some 360s, a few DS Lites and some Zunes.  What's worse is that it appears that it was an inside job by mall security, at least that's the angle they're taking on it.  The burglers broke into an outside mall entrance, got into the back halls of the mall and went straight to the unmarked EB back door.

This is really sad and you can't help but blame it on Sony.  Sure this is probably a legitimate shortage, but maybe they could have waited until mid December and had a lot more systems available for launch.

yeah but you live in Michigan, outside of Detroit no less... like a couple hundred miles from the armpit of America, Ohio... :p

I would be amazed if anything like this happens over the weekend for the Wii launch. I don't think people have the same intentions of selling the machine online like the PS3.

it's 1am in Arizona, monitoring eBay and it's just amazing.  as more and more units are in-hand, the price is going crazy.  Seems like the minimum is 1500 and the ones that are ending soonest range from 1600 to 5000.  5000!!!  eek

funny thing...I work at a hotel and I'm here until after 7am.  My secutiry guard has some really authentic looking uniforms and he carries a piece (even though he's not supposed to).  We were contemplating going to Best Buy or somewhere and telling them they need to clear ut until opening... then get us 1st in line.  No, we won't really do it (can't afford the $600 right now) but it's a pretty good idea...

I seriously doubt that any of these people are actually gamers.  People only do crazy shit like that for one thing-money.  It sorta brings a little more perspective to the whole 'it's my PS3 so I'll Ebay it for $2000 if I like' mentality.  If you Ebay your PS3 or Xbox 360 then perhaps you are contributing to the downfall of society (indirectly of course).

One could almost say that the PS3 is already far superior to the XBOX 360 because nobody ever rioted for a 360.  Of course, someone could make the counterpoint that PS3 fans are far less civilized than 360 fans smile

I think when the 360 came out, we hadn't seen that level of ebay inflation before.  The 360 ebay market showed what kind of potential there was for scalping them, but nobody knew it on release day, so you got crazy gamers waiting overnight for one, not crazy scalpers.  Now, there's quite a bit more money on the line, leading people to do dumb things.

Personally, I think it's pretty deplorable, the things that are going on over these things.  I wonder if the Sony execs are high-fiving each other over having created this much hysteria, and if they are, I hope they choke on their pudding.

Right, Chaz.  Last year's 360 action is the cause and effect of what we're seeing with the PS3 now.  Before now, we only had to compete against other gamers for these systems, now we're having to compete against gamers and every swinging dick who has the gleam in his eye to make a fast buck.  Anytime you have the potential for "easy money", the low lifes will come out of the woodwork.

I'm definitely getting my PS3 today and it hasn't even entered my mind to sell it.  There is really nothing I want to play on it except for Resistance and Motorstorm, and Motorstorm doesn't even come out for a few more months.

The 360 created this mess, but the PS3 is going to solidify the fact that console launches will never be the same again.  Even the Wii launch is going have a little of this.

That's not true. People knew the 360 was in short supply....they also knew that people that won the various contests were selling their 360's for over $1000. There were a bunch of people outside Best Buy on 360 launch day that were there for the express purpose of selling it. Not at the level of the PS3, but there were a bunch there that were only there to sell it.

I agree with you Hetz that there was some eBay action going on back then, but I think more people now realize how much profit can be made on eBay with a short supply system launch because of what I happened with the 360.  This isn't because the PS3 is some super system.  It is merely because more are informed that a nice profit can be made.

I was just skimming a couple of reviews and I noticed the Gamespot review of Call of Duty 3 and the IGN review of Need for Speed: Carbon each indicate that the 360 versions look better than the PS3 versions of these 2 games. Huh? I thought the PS3 was the more powerful system. Is this just due to developer inexperience with the newer PS3? Will this "trend" (sorry to call 2 reviews a trend) reverse itself as the PS3 ages?

Yeah, I heard about that as well. I am sure it is due to the inexperience and rushed timetable to get the game out for launch.

Horsepower wise, it's nearly a wash. If the PS3 does one thing better, the 360 does another thing better. At the end of the day, it's arguable that either system is a lock to produce the "best looking" of a multi-platform release.

Then why the hell isn't the game launching in all regions at the same time, or at least both US and Japan, that is just dumb to not launch them together.

I'm definitely getting my PS3 today and it hasn't even entered my mind to sell it.  There is really nothing I want to play on it except for Resistance and Motorstorm, and Motorstorm doesn't even come out for a few more months.

 thumbsup

Motorstorm will be out next month in Japan....and it's region free!  icon_biggrin I've got mine preordered and will have it on Dec 7th!

Is it going to be completely in English?  If not, I'll pass. 

Yes, I believe so. There are options in nearly every PS3 game to switch between languages. Blu-Ray's greater storage space for the win!  icon_smile

Then why the hell isn't the game launching in all regions at the same time, or at least both US and Japan, that is just dumb to not launch them together.

I  believe the Japanese version won't have online while the US version will.

Yep, most of them are f'ing lowlife pieces of crap that they are interviewing....
Yep.  People that sell consoles at launch on eBay are scum. 

Pretty amazing though.  To bad Sony didn't actually deliver enough, or Microsoft last year.

Never mind the riots...

In Putnam, Ct., two armed thugs tried to rob of line of people waiting to buy PS3 early Friday and shot one who refused to give up the money, authorities said.

Guy in the hospital now...

Being shot over this just crazy.
