Good luck getting one. There are already lines formed since last night. Each store is only getting between 4-8 PS3's.

Glad I got mine at EB. I only had to wait in line for 1 hour and I am #1 on the preorder list.  nod

I'll go up at opening and possibly preorder a Wii, supposedly TRU is getting a ton of units, so I am not too worried.

Holy shit! A nerd shanty town has been built in front of the Toys R Us near me. I'm wodering if the people in line are buying the console for themselve or are Ebay flippers. I don't get it though. Are there people that despearate for $500 in profit that they would do this? I can think of easier ways to make $500 that don't involve sacrificing my dignity.

Can you please tell Me about these easy ways of making $500?  Sitting outside for a while seems pretty easy to me!

No - that's the picture of what happened at Toys R Us. So many people were lined up for the pre-orders that the store exceeded it's bandwidth.  :icon_eek:

Sit outside of any place that's selling a PS3, buy it, and then turn around and sell it on eBay for double easily.

The family just happened to be by TRU today and we went inside right after it opened.  I asked the people there how many Wiis and PS3s they had gotten and they said 4 PS3s and 12 Wiis and they sold out right away.

My wife went by this morning and the manager said that if you wanted one then you would have had to have been in line by noon yesterday.

Someone should have gone by the lines an hour before opening and passed out exlax brownies just to watch the hilarity ensue  icon_twisted

Thanks for reminding me that I forgot to mention that when I asked when the first person in line got there, I was told 5AM Saturday.
