    I honestly do not understand these people .. last week we already showed you that a waiting line has been forming at best-buy in the USA pending the release of PS3. Today TGDaily made a report of some...

    Lol. Losers.

    I don't even like waiting in line for more than a couple minutes at the bank. These people seriously need lives.

    Yup. It's getting bad nowadays.

    Walmart even stated that the "bathrooms are off limits" to those who are waiting for the release of the PS3. Apparently some people were caught sleeping in the bathrooms.

    Hah!

    I prefer to wait a year after a console release before even thinking of getting it, makes it much cheaper in the long run.

    Here's an idea: Anyone with a camcorder park outside a Best Buy and record all the madness taking place once the store opens.

    Oh you know there will be some fights about who was in line and where.

    I thought about if I had the money if I would be one of those outside waiting in line at Best Buy or Wal Mart. I kind of doubt I would. But being broke makes that decision easy. ;)

    I could not agree with you more. That's money much better spent on a nice new 8800GTX now or R600 a little later. And you don't have to wait in line to do it......

    I'm guessing that Ebay will be so saturated with these things that the price will plummet. I already know of at least one person who sold his PS3 reservation on Ebay for $1200 and didn't get it today. The buyer has already filed a PayPal claim and he will probably be out a good $200.

    I love these people who go and quit their jobs in order to wait in line thinking they will make a quick buck. Then tonight they will post them on Ebay, get 50 bogus bits and end up selling the console for near-retail price.
