Check out the article here on Kotaku — funny stuff. Some of the Kotaku kids went to check out what was happening down at the Burbank Best Buy and apparently twenty people formed a line and had been waiting there……FOR FOUR WHOLE DAYS…..and the cops made em go home. Talk about pissed off? I’d be livid. But the thing that I can’t understand for the life of me is this: Why would folks go to such extremes to wait on a Best Buy line, but just a month ago when EB Games let you preorder your PS3, the same kind of madness didn’t ensue? Perhaps folks want to wait ONLY to insure that they’ll walk home with a unit, but not to pre-order? I dunno. All I know is that this is pretty messed up for the folks who got sent home. (And pretty funny! I’m sorry, I can’t help it. Funniest post on the Kotaku forum was from reader Vexorg, “How to waste three days of your precious time on this planet in three easy steps!” Hilarious.)
