You know, when I wrote the part of the post where I talked about “lining up early — perhaps consider starting on Wednesday…” I never thought that people would have to worry about that happening. The lines have absolutely nothing to do with my story, but even I never thought it would get like this. Take a look at this video in NYC. This is a bit ridiculous for a Wednesday afternoon. Kotaku is taking bets on how quickly the fights start.
If I really wanted to be mean, I’d say, count all of those people times at least $600 each. And I’m sure by 3am, folks will be sleeping. (Ugh.)
I can probably say for absolutely certain that all of these people will not be going home happy. I’m not wishing hateful stuff on anybody…..but considering the early reports on the amount of systems that have been allocated to stores, how can all of those people be getting systems?
I just came inside and it’s getting cold out there too. I hope they bundled up. It’s going to be a LONG two nights. (And even LONGER if they don’t get a system. Wow.)
