OKAY! Launch day (at least for the PS3) has come and gone. Sadly, I called the retailer that I used last year and it appears as if only Best Buy, Circuit City, GameStop/EB Games, Wal-Mart and Target were allocated units. My contact says that the shipment will be in, “before the holiday season is over”. I can’t say that I’m really upset. I really wasn’t thrilled with the launch lineup and $600 is a lot to part with for a man with no official job. Anyhow, I’ll be in there soon. But until then, I have to live vicariously through the folks who were fortunate enough to pick one up. (I’ll feel a lot better on Sunday when I go pick up my reserved Wii.) But until then, share!
My guess is that lots of folks are doing one of three things right now.
a) Sleeping in the comfort of a real bed…..but this time with the PS3 box securely held under their right arm…..and with a smile, might I add.
b) Through tired, red eyes, they’re navigating through the menu screens to setup their profile before all the cool names are gone.
c) Taking a few more pictures with the Canon to add to the eBay post asking for approx. $3100. (Don’t believe – go check.)
But I really wanna know what my folks are doing. Talk to me. How did things go? Did you get a system? Any great stories while standing in the launch line? And what about the actual system? Was it worth it all? What are the games like? I want details!
