I would imagine they are all friends or something. Or maybe not, but still, I'd rather be somewhere with other people if I'm going to be there for nine days. The last video game system I owned was the Super Nintendo. I wouldn't walk across the street for a free PS3 if I wasn't able to sell it.


but you can sell it, for more than 100 % profit...anyone that isnt willing to do that is either rich or a moron


Or anyone that has a job and do not need the money and not trying to capitalize on a stupid video game system.

well good luck. but ive heard because of people who have put them on hold or have preordered, ps3 is going to be insanley hard to get. all the stores around my place are doing lotteries so ill probably jump in a line and hope for the best.


the key is going to stores like walmart or toys r us..the game places like gamestop or eb have already had their pre-orders and their over but the big places its just first come, first serve, so i hope i get lucky...but if i drive to the store at 11 pm and see theres already 50 people waiting, then i drive back home..no harm no foul right?

it's not about the system. it's about the 800-1400 bucks you make by selling the system.

Wow. So let me get this straight. Standing in like for 9 days to make 1000 bucks? Why don't you just get a freaking job? Do some real work and you can make 1000 bucks in a week easy.

Well, I hope you campers get nothing if you are camping in order to profit from it.

And I'll wait 6 months and pay retail. ;-D
