what a joke


There have been people camped in tents outside my local best buy since sunday. I have a 360 and am perfectly happy with it - the games are great and i haven't had one problem with the thing.

How the hell can you face your family and say I am gonna go sleep in a tent in a parking lot for 6 days straight to make sure I get this video game - then once they get it they are gonna be in front of the TV for 6 months

so pathetic

I wouldve camped out for a month if I knew I could have sold it for thousands of dollars

the best part is that if these people waited for a month or so, they could walk into a retailer, buy one and leave. no tents, peeing in a bottle or being assaulted by men with guns.

god almighty these people are stupid.

One of the Best Buys that was on the news the other night is about 3 minutes from my house.

At least there's a Dunkins and Papa Gino's in that mall. They won't starve.

That doesn't make any sense. The bidding was up to $3K and then some jackass bid $14999, why would you bid that much for a video game system.

Wow I'm happy with my PS2 and Xbox which I play sparingly. Don't need to waste $600+ on some stupid gaming system which I wouldn't play that much.

Priorities are where it's at and some of these people have a sickness. Instead of feeding their families, they spend all of their money on games. Sheesh

Damn. Why didn't I invest the $500 on a PS3 and then sell it off for 10 times that?

I think 5 or 10 grand to some people is like a hundred bucks to most of us. It's not even a stupid financial move for them to make sure little Johnny gets this before his friends or for the holidays or what have you.
The folks who have this kind of dough don't wait in lines or go out in the weather either....they make a few clicks and wait for FedEx to buzz at the gate.

For 15 grand, i'd camp out in front of a best buy for a few days and take all the elements of danger that come with it. That's almost a semester of school for me - I'm imagining what life would be like if my parents weren't breathing down my neck that it's "their investment!" Totally a fair point on their part, but no college kid wants to hear that.

my only complaint about the 360 is that it is pretty loud. the fan runs constantly.

YEah that is true... PC is pretty much better. Of course there will be the exclusive perks that console salways get, look at the NHL 07 on 360 as to all the other versions (Will PS3 have the new one?) but are those extras worth thousands of dollars? hell theres perks that PC can give you far better than a console... you know those... huge 3 wide screens, 360 degree head gear, large actual airplane like controls... just to name a few... i guess its all in the marketing though...
