Nope she is there to prove a point to good old dad that turns 60 in 27 minutes.
Yes sitting there for hours now waitng .
I did stop to say hello to these brave people and mention the word " Want " .It`s all about "Want" and if it gets to hard then they couldn`t of wanted to bad.
I do know # 4 that`s in line and she'll do it just to prove a point about the word "Want" to me.
Cause see I have taught my daughters to " Never Give Up " .

I've been checking on all the people during the day and not one time was anyone that was in the line inside. They have to be outside . Waht time was the little baby there ?
Was it a cute child boy or girl ? Just thought I`d ask?
Cause grandma brought up our granddaughter so her mom could kiss her good night. I don`t think that`s insane one bit .It`s called careing for a child.

I can't believe people are actually waiting in line to purchase one of these. There is nothing that I would need or want that would put me outside in a line for 36 hours. Just seems crazy to me.

Correction, I found the story: Ebay is "restricting sales" of the new PS.

eBay Restricts Sale of PlayStation 3
By RACHEL KONRAD, AP

SAN JOSE, Calif. (Nov. 16) - People pining for the sleek PlayStation 3 gaming console might find shortages on eBay as well.

The unfettered online marketplace for such items as Elvis memorabilia and Ferraris is imposing restrictions on the PS3, which is expected to become one of the hottest holiday gifts when it hits stores Friday.

Only established eBay Inc. vendors - those who have racked up comments from at least 50 previous customers and have positive ratings of at least 98 out of 100 points - can list PS3s before Friday. Each vendor can only list only one PS3 per eBay account.

The listing must include a photo of the pre-order receipt, and the seller must guarantee shipment within 30 days from the date of purchase. Before Friday, PS3s can be listed on eBay only in auction formats - not as "buy it now" items.

Potential buyers, trying to avoid long lines, rain checks and empty-handed sales clerks on Friday, have already bid up PS3s to $2,300. The suggested retail price is $500 for a basic PS3 with a 20-gigabyte drive and $600 for a version with 60 gigabytes, built-in wireless and a Blu-ray DVD player for high-definition video.



By Justin Sullivan, Getty Images
Sony had billed PlayStation 3 as being compatible with the previous PlayStation machines.


Sony Corp., which has already delayed the PS3 launch twice, expects to have 400,000 PS3s available for its U.S. launch. EBay listed 3,144 PS3s or related items by Wednesday morning.

The restrictions, part of eBay's standing policy for all "pre-sale" items, also apply to Nintendo Co.'s competing Wii console, which goes on sale Sunday. EBay had 2,354 listings for Wiis and related items.

Microsoft Corp. launched its Xbox 360 console last year.

"We've seen a history with highly anticipated game consoles in extremely short supply during their initial launch," eBay spokeswoman Catherine England said. "With the Xbox, we saw a high number of well-intentioned sellers unable to meet obligations due to restricted supply."

Description (revised)

Item Specifics - Video Game Systems
Platform: PS3 Format: NTSC (US, Canada)
Bundled Items: Accessories, Game(s)
Condition: New


Here is your chance to make your kids VERY Happy this holiday season! For sale in this auction is the rights to my preordered 60GB PS3 game system plus 2 Controllers and the launch game of your choice. So you will be all set to set it up and play as soon as you receive it! I will be picking this system up in Montreal on 11/17 (launch day) and will immediately ship it to you via the method you prefer! There are only 400,000 of these that are going to made available in North America so as launch day nears there is sure to be mass hysteria, which you wont have to worry about after you win this auction!

I was 5th in line at one of the EB Games in Quebec and they will have 8-12 systems available to them, so I am, I mean, You are guaranteed to get one on launch day!

The next batch from Sony will likely not hit store shelves till February or March of next year, so this is a great opportunity to pick up the #1 Christmas gift of 2006 BEFORE Christmas!

Please see http://www.us.playstation.com/PS3/default.html for official information from Sony and for specs on the Console.



Screenshot from actual game footage (Fight Night 3) for PS3..PRETTY SWEET!

For that amount of money, I could make my kids "happy for the holidays" by taking them all to Hawaii or to Alaska to have a family Christmas with my son in the Army

Also, this would be a good one for PT's "Kids as Consumers" thread.

Personally, I don't think $500 is a bargain. It's a friggin video game. Instead of blowing $500 on a video game, I would say buy something that will promote learning. When I was a kid, my choice in presents were books. Maybe if more kids spent time reading, they would be better educated. maybe if more kids spent time reading, there wouldn't be the school shootings.

Actually, I wsa just saying I would NOT pay $4,500 for one, but I would also not pay $500....not a chance.
My kids hated me because I would make them wait until the prices fell...lol. Christmas or no Christmas. The $500 would have wiped out my Christmas budget for all three kids...and then some, some years.

Hey SBJ...I reread the statement and it says:
Only established eBay Inc. vendors - those who have racked up comments from at least 50 previous customers and have positive ratings of at least 98 out of 100 points - can list PS3s before Friday. Each vendor can only list only one PS3 per eBay account.

The key word is BEFORE friday meaning all people who opted for the pre-sale of the console and they were trying to stop fraud of people "saying" they had the system then taking the $$ and running... Which means after tomorrow ANYONE can sell PS3's on E-Bay... I knew e-bay wouldn't miss out on this cash cow

Yeh, that is why I said "correction"...lol. My son must have just saw "Ebay restricting sales of PS3..." and not read any further.

I still aint buying one. The kids are old enough to buy one if they can afford one.
They are getting gift certs or cash this year, except for little things for the stockings and such. They are all their own people and know better what they want and where the money can be better used.
I can spoil my grandson though.

I just came from WM and sure enough, there are about 2 dozen people sitting outside the doors. Some covered up with sheets of plastic, others with thermos'. Wouldn't it be nice if they were lining up like that to volunteer in the community to help the elderly, disabled or infirmed?

The sad part is the kids who actually might want one of these for Christmas, and their parents don't have 3000-4000 dollars to buy one....who would pay that?????

Saying no to your child once in a while is not the worst thing in the world.
Most of them are just mesmerized by ads on TV for all the crap they don't really need anyways.
And most if not all have no clue about the value of money until they are old enough to get a job.
Then they learn some harsh realities very quickly,things like taxes for instance.
When they get jobs and come to learn how much they have to work to earn that $600 they usually aren't in such a hurry to go blow it on a game console.

Just a caught a brief clip of a news report that someone was shot in the line at a Walmart (not here in NY) while waiting for a PS3. Someone apparently approached the line demanding money, and a man resisted and was shot.
Have to fly...will see if I can find the story later.

Up-date I just made $2000,00 profit on ours. Not bad for 36 hrs of work now was it. And who is a fool.
You over educated people don`t even make that kind of money. All brains and no will power or is it the golden spoon some are born with that does it?

I feel like going to WM with a sign saying "this is NUTS--->" pointing to those crazy people.
I could see if they were waiting in line for food or medicine for their families but come on...toys?

Why the surprise.....the *craze* happens every year.... GUILT is a wonderful thing...parents feel guilty for treating their kids like crap all year and ignoring them .... so they run out buy some big high priced in demand gift for them.... and then the become *parents of the year* and they can happily live guilt free for the next year

"In Connecticut, two armed thugs who got wise to the PS3's high price and tried to rob a line of people waiting outside a Putnam Wal-Mart store at 3 a.m. One person who refused to give up the money was shot, state police said. In Lexington, Kentucky, four people waiting outside a Best Buy were hit by BB pellets, though none was seriously injured, according to television station WKYT, whose own reporter was hit as she interviewed buyers."

From the following news article that is quite lengthy about the whole PS3 craze.
