campin for da wiiii

I just got to the local game store at 5:00am. There were 9 people in line in front of me, including several people in a tent who had been camping out all night. They’re all here for wii’s, except for two kids who took a taxi over and showed up about ten minutes after me. They want a ps3. Nobody knows how many wii’s are here, although one woman says they told her 6 on Friday.

I’m a little suprised, there’s actually more women here then men.

    At6:30, there are 18 people in line here, and an estimated 75 at the target across the street. Rumor is that they have 7 or 8 wii’s and 6 ps3s.

    7:15, the Target just opened up and told everybody their numbers. They had 18 in stock. A few hopefuls drove over and joined us in line. We’re now at 32 people in line for an estimated 6-9 units.

    Wife came over and brought me coffee.

    At 8:30, a guy from the store showed up and told us the totals. Six wii’s, 2 PS3’s. I probably could have gotten one of the PS3’s, but the kids who showed up after me obviously wanted one more then I did. So, I went back home.

    The sports package that comes with it looks pretty amazing, as do trama center and red steel. I think it’ll be a couple months after Christmas before I see one, the way things are going.
