Word! I'm sticking with my 360! Sounds like Sony is shooting themselves in the foot with the prices and the delays.
So, did anyone on here actually get a PS3.

Well the price will most likely drop and I see the justification for the system once better/more games come out. Right now however.... NOPE. You kidding?

As for xbox... I play enough games right now, ask Hope between my pc and the PS2...

So me and Sam (shortfuse) went with some friends yesterday to Best Buy. Wes was over there as well for this. Sam and I didn't stand in line, we pretty much came to see the action. I must admitt both me and him were extremly shocked of just how many people came out for this system. It was insane and the line was huge. My friends that waited in line didn't win the raffle though. Funny thing of the evening was, when I was driving the Evo around the parking lot. Sam noticed that I attract more attention with people staring than when I drive haha . I guess I make the Evo look good

Speaking of the Wii, I would like to try and get ahold of one of those, does any one know what the stores are doing for these?

Probably the same as the PS3. Except there will be more of them. stay away from best buys and wal-marts. most people will go/camp there. also, call first.

Saturday night!

I can't speak for every toys r us, best buy etc. but I know that the toys r us in my area will be doing a midnight release!!

As for the ps3, people started lining up on like wednesday, so I found out that this one best buy isn't letting people line up till midnight of release day. Come to find out that they did a raffle, which me and my friend lost. It was insane, like watching people win the lottery. That's really what it was, as most people are selling it on ebay for copious amounts of money. A really hot girl won the raffle and jumped up and people were like "wtf, she probably doesn't even know what it is". I found that pretty hilarious.

Well, the exact opposite happened on Ebay. Instead of driving prices up, they drove prices down. The average sale price on Thursday morning was $2500.00. Two days before that the average sale price was $1900.00. Today the average sale price is at $1200.00 with some selling as low as $900.00 now. Over 17,000 PS3's listed on Ebay, if you really wanted one, you can now get one for just a few hundred over the original sale price.

Hope to get a Wii at the local Fredmeyers. That system I want to keep, something to do during the holidays.

I'm heading into Anchorage to work for a few hours, then I'm chillin' around till I can go get my Wii. I got an automated call last night from Gamestop saying my Wii will be ready for pickup at midnight tonight, so that's cool. Too bad I didn't get paid this weekend like I was supposed to and can't buy any games.

Hmm should of figured that would of happened... Supply and Demand changed itself I see...the supply became larger thus dropping prices..hmm very interesting to see it turn the tables like that.

Was number 63 in line (out of 75) at the Dimond Fred Meyer. Stood in line and froze my ass off for about an hour and a half. Haven't played it yet, eating some food first. Only decent game there was Super monkey ball two. I really need to find some extra controllers though. Heading to Best Buy tomorrow to get some more games. They have plenty there. They will also open there doors at 9AM for their release. Over 100 systems there. Got that info from a Best Buy Employee that was with his friend at the Fred Meyer release.

Um, Zelda?

I went to gamestop at 11:50, took care of my pre-order and picked up zelda (I have Banana Blitz there too,but only enough for one game, i'll get Banana Blitz tomorrow when I finally get paid). Stood in line. They started at 12:01, got my system and was in my car headed back to girdwood at 12:10pm. Got home, set 'er up, made a Mii of me, played some Wii sports while my dog looked at me funny. Went to bed around 4am. I showed my mom the Mii and some Wii sports this morning, she was digging it. Gonna start Zelda right now though. Yay

I'm super excited for monkey ball, but, i could only afford one game at launch and that was zelda because i already had paid(traded in games) for it.

This week I'mgoing to pick up a internet adapter thingy. Gotta go to storage and dig out a couple of my old Gamecube games, mainly Resident Evil 4. I'll try to find an extra controller and nunchuck too because I'm taking it over to the familys on thanksgiving.
