Default PS3

So whos gonna be goin to Wal Mart or best buy and waitin in line to get one? I am... but not to play it, i'm gonna buy it then sell it on ebay... it costs just about 600 and they are goin for about 1600 - 2000 on ebay... i am going after i get outta class at 4:00 and gonna wait in line until 12:01 am when they go on sale. Hopefully I can get there in time to get one... the local wal mart only has 10. but waitin in line for 8 hours wont be bad for makin a thousand bucks!

i plan on reselling it if i get one.. I have to do some research and find out where i can find a place without a huge line. At lunch time yesterday there were already 15 people at the best buy near my house waiting, last night there was about 20

Remeber the "tickle me elmo'*" that everyone punched and kicked for to get at the stores, and then went online and sole them for 10x the profit? there are a lot of people at home with a tickle me elmo doll that is worht about %5 of what they paid for it...

PS: good luck on the line. The news reporst this morning show moany retailers with lines that far exceed their stock.

i stopped by Wal Mart at about 10:30... no one in line yet... and class got cancled!!! So i am going there right now, so unless there are already 10 people there (most likely not) i will get one.
