I got a Sony PlayStation III!!!!!

Hey everybody!!!!!

I got a PlayStation III game system this morning! I realize that this isn't the proper site to make such a posting but I am so excited I wanted to tell y'all!

Getting it didn't go without paying a price. I arrived at the store (Target) on Wednesday at 4:00pm and was 9th in line. The store manager came out and told us that they were only expecting 8 systems so some people left but I decided to stay! On Thursday evening the manager returned and said that they had 6 - 60GB systems in the store and that they hoped to get 2 - 20GB systems. At that moment the two guys in front of me packed up and left. I was now 7th in line! Thursday, just before the store closed the manager returned and said that they had received the 2 remaining 20GB systems.

Diligence pays off! I stayed and was fortunate enough to get a system even if it is only the 20GB.

Incidentally, I really wanted the 60GB system because it had WiFi and the memory stick card slots built into the unit... not to mention it was 3 times larger than the one I currentlt have!

Thanks for letting me share me experince! I don't play the games but I'm sure my son's will enjoy the system!

I don't get it.... you guys have much more serious problem in this country to take care of and i think is just wrong "to be nice" to stand there for days and also be excited to tell others in wrong place...

next time that you are going to act excited and consider wasting money for just a game box "in just few weeks will be cheaper" look around and make a talk with someone that is hungry or need to go to the doctor for less than that sony price.

Is that the American Value that is forced by bombs to the rest of the world? blloooonnnnyyyyyy.

you guys in US are out of touch with reality and spoil uselessly yourself and your kids and the next generation is even worse than this one...

thats why you get such fascism in here and entire world has to pay the price of your ignorance and selfishness...

btw, xmas is not a jesus party, jesus was not born on dec. etc etc...
is all about how to keep people dumb and control and rub their money.....

happy PSP3 day .... i need an asperine...
c
ps,
Don't take it personal but im just pissed off of the level of fakness in here.

Well, I'm not sure about where you're from, but at least I'll show some respect and assume that others where you live, are not like you.

Sorry if you're having a bad moment.

Yeah there are some dumb people out there, but fortunately the majority aren't even remotely close to how our media represents Americans to the rest of the world. Things are always blown out of proportion by our press and goverment and rarely do they reflect on who we are, but more so on what corporations and special interests want us to be.

As Ezekial already pointed out, the US is not alone in its quest for what's new. Our society is based on captalism and I see the fascism here and there, but at least the blind consumer whorism isn't as previlent as it used to be, and most Americans are finally coming around and seeing beyond their religous belief.

Before you call us ignorant and selfish, you should take a long look at yourself. Becuse you're being a comlpete hypocrite, by assuming all Americans are the same.

Whoa man, I don't really know what made you flip out... Just because it's America you have a problem when everyone else in the entire world does that too? I know plenty of people waited outside for both the Wii AND PS3 in Japan AND America and I am sure that the European nations are no different either.
Please don't try going to bash America calling us ignorant and bombers, and all that other stuff about a "Jesus party" when most American retailers know that it's the Holidays- and NOT exclusively Christmas. You are celebrating something in almost all religions around the same time, so why not have a happy holiday? Is it possibly an excuse to spend money? Some people see it as so, but there's something more that I take away from every Christmas eve with family than some material goods, and it's the amazing time I have with my family, and that's more what the holidays are about for most people.
Sorry, I've been sitting on my tongue for a while, but I don't like seeing this slander, so I felt I would address it.

On topic, I have a 20GB in my possession now, and I am thinking of opening it [Even though, yes, I am aware that I am hypocritical in my stance now due to my stance earlier in the year...] but I don't want a useless broken unit. We shall see.

You guys got any say?

Just wanted to chime in and mention that I was able to get a PS3 (60GB) off an ad at craigslist. This guy was selling it for $700 (just $70 above what he got it for) since his son prefers the Xbox 360. Ha!

Actually, I got it for the Blu-ray player first, and games second. I like that it would play SACDs too.
