Anyone plan on camping out for a PS3?

    The Playstation 3 come out Friday. Anyone planning on camping out for one? I'm thinking of getting one and then flipping it, so I can make some Christmas money.
    The local Wal Mart already has people waiting in line and I think Best Buy might be busy, so I plan to head to Target and camp out there.

    Anyone ever camped outside of a store? Any suggestions?

    Camping outside a store for three nights to get a video game system?

    If you don't line up early for a PS3, then the terrorists have won. ;D

    Is it possible you could make more money doing something other than waiting in line for three days? You'd probably net about 2 bucks an hour for your trouble, if you are lucky.

    I stopped by my local Best Buy last night before my rec league basketball game to pick up the new John Legend CD. As I walked in I noticed a few losers dudes camping out. I was confused. Then I saw the PS3 comes out in THREE days. I thought, "No way could they be waiting for this."
    Turns out they are... Holy shit!

    A few things come to mind:
    1. This damn thing is $600, how can you afford it if you're sitting outside for three days and not working?
    2. I understand the joys of video games. Where else can the Browns be a Super Bowl contender? But is this really necessary? They will make more, won't they?
    3. Did I leave the oven on?
    4. Have these guys ever seen a naked woman?

    A lot of people are flipping PS3s for a quick buck. The $600 packages are going for more than $2,000 on eBay. If you've got the free time, camping out for three days for a $1,400 profit doesn't sound too bad.

    There will never be a PS2, PS3, XBox, Nintendo or any other game system in my house. One of the tiny little lines in the sand I've drawn.
