Midnight Best Buy Launch Locations for PS3 54

If you're on pins and needles looking forward to November 17th, you'll be very interested to know that Kotaku has a list of Best Buy stories opening at Midnight on PS3 launch day. The list of 18 stores allowed to open at the very start of the day comes from what is apparently an internal memo. The other stores are slated to open at 8am, assuming there are no restrictions on the time they can open (if they're in a mall, for example). As a refresher for launch day fans, make sure and check out the list of launch window titles, and the accessories price list.

    Can anybody think of another type of product that people campout to buy? To me this seems like a game console sort of phenomenon, which I find rather odd.

    So wait... the text in that article explaining which stores are opening is supposed to be straight from the corporate mouth of Best Buy? There is no way that they would be saying "that'll" "won't" and inconsistently using phrases such as "unless prohibited by law or landlord situations" vs "unless prohibited by landlord situations". That is unless they have their janitor do their memos.

    I hope that Best Buy has they courtesy to tell people their inventory... so if they have 10 PS3s in stock, they will tell the 11th person to go home. They probably won't, as they will take the opportunity to milk as much as they can from the press of it. How ironic. The lack of PS3s out there will most likely drive people to pick up a Wii or a 360.

User hostile.
