PS3 Sux!I have my plan of attack for tomorrow. If you’re completely clueless about the big event that is going down tomorrow, let me clue you in. Tomorrow is the official US release of the 5th generation video game console, the Nintendo Wii. Yeah so I’m not completely sold on the name, but I love Nintendo and I’m pretty sure I’m going to love the Wii. I’ve already written about the awesomeness that is the Wii so you’ll have to check out some previous posts to find out what all the hype is about. In any event I’m not going to give you my game plan quite yet just in case some people around here try to beat me to the stores. I’ll leave it at this. I definitely have a back up for the back up and another backup after that. I checked out the stores today, found the opening times for tomorrow and made sure no one was waiting in line yet for tomorrow’s openings (I did my homework). They weren’t. This is Altoona, PA remember? Frankly I don’t anticipate anyone really camping out tonight. Maybe in the bigger cities like New York or LA, where Nintendo is sponsoring giant parties and music festivals to keep their fans entertained, but not here. But then again I could be wrong. Let’s hope I’m not. If you don’t hear from me in a while it’s because I’m sitting in front of my TV playing my new Nintendo Wii for the remainder of my free time for the rest of my life, or until the 6th generation consoles get released.

On a final note, you'll never hear me say this again, but Go Buckeyes! Boo Michigan!!

I think you're a girl...we don't even scope out the stores. See you after the 6th generation is released...

I enjoy your blog. You have an interesting life. When do you have time to work?

Jimmy,

Good luck. Here in Colorado, they started camping out on Thursday in front of Target. This strikes me as weird as each store only gets so many. I thought I read in the paper about 6-10 per store.

My son has gamecube and that's fine by us.

Did you get one? I went looking this afternoon, but the Wal-Mart, Circuit City, and Target that I checked were all sold out.

People were camping out at Walmart the other day for PS3. And, I just saw on the news there were people camping out at Circuit City in Altoona last night, but I didn't see you! You underestimate the crazy video gamers in Blair County. I hope you got one anyway!
