    You know, I mostly order my stuff on the internet so even if I lived in Japan, I would just pre-order this kind of stuff the same way. These long hours of queuing could mean you meet some new friends, though!

    Oh well, at least the chaos isn't as bad as when two big name football teams clash over here in the UK [​IMG]

    Pre-ordering it online sounds so 'safe' if that's what queing is like in japan. [​IMG]

    @ fischju: Must be you.

    That was some nice disassembling of the PS3. Wonder if they ever got it put back together...

    I didn`t hear about even one fight on the news or through 2ch... Just too many people crowding into too small a place and injuries from that. No actual fights.
    Funny thing is, there have been estimates by various news stations that over half of the PS3s were bought by resellers to sell via auction or overseas. Even the first buyer is supposedly a reseller from China.
    Anyone who really wanted it reserved it at small shops months and months ago - our local store was taking reservations from 4 months ago, and only the first so many people got to get one.

    I am really disappointed with the PS3. Weird as it sounds, the controller is too light... It really showed me the importance of having vibration. It feels like I`m holding an empty plastic shell in my hands... And although it`s great that the graphics are pretty and high definition and all, they look like prettily printed paper models. I can`t really explain it, but everything seems hollow. With the high definition, you can see the edges of the pieces of ingame models. And that`s not even mentioning the amount of slowdown in the games and the lack of support for just about any PS2 game we have. [​IMG]

    I have yet to actually try the Wii, but the PS3 is not what we hoped for.

    I saw the ebay sale for a PS3 on ebay. It's mad. It's going for over £1000. I think I'll buy one in Hong Kong.... IF I can actually get one and sell it.
