PS3 Japan Midnight Insanity
The launch of the PS3 is quite the phenomenon, but for Japan, it's apparently a major phenomenon...as expected. With the massive shortage of PS3s, it appears that Japaese would-be PS3 owners were lining up well before the doors opened. And when we say "well before," we mean well before.
If you're interested in checking out just how psyched these gamers are, check here. Sure, they may seem a tad over-zealous, but hey, it's Japan. And to be perfectly blunt, you can probably expect to see something similar come Thursday night here in the U.S.
So if you don't already have one of those coveted preorder receipts, we suggest you take these photos as a hint. Buy some camping gear now, or don't expect to land a PS3 this Friday.
