Check this video out. I'm impressed, but I'm glad I don't live on his street.
Some friends from work and I stood outside of the Bellevue Best Buy yesterday waiting on the midnight launch of the Xbox360. We had originally planned to get there at 4pm, but as the days went on, it seemed the demand (and the count of those willing to wait in line for hours) grew and grew. We ended up there at 10am. In Seattle. In November. It was cold.
We were numbers 127-130 in line, and shortly after 12:30am, we walked through the doors of Best Buy and received our consoles. YAY! Time to play some games… (Call of Duty 2, PGR3, Madden '06)
I'll blog more about my, uhh, experiences there later.
