I didn't take the time to camp out to get a new Playstation 3. In fact, I don't think I'll be getting a PS3 anytime soon. But some people did. They camped out in hopes of getting their hands on a beautiful PS3. Was it fun? Was it worth it?
By the looks of this CNN article, I would say it was NOT worth it. One man was shot while waiting in line, others were held up for their money, because this device is not cheap, with PS3 prices ranging between $499 and $599, $200 more than the PS2 at launch, and $400-$500 higher than what you'd pay to get the first Sony console.
Did you camp out to get a PS3? Did you actually get a PS3? Was it worth it? How's the game play on the PS3? I'd love to hear what you have to say or interview you if you've actually gotten your hands on a PS3 console. Just drop a note in the comments, and I'll contact you soon.
