Waiting for the PS3? Wear kevlar, or you'll get shot

Technically, you'd still be shot regardless whether or not you've got a kevlar vest on, but I digress. This isn't really news, just something very, very disturbing. Recently, there was a drive-by shooting at a Best Buy, injuring four people waiting in line for a Playstation 3. Collect yourselves, I know you want to laugh, but bear with us.

The bullets were merely BB's, but those things still hurt. One of the injuries fell upon Elizabeth Dorsett, a news reporter who was interviewing someone at the time. Now, local police are standing in line too. Not to get a PS3, but to protect the poor individuals waiting in line. If the console war turns into some kind of gang war, I want out. I'll just keep playing every system I currently own, cursing those dastardly kids who shoot each other for wanting different things. Silly news, silly, silly news.

4. Matt -- I'm aware wearing kevlar won't stop you from getting shot. Thus the first sentence of the post: "Technically, you'd still be shot regardless whether or not you've got a kevlar vest on, but I digress." Nice try!

5. This is stupid! I cannot believe that people would do any of this, for a video game! Camping out at stores, shooting, paying $600+ ? STUPID!! It's just a video game! Manufacturers are going to keep coming up with new crap, & hyping them up, & every time, the idiot public will keep doing this stupid stuff. It happens every time & the manufacturers know that the brainwashed public will go nuts over anything new! idiots.

6. We were going to egg the people standing outside futureshop and then take their place, but we bought 360's instead. Viva 360.

8. If people just look at places other than ebay, ther are lots of stores online that do have the Playstation 3 for under $1,000. And these are places where you can buy them without any bidding. I am seeing them from the $700 range, up to $1,600, brand new from the store(not from someone that has bought them & resells them). And these places also have the PS3 games. I am seeing places with them allover! Why pay the STUPID prices on Ebay for them when all you need to do is look at other places!
