I camped out 2 hours for a 3DS, and let me tell you I was still waiting like 5-10 minutes in line.
I got there about 30 minutes early for the Wii since it was in a closed mall, and waited 5-10 minutes. Then again I was like 3rd in line for my Wii.
I am still praying Gamestop.com doesn't
me over. I mean since Rayman Legends got delayed I am not in a rush to get one but it would be nice to have the security of owning one.
Thats good to know. So ill be at mine at 7am with a thermos of some coffee watch the madness. At my location they told me they cut off preorders at 19, 18 of those where the deluxe versions. So I dont mind the couple hour waiting to make sure i dont become a Gamestop horror story. Ive never done a console launch so this will be most interesting. Has anyone whos attended one sit back and talk with the other new owners or do you just head straight home and set that puppy up?
