Hey guys,

Does anyone know if any Costcos in the area will have Wii or PS3 bundles on launch day?

Thought this might be of service to those of you planning on camping for a console.

Alright, if someone would kindly bring a chair for me, I'll bring lunch/dinner. =)

Seriously.

If we can some how plan the earliest group to get there and set up chairs, the rest of us come asap, that'd be great - that way, everyone gets one...

Just got back from reserving another wii at TRU on Cicero (near Ford City mall). They still had 15 reserves left and there was only 3 people waiting in their cars to get one. These are going on ebay for 500-700 for just the system so it could potentially pay for a wii or ps3. Good luck next this week guys, I'll be at Costco for a ps3.

Hey, to the people who are camping out for the Wii or ps3, take some pics or video of your adventures in waiting in line, it will be cool checking them out. I havent done a launch event since the gamecube and dreamcast.

apparently costco's allotment got cut short and they're going to have to use the ones they have to online orders. So no ps3 launch at costco. I was planning on going there too.

Yeah at this point I'm probably gonna just call targets and walmarts, find the ones with the most launch systems, and drive by and check them out. My guess is the lines are too long everywhere already.

I've checked two walmarts in the near west suburbs. They'll open 7am, first come first served. So far no one waiting at either location. I'm wondering if you purchase in one of the less well off areas of the city if you'll have better luck finding a system. Any thoughts? CC and BB are definitely a waste of time unless you don't like sleeping.

yup, thanks..

Do you think it would be better to hit up a 7am store rather than a midnight store, if one can only start waiting around noonish tomorrow?

purduealum91: I really don't know. I asked if they have any plan for line-ups and they said no, so it's up in the air whether it's worth getting there for an overnight camp. I'm considering just going around a half an hour ealier to see if anyone is waiting. For the most part, I think people are concentrating on the Best Buys and Circuit City's, so I'm hoping to get lucky.

I am calling some Targets and they are giving out general numbers. The one by me is 8+ and tickets handed out at 7:15. They said strong police prescense and lights everywhere. :twoguns:I am going to call before they close tomorrow to see if anyone is there and if not, I will get their early Friday morning before school.

BTW I talked to the manager.

If you guys could help out with the list of CCs, that would be great for everyone.

I just got back from the two Schaumburg Targets - Woodfield and West Schaumburg. It looked like over 10 campers at each. Inside the Woodfield Target I heard the employees say there was already 6 PS3s in the back, with possibly a few more arriving tomorrow. So if anyone was trying for a Schaumburg Target wait - looks like all the PS3s are already gone. I will probably check out how Circuit City and Best Buy look when I go out later tonight.

I stopped by the CC in Downers Grove tonight. There were already 4 guys camping there. I didn't bother asking how many units they're expecting in.

Yup, ditto on the 6 per Wal-Mart news. Just checked with the one in Northlake, IL. They have six guaranteed, but will give out vouchers to the next four people in line. There's already 15 people waiting at the Northlake location. My guess is if you don't have a pre-order and don't have time to camp then you're SOL.

Sony is going to lose the console war this generation and lose it HARD if they can't supply enough units into the next year. Combine their crazy ass price with the quality of games being released on the 360 and I'll be switching allegiance very shortly. I don't expect to see a PS3 sitting in my media cabinet for at least two years. Bad Sony, no cookie!
