Anyone have any suggestions? Some place bus accessable I hope. I'm thinking either the Washington Square Target or CC, since I live less than I mile from there. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks.

I'm thinking I might try the WS Target at 7 and if there's more than 40 or so people I'll check out the line at the CC across the street and wait an extra 2 hours. Wish me luck.

There's a Target in the Tanasbourne area too, right up the street.

On an somewhat related note, it kinda sucks that the CD/Game Exchange nearby closed. I used to get called out to the Tanasbourne area for work quite a bit and I'd always check it out, along with GameCrazy, Turn Around Sound, GameStop, and sometimes Wherehouse (back when the used game selection at that store was actually decent). On the plus side, the store relocated to the Oak Grove/Milwaukie area, so when I have work in the Milwaukie area I check that out along with the Goodwill across the street.

Check out the new N64 Rumble Pak. See how it feels to feel what you see.

Try Fred Meyers man. Hardly anyone ever goes there for launches it seems like. I got my PSP at launch at the one on Walker. They also open at 7 am, an hour to 3 hours before anyone else.

Except for the fact that Fred Meyers is opening at midnight in most places.

Huh, I hadn't seen that yet. I called Tigard this evening; they're doing a lottery tomorrow morning. Tickets around 6:30, drawing before the store opens.

Oh crazy. IDK. I just know that when push came to shove, I got my PS2 and PSP both at Fred Meyers.

I just called the one on W 11th here in Eugene and they started their line at 7 AM today and sold all of their orders (places in line) already. They had a grand total of 54! The Target down the road had only 24! Lame! No Wii on launch for me.

fwiw, I just got back from the Tualatin Fred Meyer where they had 75 units for about 125 people. I was just moments too late.

The one out off Cornelius Pass is worse according to a friend of mine.

I'm going to be content to hit the lottery tomorrow morning and see what happens.

I forgot there's a Game Stop across Sleep Country, Haggen's Pizza Smizza and Jamba Juice on the Tanasbourne Mall. There's like 2 Fred Meyers within a 10 mile distance(for me since I live in Bethany). One is in Walker and the other is in Cornelius Pass. Fry's is about 30 minutes from here.

Gateway Target's getting 35. There were people camping at Best Buy since Friday night for the Wii. Risky seems how the people on line at Circuit City down the street all got robbed at gunpoint on Thursday night/ early Friday morning waiting for the PS3 and they still haven't caught the 2 guys that did it.
