November 11, 2006 - Finally, the chaos has ended, and after weeks of stress IGN Japan has finally gotten our hands on the retail PlayStation 2 machines. Only we didn't get just one system, but two! The wait was long and tiring, but it was well worth it after we were able to get the systems in our hands. Fellow IGN Japan Correspondent Anoop and I joined other members of the online media at Shibuya's Tsutaya around one in the afternoon, where two people had already started queuing. Initially, we were set on camping out in front of Bic Camera in Yodobashi, but seeing the line in Shibuya, the decision was made to stay closer to home.
