    People Not Lining Up For PS3

    Sponsored Links
    November 9, 2006 - Yes, you read that right! We've got a story about something not happening!

    In truth, something not happening is something that happens every day, and we don't, in general, report on such non occurrences. For instance, today, Sega didn't announce the Dreamcast 2 (from what we hear, that won't happen until January 15th). Turn to the Dreamcast channel, however, and you won't see a story about Sega having not announced its new platform.

    But given that the PlayStation 3 launches only once in a... well, ever... we're making an exception to the general rule of not reporting about nothing, and reporting about nothing, and with pictures!

    And so, we can report today that no one has started to line up for the PlayStation 3 in Japan. This is based on a tour we took today of Tokyo's biggest game shops. That's right, the Bics, the Yodobashis, the Tsutayas, the Sakurayas, the Don Quixotes. No matter where we looked, no one was lining up for the 11/11 launch.

    Yeah I went to Wal-mart today and saw a PS3 also! I was kind of shocked at it's size, see that it's a little bigger then the PS2.

    But does it look smaller or bigger then the Xbox 360?
