Buy A PS3 Without The Wait

The catch? It will cost you seven large. Seriously? Could anyone actually do that and still speak of it in public without getting like ... stoned from nearby villagers for fear of whatever possessed them might cause undo evil upon the world?

Quick Observation

I think it's funny as hell to read all these articles about people waiting in line for days to pick up a PlayStation 3 - facing weather, line-jumpers and even people armed with BB guns (damn - real life griefers while waiting for your new console ... that is harsh) and then scroll down to the comments and see gems like "wtf, how stupid - why wait for a PS3" or "PS3 is too hard to code for - the games will all suck you suckers."

And so on.

Need anyone more evidence that the majority of people commenting on the Internet do not represent the majority of gamers? Not that 700 people huddled outside a San Fran Sony store represent any kind of majority vote either ... but clearly there's a distinct division between much of the blogosphere and the reality on the ground.
