    we have a 24 hour wal-mart here and it is in the middle of nowhere in trailer trashville. i'm trying to decide if it would be worth my time to go there around 10pm or if it would be a waste of time. i'm thinking that all the employees will have stashed them and it would be a waste of time. what do you guys think?

    Just cut in line, take a beating, and sell them on ebay. I believe that walmart stores are only getting like 5 of them. At least I heard or read something like that. The beating will be worth the extra grand you make off it :).

    No chance in hell man.

    Best buy in Annapolis had the highest # of PS3 I've heard of both online and in person.

    They had 30 units, people have been camping there since tuesday.

    Good luck.

    P.S bestbuy also had 100 Wii. =)

    Apparently the one nearest to me here in San Diego got 34, or atleast thats what they said on the news a while ago. I went to Walmart a little bit ago and there were like 10 tents outside along the wall.

    I went to wally world at 6 am this morning, was 7th in line.

    The manager came out at 645 and told us that he had gotten 6 in - 4 60gb and 2 20gb systems in - so needless to say I have a valid raincheck - he said he's expecting another shipment in next week. As long as its in before Christmas I'm good to go for some nice profits :)

    They were expecting 12 units in btw...

    most wal-marts only got four. 2 20gb and 2 60gb, and the employees aren't able to buy them if they are working at the time they come in

    Our local walmart got 10 units. At least, that's what they said yesterday. at 5:30pm when I was there. I'm waiting till mid January or February to see if they have any major problems.

    He'd end up taking more than that for even suggesting that to someone who just stood in line for 4 days...

    i got one and sold it. Not for profit, but to my sister for my nephew. I am not a greedy phuck like some. The Best Buy by me in White Marsh had 62, I was 60th in line. But i dont care, my nephew only needs 20 gb. I have my 360 to play on while i watch stupid kids spazzing out over it. When i was walking out of Best Buy, a kid offered me 2000 for it, but he looked like he could have used that money for some smaller glasses and food. I say kid, but i am sure he was like 35 :)
