My work buddy managed to pull it off and got his $500 PS3 (and $230 of accessories) after 36 hours of lingering outside Walmart. Actually, it’s only his PS3 for another 16 hours since it was listed on ebay with a starting price of 99 cents. We bet “lunch for a week” that he wouldn’t sell the bundle for more than $1230.
Interesting trivia: Remember, person #2 sold his spot in line for $700 and #1 sold his spot for $500… As the night wore on, #3 also sold his spot for $500. Turns out those guys got the last laugh — a couple had already prepaid them to hold their places!
Interesting trivia 2: Sounds like Walmart had their act together. At 10PM they issued Playstation wristbands corresponding to model (20GB or 60GB) to those waiting in line. The store closed at midnight, and once all the customers left they let the wristbanded folks in. They got in line in original order at a register which had the units and a cart of games/accessories they could add to their order.
