I was by the PS3 line this afternoon so I snapped a couple of pictures. I spoke to the first guy in line and he told me he got there Tuesday night at 8. That’s only a 60 hour wait.
I had to blow this up a little, but you can still see that one person in line hopes to re-sell the PS3 for $2500. It may be a joke, but I don’t doubt someone will make the offer. If a system costs $700 that means the seller will make $1800 for 60 hours of waiting. $30 an hour isn’t a bad wage for simply holding a place in line. Though I understand the benefits are pitiful and there is a risk of losing your job if you sneak away to the bathroom.
