    Burbank (CA) - People are willing to go through hell to get the upcoming Sony PlayStation 3 console and there are already lines forming for November 17th launch. We went to the Best Buy store in Burbank where people started lining up on Monday November 6th, 11 days. Watch our video as one guy explains how he quit his job to stand in line, while another won't be buying his girlfriend an engagement ring anytime soon.

    Anyone else out there that has 11 days to sit on the sidewalk waiting for a game to come out? Even if I didn't have a job, or girlfriend, or anything else I can't imagine doing that for 11 days. Maybe 2 or 3 as a lark, but not 9 - 11.

    i really dont know, seeing as pre orders are going for 2000 right now, im hopeing for 2500-3000 on release night.

    i think ill sit back a couple of hours and see how the market starts playing out. if its not bringing in what i hoped, ill probably sit on it till xmas.

    in a worst case scenario, ill end up with a premium PS3 for my self.

    There is an unspoken heirarchy for losers and these guys lining up for PS3's are right at the bottom.

    Probably more sad because that means they didn't even have to wait in line for very long.
