18 stores nationwide to accommodate anxious gamers. The majority of retailers have no problem with people camping outside of their doors before the launch of a new console, and occasionally they'll even open at midnight to make the process over that much quicker. A Best Buy employee leaked his company's plans to Kotaku today, detailing the 18 locations nationwide that will open doors at midnight for PlayStation 3 -- but none for Wii.
Considering the limited number of PS3s that will be available, though, can you blame Best Buy for simply wanting to end the pain as soon as possible? Then again, most people will be camping out before the end of business hours. Bunch of crazy people.
