People Not Lining Up For PS3 (Japan)

IGN can report today that no one has started to line up for the PlayStation 3 in Japan. This is based on a tour they took today of Tokyo's biggest game shops. That's right, the Bics, the Yodobashis, the Tsutayas, the Sakurayas, the Don Quixotes. No matter where they looked, no one was lining up for the 11/11 launch.

The story is too old to be commented.

And that proves the citizens of Japan are not as needy/idiotic as the citizens of America!

Or it's going to tank (highly doubtful).

You didn't even read it did you?They are turning ppl away from lining up.One store has a crazy lotto system(you get a ticket and they hold a drawing) to stop the long lines.The Wii lines are for Pre-orders not for the launch line ups! ppl :(

No, I didn't Shy. The first sentence of my comment was entirely sarcastic and the second was just poking fun.

I wouldn't take it personally =)

Well you forgot to add the Sarcasm part.We can't read minds you know!:(

I hate text for that very reason. It is insanely difficult to perceive meaning when there is no tone or hint of context =(

News finally got to Japan that NBA Live 07 was cancelled for the PS3. They love that NBA over there!

Yes, read the article. One store is doing a lottery system, the others are telling people to leave that started to line up yesterday and today. They want them to start the lines tomorrow, apparently. It's going to be crazy over there.
