Microsoft and Epic Games are holding a big blowout for the September 20th release of Gears of War 3 at the Best Buy theater in Times Square and one dedicated fan has already staked out his place in line.
lol dedicated fan. i never understand why people think its such a big deal to be the first to buy a game/system.
True. They get in line days ahead of everyone...just to be first. Very short celebration moment, very long time taken to achieve it. The funny thing is how he won't win anything or get a medal/prize for it while someone else will probably walk into best buy like 8 hours later, grab a copy and go home.
That wii fanboy became famous...for a minute anyway...."sleeps for babies". ...classic
i have better things to do in nyc then wait for a game to release lol. it will be a normal day for me in nyc when this releases. ill just pick it up later in the week.
Funny thing is, I will go to my gamestop at like 11:45PM and pick it up at midnight, drive the short commute back to my house and play it before he gets back home.
No different than when trying to get hard to find tickets to a concert ,show or your fave band.
Really? So I can go into the place the band played at a day AFTER their scheduled concert and still see the band?
Wouldn't it be funny of this game was like the other gears short sp and busted mp all that waiting for another hyped up fps. Oh no's i said fps instead of 3rd person shooter i always get that mixed up sense all you do in that game is run around enter fp view mode then spray your guns oh and that 12ft long chainsaw how fun...
That would be even MORE funny if Gears was a fps. I don't own a 360 and even I know that. :? EDIT: I left off the apostrophe in "don't". Whoops..
@just_looken HAHAHAHAHAHAHA OMG, that would be funny funniest thing i ever heard /sarcasm
enter first person view mode? wtf are you talking about?? dude.. stop, dont hurt yourself your trying too hard.
Gears of war is a fantastic franchise,now go away and troll something else !
it's like a puzzle that i don't understand it!! WTH r u talking about????
TROLLLLLLL.Just becouse gears has morepeople that loveit and bigger cumminity dthan uncharted or other fps on ps3 dosent mean yu have to be a annoying aas all day and postingshitup on xboxstuff.
You call him a troll then proceed to troll yourself. lol
how about showers and using the bathroom? if you get out of line then your not really waiting so it would be pointless
He's probably afraid that if he goes quickly for like 2 minutes, comes back, someone will have stolen his spot, just a "mere" 6 days before the game is released! Wouldn't want to risk it now would he?
I can't imagine what it would take to make me stand on line for 6 days. Whatever it is it had better be dipped in gold and diamond studded.
Lol its free advertising. Stores do stuff like this in Ireland all the time. When they have madness sales on they always pay some people to camp in a line days before. What it does is grabs peoples attention on the streets and finally ends up in the news which is their major plan.(Think EAs fake protesting campaign) Free advertisment. Nothing screams buy me more that hearing people are willing to stay out in the cold for days just to buy something. How do I know this? Because my brother works for an advertising company and hes had to do that a few times. The moneys great but the job sucks
6 days.. have fun with your video game. :)
Queue for 6 days - beat SP in 8 hours. Well worth the wait!
Wots wrong with getting it on launch day like everyone else, there will be plenty of copies to go round. I think its sad and humiliation to camp outside a shop 6 days or so prior just to get a game. What an idiot!!!
It would be funny if he took the week of work to camp out but forgot to book another week or so and gets home with game and is like shit at work tommorow.
I prefer ordering off shopto in uk becuase i usually get games 2-3 days early.
Agreed. Shopto are really good. Recently Amazon have been failing to get games to me on Day 1, so even though Shopto are sometimes a few pennies more expensive it's worth it for the reliable (sometimes early) delivery.
Fans are so dedicated..... but did somebody forget the release date is Tuesday, not Friday? ;P
GofW fan an idiot should be the title, waiting multiple days early when he could just as easily be there in a few days and still be first. Seriously waiting 6 days for anything is dumb, even more so when it's not even needed.
I'm worried for fans of Skyrim. If this is a GoW fan, how dedicated will a skyrim fan be?
now thats a fan and am sure he will be getting some extras watch
sitting in line for 6 days when you can get this easily on release day is stupid. Only thing that I can understand is being on camera as the first purchaser Im sure that guy will be on the xbl dashboard
