"Stores across the globe are about to make a killing of a profit as the Wii and Playstation 3 launch" That may be true only they can cover the demands. I can tell you that the 360 will sell more units, simply because they are ready to supply the demands. The wii and PS3 will most likely better numbers next year. Unless they have lots of consoles that we don't know about (Nintendo may).

I know. It actually tackles the demand issue a bit in the article, mainly focusing on how hard it might be to get one and how to ensure you do. The Wii has a million for the US which isn't bad at all.

If anybody is going to the midnight launch then make sure you have somebody with you, especially for the PS3. With such a shortage with the PS3 a lot of desperate criminals will be lurking around that corner. So for the few who does go and pick up a system at midnight just stay safe and be aware of your surroundings. I usually get my systems at midnight but for the PS3 I'm going to pass on it and for the Wii if I can order it online I will. But if I can't I'm going to go to Gamestop and do the midnight thing.

There are a lot of people who buy these systems just to make a huge profit off of them. They wouldn't think twice about robbing someone to get what they want.

I just saw on the news that some guy was supposedly held at gunpoint for one of the new Elmo dolls!

IMO if the store wants to have a midnight launch or let people stay outside overnight, there should be either hired security on hand or police.

I could see theft as being a reality!
