PlayStation 3 hopeful buyer injured trying to buy console in Wisconsin

A person was injured Thursday morning outside a Wal-Mart department store racing for a chance to buy one of 10 coveted video game systems the store will put on sale Friday.
An assistant manager announced to a crowd of about 50 people that the store was only going to receive about 10 of the Sony PlayStation 3 game consoles and the store official placed 10 chairs outside of the store, police said.

At the signal, the customers were told to run to try to occupy one of the chairs to be able to buy the system at 12:01 a.m. on Friday.

A 19-year-old man ran into a pole and struck his head, injuring himself. He was taken to the hospital for treatment, police said.

And the dumbass will probably be rewarded for his stupidity with a million dollar lawsuit,.. (and a PS3).

I went to the local Walmart and was told that they were not receiving the allocated 10 consoles. They had two and 8 rainchecks which the employee said wouldnt be here till after christmas.

I can't wait to see the riots tonight, when they tell hundreds you can't have it, and they don't know when you will:D
