Articles are popping up all over the place about people doing stupid things with respect to the PS3 and Wii launches this weekend.

What other stories - news and otherwise - have you seen?


Personally, I'm waiting a few months to get a Wii - prices will go down, and they'll get all the bugs out of the first versions.

Oh, and you should get some firsthand accounts about the Wii from seorin and I...we're planning on picking one up on Sunday, assuming the acquiring doesn't require anything ridiculous (we didn't preorder, but I don't see that as being much of a problem in this case).
