Don't Go Shopping Alone; It's Dangerous
So you want to beat the crowd to get a Playstation 3? You might be the one getting “beat” unless you’re “packin’ heat”. I’m talking about getting pushed, beatup, mobbed, or even shot!
“Two armed thugs tried to rob a line of people waiting for the new PlayStation 3 game system to go on sale early Friday and shot one man who refused to give up his money,” authorities stated in an article posted on Yahoo News! a few hours ago.
These were just innocent consumers waiting outside a local Wal-mart. So who would do this criminal act for a video game console? Well it isn’t just a gaming console anymore, it has turned into a very very hot commodity.
Yesterday this Yahoo! News article reported that “A buyer in Britain won an eBay auction for one of Sony’s newly launched PlayStation 3 game consoles with a bid of 15,100 dollars.” What about the buy-it-now price for some of these auctions? A cool $25 grand in cold hard US cash.
Where and when will the madness stop?
