Nerdy Consumerism

A faithful reader tells me there were at least 10 people camping out at the Decatur Walmart last night to get the new PS3 video gaming console.

Why, so they can be the first to return it because of the defects?

No, so they can resell it on ebay for a HUGE profit!!

There were about 10 camped out since Wednesday in front of the Best Buy in Lewisville.

My husband saw them camped out at the Decatur Wal-Mart at 6:00am Thursday morning, sleeping bags and all. They had been there since the night before.

Taze'em all run in on trespass charges and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.

They must have been educated in public schools. Walmart is open 24 hours.

Not everybody is a rich lawyer. Get in the real world - lots of folks are trying to save a few bucks.

Nerdy consumerism? Not to some.

When someone is WILLING to camp outside of Wal-Mart overnight in the HOPE of being able to spend $600.00 dollars for an electronic TOY they are NOT camping because they are interested in "trying to save a few bucks." Typically they are either gamer NERDS or hoping to MAKE a few "bucks" when they resell the TOY for more than $600.00 on e-bay.

Mzchief - you may be right about this one, but I do know a family who needs a computer and plan to camp out at at Compuwise who is offering a hot deal on a complete package -

I admire somebody who will do that. Likely you wouldn't due to sleeping out in the cold. And I wouldn't either.

It's just too easy to judge, especially on this board.

There is a VAST difference between camping outside of a store for something a family "needs" and camping outside in the HOPE of buying a $600.00 TOY.

I will bet dollars to dimes Sony will make more PS3s AND will only too gladly sell future PS3s for $600.00 to people who do NOT have to camp outside the store.

WOW!
I must agree with the anonyNOTHING commentator who calls you a "loser/dumbass". While I am having a GREAT time at 4:42 AM you have NOTHING better to do than prove yourself to be a petty, spiteful and hateful LOSER.

*LOL@U*

Curtis Creswell said they were camping out--but they were only given six Playstation 3s, with only four more to come in the near future. I wonder if those people knew that there were only six Playstation 3s to sell?
