exactly, they had all of those PS2s somewhere in a warehouse and used the 500,000 excuse to hype the system up. Know what I really hate? I hate the people who buy like 10 PS2s and sell them for rediculous prices on auction sites. Those ****ers should think about the little Eleven year olds who won\'t be getting one under the tree because of these assholes. I remember when i was 11 and I had my SNES and they were easily obtainable from K-Mart. Know there is so much bull**** with these systems. But, i do have to admit, sitting outside freezing my ass off at 4:30 in the morning was fun, especially meeting all the otehr people. All of these thoughts are just my thoughs, so dont waste your time flaming me.
