GamespotThose who camp out for system launches know ahead of time that they'll have to endure a number of hardships to walk away with a new game console on day one, but being shot probably isn't among them. A drive-by BB gun shooting hit four people at a Best Buy store in Lexington, Kentucky, last night according to reports from the local CBS affiliate, WKYT. Three of the people hit were camped out in line to buy a PlayStation 3 when it goes on sale Friday morning, while the fourth was a WKYT reporter covering the line for a story. Two of those hit reportedly packed up and left the line, saying "a PlayStation 3 simply isn't worth it." The third customer remained in line, telling WKYT "I'd do it again, even if I get shot again." A representative with the Lexington Police Department told GameSpot the shooting happened about 8 p.m., with nobody requiring medical attention, and none of the people hit by the BBs filing a police report. While the police are keeping an eye on the line, he said there have been no more incidents at the Best Buy, and no reports of lines from any other retailers in the area.

What is wrong with people? It's just a console! Some people would do well to go to a Psychiatrist...

I don't think they should be shot at, but they're stupid for camping out all weekend for a freaking console!! Both are "special" folks:rolleyes: When they actually open the store...just watch the news for footage of them beating the hel out of each other for them.

I can already imagine when the store only has 5 or 10 PS3s and theres 100 people, they're all going to mob the person with the PS3 to death and take it from them unless they have security. I think they should send them around behind the building and maybe stick the PS3 box inside a box they have in their warehouse. A bit extensive perhaps, but that many people someone will get angry because they didn't get one. People are just crazy...

IIRC the PS3 is the most graphically advanced console (Hence the hefty pricetag). It'll probably be more than a week, just look back at the 360 launch. People went crazy to try and get them and everything paying $800 for them and paying lots of money just for the 360 box. Same stuff will happen with the PS3, but I bet it'll make even more money.

haha, well let's look at the bright side. At least it was only a BB gun, if not then we'd have real problems! :D

atleast it wasnt a paintball gun like some jackass go out and shoot people with, but i still think they should do something to the guys who shot them oh well, maybe the people will come to thier senses and just have one pre-ordered, then they wont have to stand in a line next time

you know, theyd make a good target to mug, you know a bunch of them probably have the money for it in cash, thats like $600 isnt it
