We were gonna go and interview the kids waiting outside for the new Sony Playstation 3, but a little thing called Life got in the way. Thankfully our pals at Current.tv not only took a crew out there but a guitar as well. Our only question, why did they bleep out the word "weed"?
Anyways, thats what was going on in Hollywood which seemed sunshiney and chill, here's a rundown of some of the mahem that went down in the rest of the country
- Magazine awards kid a $7,500 PC as long as he doesn't own a PS3 for one year - PC Gamer
- Military family trying to auction off PS3 for $100k to "secure son's future" - ebay
- One man shot while standing in line in Connecticut; cops shut down rowdy line in Palmdale; and cops pepper spray crowd in Tyson's Corner - Washington Post
