After hours in line, gamers hope new systems will change their lives


It may be an exercise in futility, but gamers across the country are hoping that being one of the first to get the new Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii will add a sense of meaning to their lives. One Knoxville shopper that wasn’t afraid to speak with reporters stood in line nearly 48 hours at Wal-Mart for the new Wii. “I realize this is time I’ll never get back, but what was I going to do with that time anyway? The new Playboy doesn’t come out for another week, and my online girlfriend is saving up for a new webcam. But I bet girls will really want to chat with me when they hear I’m one of the first to get a Wii!”
