The other night at Safeway I overheard the cashier and bagger (actually they were talking to each other and ignoring me while I was waiting). Their animated conversation centered on the merits of the PS3 over the XBox360. I would have thought that young aimless males in their 20s would have other matters to ponder. This was my first inking that the PS3 was generating tremendous excitement among people otherwise old enough to have lives.
Honest this isn't an Onion article. Two arrested after crowd stampeded store to buy PlayStation 3: "Two people were arrested after a crowd waiting to buy Sony's PlayStation 3 rushed an electronics store, trampling people in the parking lot of a Fresno shopping center, police said."
