It is now Friday 10th of November 1am in the morning in Japan. The Sony PS3 will be in stores in bit more than 24 hours. There is apparently nobody camping out in front an electronics store - rather unusual.
IGN published today an investigative report on the Sony PS3 situation in Japan. They did not find any lines for the Sony PS3 yet. Reasons for this might be that the supply per store is just ridiculously low. We talk 5 on average. (Kotaku has some details on that). Some stores will do a lottery. They hand out tickets starting Saturday morning.
The fun part in the IGN report is that they found two lines. One was for the Nintendo DS Lite and one was to pre-order the Nintendo Wii.
It is 1 am on Saturday the 11th in Japan and lines have formed now. see video on Gizmodo.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
