"My wife thinks I'm nuts and my kids are sleeping."

A man spends hours outside a store in Manhattan, waiting for his chance to purchase an Xbox 360. Apparently, he wasn't the only one.

The much-publicized transition to the next generation of video game consoles began Tuesday morning as stores across the country started selling Microsoft's Xbox 360, the powerful new machine that is already the must-have of the season for hard-core game players. They gathered in the rain in Manhattan, where a Best Buy opened its doors at midnight. They stood in line all night at chain stores like Target. (NY Times)

My nephew Adam waited in line at a Target in St. Joseph, Missouri, and writes about his experience here.
