Ive been waiting for a long time for it, Ive been reading up on it! I just need to get it!
BY DAYBREAK, NEW LINES WERE FORMING I made it 33! BUT WITH SO FEW GAMES TO SELL MOST PEOPLE GOT TURNED AWAY. We cant guarantee well get anymore before the holidays. Gretchen Carlson Reporting SO WHY THE PROBLEM? SONY SAYS THERE WAS A SHORTAGE OF SOME OF THE KEY PARTS TO THE GAME. FOR CONSUMERS THAT MEANS STORES WILL ONLY HAVE 500,000 GAMES TO SELL RIGHT NOW, INSTEAD OF THE ORIGINAL 1 MILLION. Ah Geez! BUT WITH REAL LIFE ATHLETES PARTICIPATING IN MAKING THE GAME, AND SUCH REAL LIFE GRAPHICS THE GAME WILL NO DOUBT STAY HOT -- ESPECIALLY WITH THIS FUTURE PLUG IN SPACE. EXPERTS SAY THAT SPACE MEANS EVENTUAL INTERNET ACCESS AND MUCH MORE. Frank OConnor/Video Game Expert Theyre going to be able to pipe movies into your home, pipe TV shows, video games and any other content, online shopping anything they want to sell you theyll be able to put into your home through your Playstation 2.
