PlayStation 3 Makes U.S. Debut

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:55 am

Days of waiting paid off for Sergio Rodriguez, one of the relatively few able to buy Sony’s PlayStation 3 when the coveted console went on sale early Friday.

He was among the die-hard gamers and entrepreneurs across the country who braved foul weather and heckling by passers-by all week for the chance to shell out $500 or more for the sleek game machine. With shortages resulting from production problems, many had camped out for days without knowing if they’d be going home empty-handed.

At a midnight launch event at a Circuit City in New York, Rodriguez was the first to walk away with the PS3 as people still standing in line outside the store cheered. He had been waiting outside since Sunday.
