Comment on site articles.

Nintendo fans are already camping outside HMV

Wii U isn't released until Friday but hardcore Nintendo fans have already started queuing to buy the console outside HMV in London's Oxford Street. Izzy Rahman has been camping with friends Sing Duong, Michael Djuma and Teddy Djuma outside HMV since Saturday night in order to become the first person in the UK to buy a Wii U.

It'll all be fun and games in there until the batteries on those 3DSs run out, and left with no way to charge them, god knows what they'll resort to.
PM me for NNID and 3DS FC, go on.

It's nice that there doing it in a group of 4.
At least 1 or 2 can go and venture for food whilst the others wait with there stuff.
And i am sure that HMV will let them use there power points from time to time to charge there 3DSs.

I also wonder how many people gave them there spair change?

If they're prepared to sit outside in a tent for a week, then they deserve to be first. :) As for going there myself, I would if other parts of the UK got to join in, but as usual it's just for the Londoners.

That picture reminds me of the tent from Harry potter and the Goblet of Fire....
My Youtube career kinda ended, so...I really have nothing to put here anymore...

I'm gonna be so annoyed if there is a lack of stock in January - it's the only time I'll be able to get one. I'm not waiting until February, like with Wii or I'll be angry.

And they'll all regret it once the next Microsoft/ Sony console comes out, like I do with my 3DS when I see a PS vita advert

You are insane, I love my Vita. Rayman Origins is better than the 3DS, Lumines, Persona, Gravity Rush, Sound Shapes etc.
The 3DS is cool too but other than Nintendo games there are not a lot of brilliant titles

Fair enough but I don't have a TV at uni so my ps3, Wii and soon Wii U are at home and I have to rely on portable gaming for my fix in the week
