Video preview of PlayStation 3 launch in North America

AAIIIEEEE! It's PS3-zilla! Seriously, this crowd looks about five seconds away from erupting into a full scale riot. Girls screaming, men grimacing and lots of shoving. It's consumerism gone rampant, fueled by months and months of waiting and possibly nuclear radiation.

It will be a mad scene next week when the PS3 hits U.S. shores, are you ready for it? We recommend stocking up on water, food, a blanket and possibly a stun gun to keep the really rabid shoppers away. Do some stamina training this week, either on a treadmill, a stairmaster, or playing some serious Dance Dance Revolution. At least these fancy PS3 boxes have a built-in handle, so your getaway from the store can be that much faster.

Check out the video after the jump. It'll make your palms start to itch, ready to lug one of these back home. Either that, or all the screaming will irritate the crap out of you.
