Outwit, outlast, and outcamp your way to a Wii
Planning to camp out this weekend in search of a Wii? We understand. Promises of plenty of consoles for everyone be damned -- when it's launch day, it's time to get your camp on. But there's a problem, see. There will probably be other people camping, too, and when it comes to a console launch, anything goes. We don't advocate violence ... but if someone tries to get between us and a Wii, well, we might have to kill them in front of their momma (apologies for quote bastardization). But no worries, fanfolk -- the crew at Gaming Out Loud did a little research* for you and they have some tips for outcamping all the other console-crazed individuals.

We favor tip #3 (check out the original article for the rest):

Nothing gives you more insta-cred than whipping out a DS lite while waiting for the sun to rise. Not only does it validate your nerdocity, but it can be a great way to spark conversations with others.

"Hey, is that DS lite?"
"Yes."

Isn't that amazing? That right there has bonded you two for life.

Though now it's going to seem like copying if we take a DS. Thanks, Alec. Thanks a lot.

*They read a wiki. Not the Wiki, just a wiki.
