I have MGS4!!!

I just returned home from Best Buy! I arrived at about 7 this morning, no one was there, I left to go home and use the bathroom... 8, still no one, and i leave yet again. 8:30 a couple of cars arrive, but no one decides to leave their cars. 9, two Best Buy employs exit the building, looking for a crowd, and the folks and myself leave our cars. We get in line, I'm actually 3rd, and wait about 20 minutes.. there only about 15 people in line. I go in, the bundles are all ready at the checkouts, and score, i finally have a PS3 and Metal Gear Solid 4.

A little shocked by the no crowd, but MGS always felt more cult to me than media whores like Halo or GTA.

Now I have to set up the system, shave off my Snake mustache that I've been growing for the last few months just waiting for this day; and maybe I'll get back to you guys later with some impressions!

P.S. Now that the game has released I am removing the MGS4 Countdown that has graced the right side of our site for the past few months.

Lucky you....I was at GameStop 1st in line waiting for them just to tell me they didn't have any PS3 and MGS4 bundles....T_T

Oh man Andrew, that blows. How long were you waiting there?

I'm hoping to rent it...my bro's roomie has a PS3 and I'll try to play it on there...I'll feel bad about the how ever many gig install, but w/e I guess...

I don't think cult is the right word.

I was there for about 3 hours so it wasn't that bad but the people at Gamespot are nice enough to give me a call when they receive some

I guess that's cool that they'll call, but sucks that you were there for 3 hours and left empty handed. Especially if you have to wait now...lame. Sorry dude.

Was there a line? like were you alone? cause at Best Buy i too was there for 3 hours and there were no people. Luckily though, because I was given bad info. On the phone i was told they'd have 200 of the bundles.. they only had about 15.

There was like a line of about 10 people. Though funny thing is that I too got some bad info from the store. When I ask to reserve it about 4 days before the release they told me I couldn't reserve it but they had about 11...which turned out to be only 2..... >_>
