Vista's No PS3, It's Not Even a Wii!

Even a month past Christmas, some gamers are showing up to Wal-Mart at one in the morning to get a Nintendo Wii. It took me a month of constant visits to finally score my son Nick his Christmas present (sorry, dude!).

And the hunt for the PlayStation 3 was even tougher.

So, how did it go the night of the Vista consumer launch? Windows fans weren't exactly breaking out their tents and thermoses, as the lines for the OS were shorter than a Vin Diesel haircut. I guess most consumers are still trying to find a Wii!
