I camped out for the 360 'by myself' in the sense that I didn't know anyone I was there with prior to going there. I was friendly with those around me in line, which helped pass the time, but I didn't go into it knowing anyone. Typically though, yes, it's usually two people or more there together

ah...my flyer said opening at 7 am....minimum 6 units of the $499 version would be available, and minimum 20 units of the $599 version would be available. I'm guessing they'll have more than that (this Best Buy usually does)

I'd do 24 hours if I had like 5 friends with me, some beers, and some entertainment. Otherwise, no thanks.

I don't have a portable gaming system, but I did have a portable dvd player in my car, however, we had enough conversation going on about the system and games and everything else that I never got it out of the car

What's crazy about all of this is that you might be able to walk into one of the more "obscure" stores like CompUSA or Sears and pick one up without having to go through the 3 day campout.
