Hi Not only is the release of the Sony PlayStation 3 bringing about horribly long lines and unbelievably high auction prices but the shortage is also life-threatening to some. - 1 shot in Conn. Playstation waiting line - Yahoo! News Some would call this maddening or terrible but I call it quite simply: sad. To think that we feel, especially in the US, that we are "on top of the world" and yet we are capable of this...Disappointing indeed. It's not hard to understand how humans will certainly become extinct with such a nature.
