Reports yesterday suggested that the Nintendo Wii queue outside London's Oxford Street HMV - venue of the official launch event - first sprang up on Tuesday. We couldn't quite believe this. What manner of creature, for goodness sake?
And what kind of gigantic fool would brave the tornado-swept streets of London at gone-midnight just to find out what the poor lad had been doing about sanitation?
Since Tuesday at 5pm.
Yeah, I've had a tent and everything.
There was a bin around the corner. I just did it in there.
I've grown up with it and I've enjoyed myself so much during Nintendo games. Everything's just great, and the games are so much fun. They keep doing it. They keep bringing the gameplay, so I'll keep playing.
It's the games. They know how to play. I got to try out Twilight Princess and it's tailor-made. It works so well. It attracts me so much.
I'm going to get Twilight Princess for GameCube but I'm going to leave it sealed because I'm collecting all the Zelda games.
I was going to get a 360 a couple of weeks ago, because I played round my friend's house on Xbox Live and it almost sold it to me, but it's not enough to get me to get a 360.
Not yet, no.
It does appeal to me, but not as much as Zelda. I grew up with Zelda and it's my favourite game. I need Zelda.
I'm going to buy Twilight Princess. I'd buy Twilight Princess before the Wii because I want it more than the Wii itself. And I'm going to get Red Steel and Super Monkey Ball. And Wii Play to get the extra remote.
£300 plus. But I've been saving.
I'm not bothered about spending that much money.
I'm not planning on it, but maybe if there's money to be made in it. It's too expensive. I don't really care about the PS3.
I haven't seen anything that great. They don't bring out much. Resistance: Fall of Man is the only title that everyone's been talking about, so I might try it out. But I'm not really interested.
Read on to hear what second in line, Daniel Kirby, had to say for himself.
