Local gamers line up for new Playstation 4

Posted: Updated:

The ads for the new Playstation say "greatness awaits," But gamers hoping to grab the hot holiday gift Thursday night found long lines awaiting them.

More than 70 die-hard gamers lined up for hours for the midnight release of the Playstation 4. People brought tents, chairs and blankets to stay comfortable. Those who didn't pre-order the video game system had to try their luck with the limited supply.

Most stores are sold out of the devices already. You can't find them at retailers online either. Parents hoping to get the gift in time for the holidays can try eBay. But, some of the video game systems are already selling for twice the four-hundred dollar price tag.

Those not lucky enough to grab one of the systems, may actually be the lucky ones. Sony is now investigating possible problems with the launch systems. Some folks who got early models say theirs' were essentially dead on arrival.
