Putting Your Family First and the PS3 Launch

Filed under:News, Playstation 3 — Lake Desire @ 12:34 pm

I’m not planning on getting a PS3 for a few years–waiting for a used one or the price drop–but I’m still amused by the coverage of the release.

Via Kotaku, I found this article on the PS2 launch. Check out this interview:

Nine months pregnant, Julie Mosley said she tried to ignore her contractions for the chance to score machines for her family, her daughter’s father and her younger brother.

“I’m going to hold out as long as I can,” Mosley said Thursday as she sat on a cooler in the 19th spot outside a Circuit City in Mount Laurel, N.J., joking about giving birth on the sidewalk.

I’m perplexed. I’m glad person interviewed is low-key about childbirth and all, but I’m disturbed that she is neglecting her health and comfort to get a PS3 not for herself but for her family.

  1. I’m also concerned about the emphasis on the “daughter’s father” and “younger brother”. I mean, couldn’t they have found one woman in that crowd buying it for herself and used to her balance out the view?
